Our service areas

We're working to create a strong and resilient Queensland economy that supports thriving communities and regions and jobs for all, now and in the future.

We work with business, industry and local government to:

  • create an attractive economic environment that supports growth
  • ensure public and private infrastructure investment is sustainable, meets community needs and generates enduring economic outcomes
  • support industry development, including the development of emerging sectors that will sustain future economic growth
  • deliver effective local government funding programs that create jobs and support Queensland communities
  • plan Queensland communities and regions that support sustainable economic development and to protect and enhance our way of life
  • ensure that state and local government priorities are delivered effectively and with accountability.

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.
