Enhancing reef regulations discussion paper

The Queensland Government proposes broadening and enhancing the existing reef protection regulations to eradicate the most polluting practices from land-based activities in the Great Barrier Reef catchments including agricultural production, urban development and other intensive land uses.

The proposed changes will form an important part of the comprehensive effort to radically improve the quality of water flowing to the Great Barrier Reef to meet the government’s reef water quality targets and community expectations for a clean and healthy reef.

The Enhancing regulations to ensure clean water for a healthy Great Barrier Reef and a prosperous Queensland discussion paper provides information about the regulatory proposals being considered.

Feedback is sought on specific questions to help the government further determine the costs and benefits of the regulatory proposals. These will be detailed in a Regulatory Impact Statement which will be released for public consultation later in 2017.
