In December 2019, Council considered a report on the major review of the Toowoomba Regional Planning Scheme and resolved to prepare a new planning scheme to address the findings of the review. 

The review found that the current planning scheme had served the community well, but that there are a range of key issues that would be best dealt with by preparing a new planning scheme.

The new plan will be prepared over four stages.

The first stage starting in 2020-21 will include strategic work to provide a clear set of planning principles and planning policy to inform how development will be managed.
