YIMBY REASONS FOR APPROVAL
Commencement of the Planning Act 2016 has delivered an opportunity, to start a community conversation about good development outcomes across Queensland. The new planning legislation requires decision makers to publish the reasons why they decide to approve individual development applications (DA). In the past, decision reasons were only required when a DA was refused. This initiative is an opportunity to balance the conversation, to talk about the positives. This is an opportunity at the core of the YIMBY Qld values, an opportunity that YIMBY Qld embraces. YIMBY Qld recognises, celebrates and showcases the many benefits that innovative, sustainable and well-planned development outcomes bring to our cities. We believe good development features one or more of the 4 YIMBY Qld Qualities.
