MACKAY: Minor planning scheme policy update

Minor changes to the Mackay planning scheme policies (PSP) are expected to be made on March 1. These will affect PSPs regarding subsurface drainage design, structures/bridge design, cycle facilities, and pathway design, pavement design, and site regrading.

Change will affect policy regarding batter treatments including batter location and required stability certification by Registered Professional Geotechnical Engineers.

Consultation on the proposed amendment was undertaken from 10 November until 10 December 2020 and included a workshop on 18 November, which was attended by three local engineering consultants. A report was presented to the Council Ordinary Meeting on 10 February 2021.
