Planning schemes

Moreton Bay Regional Council now has one planning scheme for the region, as well as the Mango Hill Infrastructure Development Control Plan (North Lakes) and The Mill at Moreton Bay PDA Development Scheme.

The MBRC Planning Scheme was adopted by Council on 24 November 2015 and commenced on Monday 1 February 2016. All development applications lodged after 1 February 2016 will be assessed against the MBRC Planning Scheme.

The new planning scheme supports growth and maintains the region's unique characteristics. It will assist in managing future development throughout the region by identifying the preferred locations for land uses and the standards for new development.

The Caboolture ShirePlan 2005, PineRiversPlan 2006 and Redcliffe City Planning Scheme 2005 are now superseded planning schemes. A request for development to be considered under a superseded scheme  was able to be made up until 31 January 2017.

The MBRC Planning Scheme, the three superseded planning schemes, as well as the Mango Hill Infrastructure Development Control Plan (North Lakes) and The Mill at Moreton Bay PDA Development Scheme can be viewed online, or CD and hard copies can be purchased.
