Will they or won’t they repeal it?
Despite a lot of noise before the recent state election, the Queensland Coastal Management Plan is still with us.
Whether a climate change believer or sceptic, the legislation is there and as an industry we need to ensure preventative and protective measures implemented. Given the time scale of the life of our developments and projects, the risk is too great not to take action.
The good news is that the line has been redrawn and detached dwellings (or homes to most of the population) are exempt from the the legislation unless they trigger specific conditions.
