Temporary Local Planning Instrument - TLPI

A Temporary Local Planning Instrument, or TLPI, is a statutory instrument created under the provisions of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 which may suspend or otherwise affect the operation of a planning scheme (i.e. Brisbane City Plan 2014) for a period of up to one (1) year from its effective date.

Generally, a TLPI is an interim response that:

  • is put in place quickly to protect a specific local government area from adverse impacts
  • prevails over the City Plan when an inconsistency arises
  • enables longer term planning provisions to be shaped while it is in effect (usually a change to the City Plan takes 12 months)
  • is effective for up to one (1) year.

Previous TLPIs - no longer in effect

On 8 May 2014, Temporary Local Planning Instrument 01/14: Protection of Residential Buildings Constructed Prior to 1911 (TLPI 01/14) came into effect.

TLPI 01/14 provided for the assessment of the removal or demolition of any residential building constructed prior to 1911 within the Demolition Control Precinct and Demolition Control Precinct (Local Character Significance), as well as those buildings identified by TLPI 01/14 as being residential buildings constructed prior to 1911. TLPI 01/14 was repealed on the commencement of Brisbane City Plan 2014 on 30 June 2014.

TLPI 01/13 Protection of Residential Buildings Constructed Prior to 1911

In order to protect residential buildings constructed prior to 1911, Council adopted TLPI 01/13 Protection of Residential Buildings Constructed Prior to 1911. This provided for the assessment of the removal or demolition of any residential building constructed prior to 1911 within a Demolition Control Precinct or Demolition Control Precinct (Local Character Significance), as well as those buildings identified by TLPI 01/13 as being residential buildings constructed prior to 1911.

TLPI 01/12 Brisbane Interim Flood Response

Following the Brisbane floods in January 2011, Council took steps to provide guidance for development in flood-affected areas. To do this, Council adopted Temporary Local Planning Instrument 01/11 - Brisbane Interim Flood Response, and subsequently, Temporary Local Planning Instrument 01/12 Brisbane Interim Flood Response. Temporary Local Planning Instrument 01/12 expired on 15 May 2013 and was replaced by the Brisbane Interim Flood Response provisions in the Brisbane City Plan 2000. Brisbane's City Plan 2000 was superseded by City Plan 2014 on 30 June 2014.  The provisions of City Plan 2014 now guide development in flood prone areas.
