    Preface

    Using this state interest guidelineThe Queensland Government established the State Planning Policy (SPP) to define the specific matters of state interest in land use planning and development. To support the implementation of the SPP, each state interest in the SPP is supported by a state interest guideline such as this one.

    This state interest guideline must be read in conjunction with the SPP.

    Where text in this guideline is in a coloured text box, it is an excerpt from the SPP and is the states policy about a matter of state interest.

    In relation to making or amending a planning scheme, the SPP quoted text defines what a local government should do in preparing or amending a planning scheme (ie. the state prefers this policy but will consider alternative approaches based on specific local context or issues).

    Where interim development assessment requirements apply for a state interest (because the relevant planning scheme has not yet integrated the state interest or an amendment to the SPP has occurred subsequent to the scheme), the SPP quoted text defines requirements that must be applied in the assessment of applicable development applications.

    Content within this state interest guideline that is not an excerpt from the SPP provides further context and explains how the SPP policies can be applied. It does not introduce or define any new policies which do not exist in the SPP itself. The use of such guidance material is optionalit does not form a statutory component of the SPP and hence is not a mandatory requirement of the state.

    PART A: Background and core concepts

    PART

    A

    BackgroundStrategic airports and aviation facilities play a key economic, tourism, social and defence role in Queensland. The Queensland Government recognises the need to protect aviation assets to support growth of the states economy and tourism industry, regional communities and national defence. Protection of strategic airports and aviation facilities also supports Commonwealth, state and local government investment in aviation infrastructure assets and public passenger transport flights.

    The Australian Government also has a direct role in protecting strategic airports and aviation facilities in Queensland. The role of the Australian Government is highlighted in blue boxes throughout this guideline.

    State Planning Policy (SPP) code: Strategic airports and aviation facilities The SPP (part H) includes a development assessment code for strategic airports and aviation facilities. Local governments and development proponents are encouraged to use this code to assist in the integration of this state interest in both plan making and development assessment.

    State intereststrategic airports and aviation facilitiesPlanning protects the operation of strategic airports and aviation facilities, and enables the growth and development of Queenslands aviation industry.

    Core conceptsAppendix 1 provides advice around those core concepts which must be considered in the integration of the state intereststrategic airports and aviation facilities, specifically:

    What is a strategic airport?

    What is an aviation facility?

    What is operational airspace?

    What is a public safety area (PSA)?

    What are the impacts of aircraft noise?

    What is a building restricted area?

    How to appropriately integrate the policy1.1 A local planning scheme should ensure that the

    location of strategic airports and aviation facilities are identified in their local planning instrument and include airport environs overlay mapping. This mapping should include the below information in order to appropriately protect strategic airports and aviation facilities. While available information will vary depending on the airport/aviation facility, this could be done with overlays that show:

    operational airspaceObstacle Limitation Surface (OLS) surface (for Leased Federal and other strategic airports) or Height Restriction Zone (for defence airfields and joint-user airfields)

    lighting area buffer zoneareas within six kilometre radius of a strategic airports runway measured from the aerodrome reference point and lighting intensity zones AD

    wildlife hazard buffer zoneareas within three, eight and 13 kilometre radius of a strategic airports runway measured from the aerodrome reference point

    building restricted areas for aviation facilities

    PSAs

    ANEF contours.

    Policy 1Identifying strategic airports and aviation facilities, and associated operational airspace, public safety areas, lighting area buffer zones, wildlife hazard buffer zones, Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) contours, and building restricted areas.

    PART B: Integrating the state interest into planning schemes

    PART

    B

    1.2 The SPP Interactive Mapping System includes mapping layers depicting the location of strategic airports, aviation facilities, operational airspace (with the exception of Height Restriction Zones), PSAs, ANEF contours and building restricted areas (with the exception of satellite ground station [SGS], glide path and localiser facilities).

    1.3 Height Restriction Zones for a defence airfield or joint-user airport can be sourced directly from the Department of Defence (DoD). In future, mapping of Height Restriction Zones, lighting area buffer zones and wildlife hazard buffer zones will also be available from the SPP Interactive Mapping System. It is highly recommended local government request assistance from Airservices Australia to determine the building restricted area for an aviation facility given the highly technical nature of the process.

    1.4 The SPP Interactive Mapping System will include the most recent airport environs overlay data required for each local government area. It is the role of the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) to liaise with all airport managers and Airservices Australia to source the most up-to-date data for each strategic airport and aviation facility.

    1.5 In some instances, ANEF data may be limited or may not exist. In those cases, the airport has not developed an ANEF contour, and for that reason the local government cannot include the ANEF constraints.

    How to appropriately integrate the policy2.1 The strategic framework and land use strategies in

    a local planning instrument should ensure that the aviation industry is supported by promoting the use of the land surrounding strategic airports for aviation industry activities. These land uses include industry involving the design, manufacture, maintenance and repair of aircraft and aircraft components, aviation and aerospace research and technology facilities and facilities for aviation and aerospace education and training.

    Policy 2Facilitating development surrounding strategic airports that is compatible with, depends upon or gains economic advantage from being in proximity to a strategic airport, or supports the role of the strategic airport as a critical freight and logistics hub.

    2.2 Land surrounding strategic airports should also be promoted for use by development that gains economic advantage from being in proximity to a strategic airport, or supports the role of the strategic airport as a critical freight and logistics hub. These land uses include air charter businesses, air freight depots, logistic and distribution centres, flight training and skydiving businesses, warehouses and service industries.

    How to appropriately integrate the policy3(a)1 Land use strategies in a local planning scheme should

    ensure development and associated activities do not adversely impact the safety and viability of strategic airports by creating obstacles in operational airspace or compromising aircraft safety.

    3(a)2 Development and activities which may create an obstacle in prescribed airspace for Leased Federal airports or compromise aircraft safety are defined as controlled activities under the Airports Act and the Airport (Protection of Airspace) Regulations.

    Policy 3Protecting strategic airports by ensuring:

    (a) development and associated activities do not create incompatible intrusions or compromise aircraft safety, in operational airspace.

    3(a)3 The development and activities that may create obstacles should also be avoided in operational airspace for defence airfields, joint-user and other airports. In addition, development and
