On Thursday 14 July the UDIA* (Qld) held an informative breakfast session at the Queensland Law Society on the new infrastructure charging regime in Queensland. The new legislation implemented on 1 July 2011, impacts on every development in Queensland and is essential knowledge for anyone in the industry.
An audience of more than 120 delegates heard from a panel of experts including Marcus Ford, partner, and Leanne Doxey, senior associate, from Cooper Grace Ward Lawyers. Marcus and Leanne detailed the legalities of the new regime, including the enacting legislation, State Planning Regulatory Provision and resolutions. Jason Natoli, Director for Integran Infrastructure Management, shared with delegates a practitioner’s view and discussed impacts for councils and developers.
The delegates gained valuable insights into the complexities of the new regime and its ramifications for the industry. Feedback from delegates included, “I didn’t appreciate the intricacies of the new system until they were explained to me during this seminar.”
Due to the popularity of the event another session will be held on Thursday, 4 August 2011.
