FNQROC Development Manual

The Far North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils (FNQROC) has recognised the need to develop comprehensive, structured and practical manuals to identify minimum standards and promote consistency in development requirements throughout the Far North Queensland region.

The Development Manual was prepared to achieve the following objectives:

  • Provide a comprehensive, practical and authoritative guide through the development approval process from inception to completion for Developer’s, Consultants, Contractors and Council Officers.
  • Provide consistency in the requirements of the participating Council’s for development within the region.

Development Manual amendments

FNQROC has recently undertaken a review of the Regional Development Manual. The purpose of these amendments is to ensure the Manual continues to be functional and up to date and to provide a consistent set of standards. For more information visit FNQROC's website. Cook Shire Council resolved to adopt the Regional Development Manual Version 8, as of 10 November 2020.
