New Approval - Telecommunications Tower

Lee Morrison - Tuesday, March 19, 2019

The Planning Place recently obtained acceptance for a telecommunications tower at Mt Isa, for the Mt Isa Water Board.  The purpose of the tower was to improve communications between the Mt Isa Water Board’s various sites in the area.

Through detailed investigation, it was determined that Development Approval from Mt Isa City Council was not required.  The proposal did not constitute a Material Change of Use, but simply Building Work, hence was “Accepted Development”.

State interests were however present with respect to protected vegetation (Category B on the regulated vegetation management map).  A ‘relevant purpose determination’ was obtained for relevant infrastructure activities, which was followed by seeking an Operational Works approval from the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning, for the removal of vegetation.  The approval was duly granted.
