Ministerial Infrastructure Designation and
Environmental Assessment Report
PROJECT OUTLINE
 

Queensland Health (QH) and Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service (DDHHS) identified the need for a new hospital to replace the older facility in South Toowoomba. In 2019 work commenced on the detailed business case for a new Toowoomba hospital and the preparation of a detailed master plan for the facility. A key part of this planning was to seek approval of a Ministerial Infrastructure Designation (MID) under the Planning Act 2016. Precinct Urban Planning had previously been engaged as the consulting urban planners on the project with the key responsibility being to secure the MID.


In January 2021, Precinct prepared and submitted an Environmental Assessment Report (EAR) to the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning (DSDMIP) in support of a request for a MID for the redevelopment of the Toowoomba Hospital on behalf of DDHHS. The EAR required the coordination and inclusion of many specialist reports including: Socio-Economic, Soils and Geology, Flora and Fauna, Natural Hazards, Heritage and Native Title, Health Safety and Amenity, Traffic and Transport as well as Municipal Infrastructure.
