dc.description.abstractQueensland has been Australia's fastest growing state over the past 20 years. The rate and scale of development has intensified public debate around planning and sustainability in key areas such as transport infrastructure, housing affordability and economic growth and development. The Queensland Government is not coy about staking out an ambitious and competitive economic reform agenda at the state metro-regional or statutory levels. The most recent reform initiatives promote economic development through 'planning for prosperity' and the building of 'a superior planning framework' as a way of consolidating and promoting state interests. This paper focuses on the last two decades of planning reform initiatives in Queensland with particular reference to recent changes to the Sustainable Planning Act 1999 (SPA) such as the State Assessment and Referral Agency (SARA) and the single State Planning Policy (SPP). This procedural emphasis on red and green tape reduction, streamlining planning processes and the development of a one-stop shop sits alongside a collaborative ambition at the metro-regional scale through initiatives such as the South East Queensland Regional Plan (SEQRP) as a means of better facilitating sustainable planning reform - not rhetoric - in Queensland. Keywords: planning reform, regulation, red tape, Queensland
