The Queensland Government is now in caretaker mode until after the state election. Minimal updates will be made to this site until after the election results are declared.

The development assessment application process is listed below for applications which are in a priority development area (PDA), and are to be assessed by Economic Development Queensland (EDQ).

Before submitting an application to EDQ, ensure you have checked that your proposed development is in a PDA; that EDQ is the assessment authority (sometimes this might be delegated to a local government authority to undertake), and that you have identified the correct forms to use. This information is available on the Development assessment page.
