The draft Major Development Plan was approved by the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development, the Hon Warren Truss MP, on 19 January 2016, following extensive consultation with the community and other key stakeholders.

The Minister’s decision was then appealed by community members and an Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) process followed. The ILS achieved AAT approval on 2 March 2017.
