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.
