Land use conflict between residential and industrial uses can occur due to amenity concerns (e.g. noise, odour and light spillage) and risk the safety of people and property. There are currently 32 Major Hazard Facilities in Queensland, and approximately 12,000 Environmentally Relevant Activities (ERA) throughout the state. ERAs are activities that will, or have the potential to release contaminants into the environment and those contaminants may cause environmental harm. There are also other less significant hazardous facilities known as Dangerous Goods Locations and Large Dangerous Goods Locations. In this regard, there are approximately 3000 Large DGLs throughout Queensland.
There is also land use conflict between agricultural land use and industrial uses. These conflicting uses feature in the proposed Bromelton SDA.
Community will be invited to comment on the draft State Planning Policy (SPP) when it is released.
