QLD REQS

The complexity of site plan requirements in Queensland can vary depending on the nature of your project. Here’s a general overview:

* Minor Works: For minor building projects that fall under the category of accepted development, a detailed site plan might not be required. You can check with your local council to confirm if a simple sketch plan outlining the project’s footprint on the property is sufficient.

* Building Development Approval: If your project necessitates a building development approval, a more comprehensive site plan will be mandatory. This plan should be prepared by a qualified certifier and incorporate specific elements mandated by the Queensland Development Code.

Here are some general requirements for a site plan in Queensland:

* Scale and Legend: The plan must be drawn to a specific scale and include a legend that explains the symbols and notations used.

* Site Details: The plan should incorporate details like the site’s address, real property description, and any existing structures on the property.

* Boundaries and Setbacks: The site plan must illustrate property boundaries and mandatory setbacks from roads and neighboring properties.

* Building Footprints: The plan should show the proposed location and dimensions of any new buildings or structures.

* Utilities and Amenities: The location of existing and proposed utilities (e.g., sewer lines, stormwater drainage) and amenities (e.g., driveways, car parking spaces) should be included.

For larger or more complex projects, additional details such as landscaping plans, noise impact assessments, and traffic flow studies might be required.

Remember, it’s always best to consult with your local council or a qualified professional to determine the specific site plan requirements for your project in Queensland.
