About us

Our service areas

We're working to shape Queensland’s future by driving economic growth and enabling well-planned, inclusive and resilient local communities.

We connect with industry, businesses, community and government at all levels to create place-based solutions that leverage regional strengths and unlock sustainable growth. Success is:

  • a future-focused, innovative, well-planned and diverse economy
  • growth in investment and priority industry sectors
  • coordinated, integrated, interconnected opportunities for regions, industry sectors and the private sectors
  • leveraged opportunities to maximise jobs for Queenslanders in developments, priority industries and associated supply chains, and circular, localised economies
  • sustainable, capable and accountable local governments enabling thriving local communities.

Recent changes to our department

As part of machinery of government changes, effective 12 November 2020, the former Department of Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs was renamed the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning (DSDILGP).

The following functions were transferred to DSDILGP:

  • the state development functions were transferred from the former Department of State Development Tourism and Innovation
  • the infrastructure and planning functions were transferred from Queensland Treasury.

While we update our corporate publications to reflect these changes, some content and publications within this website may refer to these former departments.
