The repealed Intergrated Planning Act 1997 (IPA) and current Sustainable Planning Act 2009 (SPA) require that each local government authority prepare a planning scheme. These schemes establish the policy for managing the use and development of land with the Local Governement Area (LGA). Development within the Hinchinbrook LGA is governed by the Hinchinbrook Shire Planning Scheme (IPA), which took effect on the 16th December 2005. The current version contains Amendment 1 of 2012 (Priority Infrastructure Plan & Consequential Planning Scheme Changes).
