The committee tabled its Report No. 46, 57th Parliament - Planning (Inclusionary Zoning) Amendment Bill 2023 on Thursday, 19 October 2023.


About the bill 

On 19 April 2023, Dr Amy MacMahon, Member for South Brisbane, introduced the Planning (Inclusionary Zoning Strategy) Amendment Bill 2023 into the Queensland Parliament. The Bill was referred to the State Development and Regional Industries Committee for detailed consideration.   

The purposes of the Bill are to a) build housing via requiring developers to do so and b) integrate public housing with other residential areas in order to maximise social inclusion. The Bill proposes to achieve these objectives by enacting an inclusionary zoning strategy under which developers will be required to dedicate 25% of new residential dwellings, including apartment buildings and housing estates, as public housing. The Bill requires the Queensland Government to introduce the strategy into Queensland Parliament within 2 months of the Bill’s date of assent.
