Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP)

The current version of the Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) commenced on the 3 March 2020 and forms part of the Rockhampton Region Planning Scheme.

The purpose of the LGIP is to:

  • integrate infrastructure planning with the land use planning identified in the planning scheme

  • provide transparency regarding a local government’s intentions for the provision of trunk infrastructure;

  • enable a local government to estimate the cost of infrastructure provision to assist its long-term financial planning;

  • ensure that trunk infrastructure is planned and provided in an efficient and orderly manner; and

  • provide a basis for the imposition of conditions about infrastructure on development approvals.

The LGIP is underpinned by the Planning Assumptions Report which provides a logical and consistent basis for detailed infrastructure planning within network catchments and states assumptions about the type, scale, location and timing of future development and subsequent population and employment growth up to 2036.

The LGIP identifies the existing and future trunk infrastructure for the following networks:

  • water supply;

  • sewerage;

  • stormwater;

  • transport; and

  • parks and land for community facilities;

The LGIP is located under Part 4 and Schedule 3 of the Rockhampton Region Planning Scheme, which can be viewed online at Rock e Plan.
