  • Infrastructure matters for new PDAs are outlined in the format of a Development Charges and Offset Plan (DCOP).

    Planning, funding and timely delivery of trunk infrastructure and implementation programs is key to progressing development in Priority Development Areas (PDAs).

    Trunk infrastructure is the high-level, shared infrastructure that services large catchments in PDAs. It includes:

    • transport (e.g. roads, pathways, ferry terminals and bus stops)
    • stormwater (e.g. pipes and water quality treatment devices)
    • water supply and wastewater (e.g. reservoirs, pipes and sewage treatment plants)
    • public parks (e.g. parks and sporting facilities)
    • land for community facilities (e.g. land for libraries and community centres)
    • other infrastructure depending on the PDA.

    Charges and terms for infrastructure in PDAs

    Fragmented land ownership in PDAs and the significant cost of trunk infrastructure means it may not be feasible for any one developer, land owner or government entity to fund the trunk infrastructure required to service the PDA.

    Infrastructure charges provide for the cost of trunk infrastructure to be shared between the users of the infrastructure.

    The Minister for Economic Development Queensland (MEDQ) may fix charges and terms for trunk infrastructure in PDAs, under the Act. The MEDQ may also fix charges which are used to support economic and community development within PDAs.

    Infrastructure charges for PDAs are set in either:

    • the Infrastructure Charging Offset Plan (ICOP)
    • the Development Charges and Offset Plan (DCOP)
    • the Infrastructure Funding Framework (IFF).

    Infrastructure Funding Framework and supporting policies

    The Infrastructure Funding Framework (IFF) and its supporting policies set development charges for identified PDA infrastructure. This ensures new development contributes fairly towards the shared costs.

    The current Infrastructure Funding Framework (PDF icon 1 MB) took effect on 1 July 2020.

    The IFF should be read in conjunction with the following policies:

    Development charges and offset plans

    Infrastructure matters for new PDAs are outlined in the format of a Development Charges and Offset Plan (DCOP).

    A DCOP incorporates infrastructure charges, infrastructure planning and offsets processes into one document for each PDA.

    Where a DCOP applies to a PDA, the DCOP prevails over the Infrastructure Funding Framework (IFF) and its supporting documents.

    Currently, DCOPs apply to these PDAs:

    Infrastructure charges and offsets register

    The Planning (Infrastructure Charges Register and Other Matters) Amendment Regulation 2019 (QLD) was passed in October 2019. It outlines requirements for local governments to publish charges and offsets within their local government areas.

    As part of our dedication to transparency and accountability, EDQ is publishing its own register of infrastructure charges and offsets collected in Priority Development Areas administered by EDQ.

    You can filter the register to customise your view. Use our register to see:

    • infrastructure charges collected for EDQ-administered PDAs
    • offsets approved and allocated to an infrastructure charge notice.

    For delegated PDAs, contact the appropriate assessment authority for information on charges collected and offset.

    The following PDAs have infrastructure agreements that partly or entirely override the requirement to pay infrastructure charges. Charges collected in these areas may differ to the charges indicated in the applicable charging instrument.

    • Caloundra South
    • Yarrabilba
    • Greater Flagstone
    • Maroochydore

    Apply to claim an infrastructure offset

    To claim either a provisional or a final infrastructure offset use the online form. Please refer to the application checklist before completing the online form.

    Historical infrastructure charges policies

    Previous versions of infrastructure charges policies are available below for guidance on infrastructure charges within PDAs.

  • The Maturing the Infrastructure Pipeline Program (MIPP) is a $30 million infrastructure planning program that supports the development of a robust project pipeline by enabling projects to be matured from conceptually good ideas into solid proposals.

    The MIPP is being delivered in two phases of work.

    MIPP 1

    Phase 1 involved:

    • Rapid assessment of all proposals raised through consultation and future opportunities from the 2016 State Infrastructure Plan. These reports have all been completed.
    • Early stage assessments of 40 new infrastructure proposals submitted by 22 local governments – currently underway.

    MIPP 2

    Phase two of MIPP involved a competitive grant program open to all Local Governments. Submissions have been assessed and funds have been allocated to 70 projects across 67 Local Governments. These grants fund activities across two broad categories:

    • strategic planning for infrastructure – funding studies and investigations that will assist local governments to form a strategic view of their key infrastructure priorities and needs
    • business cases and/or detailed designs for the development of local government infrastructure proposals to provide better clarity on investment decisions.

