Interim development control orders

The Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics may make an interim development control order (IDCO) by notice in the government gazette.

Orders can be used to override or suspend development provisions or introduce controls in relation to a piece of land for up to two years.

The consent authority must take into account any interim development control order applicable to the land when considering a development proposal.
