Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services' Agency Interests in the Queensland Land Use Planning and Development Process and Major Projects
The department provides advice on land use planning and major project proposals regarding potential impact on core client groups and key elements of social infrastructure development which support client benefits and the wider community wellbeing.
The department contributes effectively to managing impacts from growth and development and maximising community benefits in respect to our strategic level interests, namely:
- Improving integration of the planning and delivery of social and physical infrastructure to enable our clients to participate as fully as possible in family life, education, employment and recreation and contribute to the social and cultural life of their community;
- Improving housing diversity, design, choice and affordability for existing and emerging communities, that meets the needs of all stakeholders;
- Ensuring community services, facilities, and infrastructure, including information and engagement activities, are accessible, equitable, inclusive, and safe for all;
- Ensuring respectful engagement with Traditional Owners on areas of cultural significance and identity and ensuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities can participate in and benefit from integrated social and physical infrastructure planning and delivery; and
- Facilitating improved capital investment and management of department-owned and funded property assets.
The department is committed to providing integrated community services that strengthen Queensland. By participating in cross-agency processes, the department collaboratively contributes to the management of impacts of growth and supports our vision of 'fair, cohesive and vibrant Queensland communities'.