    The MIPP is an infrastructure planning program and does not commit the Queensland Government to progress or fund further planning or to provide funding for the delivery of projects.

  • Queensland’s beautiful coastline and world-class marine environments are the envy of the world, and among our state’s leading tourism attractions. These advantages, along with our skilled workforce and excellent marine infrastructure, make us a prime location for superyacht activity.

    The Queensland Superyacht Strategy 2018-23 (PDF icon 2 MB) sets out our support for growing this high-value industry under four priority action areas:

    • supportive, clear and well-communicated policy
    • promote infrastructure to facilitate industry growth
    • promote Queensland as a global superyacht destination
    • support and develop Queensland’s superyacht supply chain.

    The Superyacht Strategy envisions that by 2023, Queensland will be recognised as the Asia-Pacific region’s key superyacht hub with its share of the global superyacht market having increased by 10%. This growth is expected to create thousands of new highly skilled jobs across the state and contribute hundreds of millions of dollars to our state’s economy.

    Superyacht Industry Development Fund

    The Superyacht Industry Development Fund supports Queensland’s small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and not-for-profits in the superyacht supply chain to:

    • acquire internationally recognised industry certification and accreditation that enhance their ability to win superyacht contracts
    • engage with overseas markets and international supply chain opportunities, including increasing participation at international trade shows.

    The second round of the fund opened on 17 December 2019 with two streams of funding available.

    Stream 1: Industry Certification and Accreditation

    Applications for stream 1 funding closed on Friday, 14 February 2020.

    Stream 2: International Market Engagement

    We’re partnering with Queensland’s two superyacht peak bodies, Superyacht Australia and Super Yacht Group Great Barrier Reef, to deliver stream 2 of the fund.

    Superyacht Australia is leading consortia of eligible Queensland SMEs to the Tahiti Superyacht Rendezvous (June 2020), Monaco Yacht Show (September 2020) and Fort Lauderdale Boat Show (November 2020). The Super Yacht Group Great Barrier Reef will also lead consortia of eligible SMEs to the Tahiti Superyacht Rendezvous (June 2020) and Fiji Superyacht Rendezvous (August 2020).

    Eligible businesses may participate in up to three tradeshows and we’re providing up to $3,000 in matched funding for businesses to offset eligible costs incurred from participating in these international market engagement events.

    Also, Super Yacht Group Great Barrier Reef will host an international delegation to the Great Barrier Reef in May 2020 to showcase the region’s attractions and services. We’re contributing funds to help promote the capability of local Queensland businesses that service the global superyacht industry. This will include a Superyacht Information Forum featuring resident industry specialists and tours of local superyacht facilities and shipyards.

  • In 2015–16, the Queensland Government established the State Infrastructure Fund (SIF) to boost infrastructure investment, increase business confidence and to fund government priorities.

    The now $2.2 billion SIF focuses on infrastructure that will enhance productivity and support jobs as well as projects that are ready to be brought to market quickly, so that we continue to underpin productivity and jobs growth in Queensland.

    Some of the core allocations, which have been separately supplemented through the 2017–18 State Budget include:

    • $800 million towards the delivery of Cross River Rail and a further $50 million to establish the Cross River Rail Delivery Authority. Through the 2017–18 State Budget, the government committed to fully funding the project – Read more about Cross River Rail.

    • $300 million for the Priority Economic Works and Productivity Program (PEWPP).Funding has been allocated to the Department of Transport and Main Roads and Queensland Rail to deliver seven high priority transport projects.

    • $180 million for the Significant Regional Infrastructure Projects Program (SRIPP). The SRIPP is delivering 25 social and economic infrastructure projects and programs that respond to a community need or provide increased economic opportunities in key regional centres across Queensland.

    • $20 million for the Maturing the Infrastructure Pipeline Program (MIPP) The MIPP supports the development of a robust project pipeline by enabling projects to be matured from conceptually good ideas into solid proposals. A $10 million top-up was provided through the 2017–18 State Budget taking total government funding to $30 million.
