1 State Planning Policy 2/07: Protection of Extractive Resources
Presented by Mal Irwin & Andrew Macpherson Mineral and Extractive Planning

2 Aim of Workshop Familiarisation on State Planning Policy 2/07: Protection of Extractive Resources (SPP 2/07) and associated SPP 2/07 Guideline Training on the implementation of SPP 2/07 and associated SPP 2/07 Guideline

3 Recent History IPA Schedule 4 Process for making or amending State planning policies: Consultation Stage Extensive Policy consultation completed in January 2006; 160 written submissions were considered; and SPP was amended and endorsed by Cabinet;

4 Recent History cont’d Adoption Stage
SPP 2/07 was adopted 8 June 2007 by DLGPSR Minister; SPP 2/07 notified 8 June 2007 in Government Gazette; Submitters and CEOs notified in writing June 2007; SPP 2/07 advertised 16 June 2007 in The Courier Mail and regional newspapers; Media Statement ”New planning policy to protect community and quarry resources” issued 25 June 2007 by DME Minister

5 Status of Policy State Planning Policy 2/07: Protection of Extractive Resources A statutory instrument – Schedule 4 of Integrated Planning Act 1997 The State Planning Policy 2/07 Guideline Extrinsic material – Statutory Instruments Act 1992 SPP 2/07 commences on 3 September 2007

6 Policy Outcome SPP 2/07 identifies those extractive resources of State or regional significance where extractive industry development is appropriate in principle, and aims to protect those resources from developments that might prevent or severely constrain current or future extraction when the need for utilisation of the resource arises

7 Rationale behind the Policy
The location of extractive resources is determined by geological conditions and resources are by nature finite Need to access extractive resources close to their markets and minimise transport Consequences of not protecting extractive resources are severe for the community

8 Reflecting the SEQ Regional Plan
SPP 2/07 is consistent with the SEQ Regional Plan, which aims to protect extractive resources for potential future extraction and their associated transport corridors. The SEQ Regional Plan relies on SPP 2/07 to provide the detailed basis for achieving this aim.

9 Relationship with other State instruments
The KRAs attached to SPP 2/07: have considered existing State instruments satisfy the public interest of those instruments at a strategic level are integrated into ‘the Koala Plan’ addressing development and land use in Koala Habitat Areas within the SEQ region (SEQ Regional Plan)

10 Demand for extractive resources
Current figures show each man, woman and child uses: 27 kgs of rock and sand every day 10 tonnes each year 800 tonnes in a life time Queensland’s Population Future (2006 Edition) –forecasts medium average growth of 77,000 new people per annum over the next 20 years

11 Accumulated demand forecasts for SEQ (construction aggregates)
Construction aggregates include sand, gravel, quarry rock, clay and soil They are essential raw materials for building homes, hospitals, schools, factories as well as supporting infrastructure such as roads, railways, airports, seaports, water supply and sewerage systems

12 Annual demand forecasts for SEQ

13 Supply forecasts for SEQ
In SEQ, extractive resources currently approved for extraction are likely to be exhausted— if no additional approvals are granted under IPA: for sand and gravel by 2017; and for hardrock by 2021

14 Implications of additional transport costs
In 2005, the average market price per tonne was $17. If additional transport costs (say 50 kilometres), this would increase the price per tonne between $6.50 and $9.00 In SEQ, the cumulative consumption is estimated at 690 million tonnes to If any additional transport costs (say 50 kilometres), this would increase the cost by at least $4.5 - $6.2 billion over the 20 year period.

