Induction and Permits

Any work carried out on port land generally requires an induction and/or permits to be completed prior to the start of work. This includes new development, extension of existing facilities and maintenance work.   

If any of the work involves a change of land use, then we may require the assessment of a development proposal against the Codes in the Brisbane Port Land Use Plan 2015 and Port of Brisbane Technical Guidelines 2019.  

For more information relating to planning or land use matters please contact PBPL’s Planners on 07 3258 4888 (during business hours).  

All contractors must review the information below and, where necessary, undertake or obtain the required inductions and permits prior to works commencing.
