New rules for industrial developments - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

New rules for industrial developments - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): "Councils will have to consider the impacts of new industrial developments on nearby residents under a new Queensland Government planning policy.

Sustainability Minister Kate Jones says air, noise, and odour emissions should be considered, along with the use of hazardous materials.

She told Parliament the policy says industrial zones should be at least 1.5 kilometres away from homes.

'This policy is about providing the necessary planning framework to ensure that industrial development is planned for and designed in a way that minimises the impacts on local communities,' she said.

'Until now, the interface between industry and residential zones has been managed in a piecemeal way by individual councils.'"
