From 2015, year 7 will become part of secondary schooling. To assist schools with the transition, the Sustainable Planning Regulation 2009 has been amended to include criteria which, when met, exempts school development from assessment against a local government planning scheme.

A compliance checklist has been prepared for development projects under the Queensland Government's Flying Start for Queensland Children program (Flying Start program). For a development to be exempt development under a planning scheme, all of the criteria in the checklist must be met.
