Ipswich in Summer 22-23

It is now even easier for the community to view development applications and property data after council flicked the switch on a new online tool. ‘Development.i’ provides improved and easier access to historic and current planning and property information. Development.i replaces council’s previous PD Online application tracking system, allowing the community to track development applications in a more user-friendly way. It puts a wealth of information at residents’ fingertips, making it easy to search for property information, be notified about development applications and lodge submissions or comments on applications. Users can look up what development applications are active in your street and the search results can be filtered and shown on a map for easy reference. Users can also set up alerts to be notified when development applications are lodged. NEW ONLINE TOOL IMPROVES ACCESS TO IPSWICH PLANNING INFORMATION

In the 2021-2022 financial year, about 1,300 development applications were lodged to council, an increase of 7 per cent year on year. Council is embarking on a program of improvements including a new planning scheme and a new local government infrastructure plan. The upcoming new planning scheme is being prepared in an electronic format to allow planning information to be communicated more readily to the community. It is anticipated these new systems will be connected so that council can provide better information about the planning scheme, how it impacts property and how this relates to development across Ipswich. Development.i can be accessed at Developmenti.ipswich.qld.gov.au
