State planning regulatory provisions (SPRPs) are state planning instruments made under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 that regulate development. SPRPs can apply to all or part of the state and can be used in the following circumstances:

  2. to provide for charges for infrastructure
  3. to protect planning scheme areas from adverse environmental, cultural, economic or social conditions.

Statutory regional plans utilise SPRPs however, not all statutory regional plans will require regulatory provisions. The need for regulatory provisions will be determined when developing a regional plan.

If a delay in implementing a SPRP will increase the risk of serious adverse conditions or compromise the implementation of a regional plan, the draft SPRP may have immediate effect, for a period of 12 months. This means that draft SPRPs may be in operation and effective while public consultation is carried out and submissions about the provisions are being considered.

The department's website is updated as required to provide the full list of SPRPs and the full list of lapsed and repealed SPRPs.
