TOOWOOMBA: Planning Scheme Update

The Toowoomba Regional Council is currently undertaking a new Planning Scheme and Local Government Industry Plan (LGIP) review as part of the Toowoomba Region Futures Program.

There are currently three initiatives under this program including:

  • Toowoomba Regional Growth Plan – Shape a community vision for growth and development in our region for the next 30 years
  • Love Your Local Landscapes – Understand the landscapes most valued by the community and help build a plan to help protect and enhance these areas into the future
  • Talking Towns – Outline a clear vision for the urban form of our towns and townships outside the city, as well as selected inner suburbs of Toowoomba. It will include a range of planning and urban design guidelines and recommendations on topics such as:
    • Street design
    • Building design
    • Village centres
    • Climate-responsive design
    • Ageing in place

Please continue to check this website for any future opportunities to have your say. Don’t hesitate to send your thoughts on these issues to for inclusion in the Institute’s submissions to council.
