Development in Logan
Development in Logan is guided by the provisions of the Logan Planning Scheme, which is a key policy to help Council manage growth to ensure a sustainable future for the City of Logan, in accordance with Queensland planning legislation. Some development, depending on the location and type, requires a permit/approval obtained by submitting an application (including details about the site/property, proposed development and its impacts) to Council for assessment.
The following information may be helpful, and you can contact a planner during office hours (8am - 5pm Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays). A dedicated planning and development enquiries counter is available at the Administration Centre.
Is approval required?
The Logan Planning Scheme guides what development can occur where and what criteria must be complied with, based on preferred or acceptable land uses and the achievement of desired outcomes for the City of Logan. Whether or not a permit (application & approval process) is required depends on the type and location of the proposed development. For more information please see Assessment Benchmarks.
