Abstract

Continuing increases in the area of land use poses a challenge for agricultural industries to be sustainable. Planning legislation such as the Integrated Planning Act 1991 (Qld), in addition to specific industry legislation, provide the legal basis for the different industries to comply with the principles of ecologically sustainable development. As Australia's fifth largest rural industry and the dominant land use along the coastal margin of Queensland, the sugar industry faces considerable challenges in addressing the issue of sustainability. The mechanisms by which land use sustainability is addressed by sugar industry legislation and the implications for environmental protection are discussed in relation to the mechanisms provided under the Integrated Planning Act.