15 Implementing the new State Planning Policy 2/07: Protection of Extractive Resources

16 SPP 2/07 and associated SPP 2/07 Guideline
Under the Integrated Planning Act 1997, the Policy has effect when planning schemes are made or amended, when development applications are assessed and when land is designated for community infrastructure The SPP 2/07 applies to premises within a Key Resource Area

17 Areas to which SPP 2/07 applies refer Policy Annex 2
To those local government areas where the Policy identifies all or part of a Key Resource Area (KRA) (including transport route)

18 KRA elements the resource/processing area; and the separation area around the extractive resource/processing area; and the associated transport route with a separation area of 100 metres either side of the road or rail reserve boundary or, if no reserve the centre line of the indicated route

19 KRA Model

20 Example of KRA Map

21 KRAs may be amended by A Local Government when making or amending its planning scheme with the agreement of DME and with approval of the planning Minister, or DME through the formal review of the SPP as required under Schedule 4 of the IPA Future KRAs may only be added through the formal review of the SPP as required under Schedule 4 of IPA.

22 How is the Policy outcome achieved ?
By fully incorporating the protection of KRAs when making or amending a planning scheme By having regard to the Policy when considering development to which the Policy applies By having regard to the Policy when land is designated for community infrastructure

23 Using the Policy when making or amending a planning scheme refer Policy Part 3 & Guideline Part 4
include KRAs as one or more zones or overlays; for premises within a KRA and consistent with Part 4: - allocate compatible land uses; - make development to which the Policy applies assessable or self assessable; - incorporate assessment criteria in one or more applicable codes for assessable or self assessable development; and state the information that may be requested for assessing development to which the Policy applies

24 development assessment
Using the Policy in development assessment The Policy outcome is achieved when development is compatible with current and future extraction, processing and transportation of extractive resources

25 Development to which SPP 2/07 applies
Reconfiguring a lot in: All KRA areas Resource / Processing Area Separation Area for the Resource / Processing Area & Transport Route Material change of use in: Separation Area for the Resource / Processing Area EXCEPT: Caretaker’s residence for extractive industry Agriculture not involving intensive animal husbandry Forestry Nature Conservation Land fill or refuse transfer station Passive recreational uses such as open space Separation Area for the Transport Route SPECIFICALLY: Increasing the number of people living in the area Operational works in: Operational works associated with the making or upgrading of vehicular access to the transport route ----- -----

26 development assessment
Using the Policy in development assessment refer Policy Part 4, Sect 7 The Policy outcome is achieved when development— in a resource/processing area is associated with either the extraction or processing of the extractive resource;

27 development assessment
Using the Policy in development assessment refer Policy Part 4, Sect 7 The Policy outcome is achieved when development— in the separation area for a resource/processing area does not increase the number of people living in the separation area; and to the greatest extent practicable minimises the potential adverse effects from existing or future extractive industries on people working or congregating in the separation area; and does not compromise the function of the separation area in providing a buffer between extractive/processing operations and any incompatible uses outside the separation area;

28 development assessment
Using the Policy in development assessment refer Policy Part 4, Sect 7 The Policy outcome is achieved when development— in a transport route’s separation area does not increase the number of people living in the separation area; and with direct vehicular access to the transport route does not adversely affect the safety and efficiency of vehicles using the transport route to transport extractive resources from an existing or future extractive industry

29 Regard for the Policy when land is designated for community infrastructure
Community infrastructure means community infrastructure as stated in Schedule 5 of IPA A State Minister or a local government may designate land for community infrastructure Refer to IPA Community Infrastructure Implementation Note 1, January 2007

30 Acceptable circumstances for not achieving the Policy outcome refer Policy Part 4, Sect 8
(a) the development is a development commitment; or (b) a material change of use— (i) that provides an overriding benefit to the State or regional community in social, economic or ecological terms that outweighs the community benefit of maintaining the long-term availability of the extractive resource; and (ii) cannot reasonably be located elsewhere

31 What SPP 2/07 does not do ? Does not give quarry approval (refer Policy - Part 4, Sect 7 (2) & Sect 7 (3)) Does not regulate quarries (refer Policy - Part 2, Sect 5) Does not remove development rights (refer Policy - Part 4, Sect 8 & Part 5, Sect 10) Does not apply to a ‘domestic activity’ (refer Policy - Part 5, Sect 10) Does not apply to building work (refer Guideline - Sect 3.12)

32 Further sources of information and advice refer Policy Part 5, Sect 9
