Strategic cropping land
On 13 June, the Strategic Cropping Land Act 2011 was repealed by the Regional Planning Interests Act 2014 (RPI Act). For more information about the RPI Act, including application and assessment processes, contact the Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning.
Information on applications and decisions made under the repealed Strategic Cropping Land Act is available from the SCL applications and decisions register (XLSX, 30.7KB).
Obtaining SCL maps and data
A strategic cropping land trigger map will be used under the new Act. Areas marked on the map as strategic cropping land (SCL) are triggered as the Strategic Cropping Area under the RPI Act.
The updated version of the SCL trigger map (version 2.1) is now available for download. This update has removed the previously validated SCL decisions and excluded areas above the slope criteria limits using new higher resolution slope data.
Online property maps
SCL trigger maps for your property can be requested using the form below. The maps are free and will be emailed to you as PDF files.
You can view the SCL trigger map online by installing Queensland Globe. Open the Globe, then click on the Category globes layer in the bottom left of the screen. Select the farming link on the category globes banner page—a list of layers will appear. Scroll down to find the strategic cropping land layers and metadata. You can view the layers online or download the data for use in geographic information systems (GIS).
To view the SCL trigger map through MinesOnlineMaps, click on Map Layers at the bottom left of the screen. Click on the plus (+) sign beside Constrained Lands to expand the layer, then check the box next to Strategic Cropping.

If you require any additional data layers, email SIProductdelivery@dnrm.qld.gov.au (charges may apply).
Correcting the SCL trigger map
Note: If you are applying for a regional interest development approval under the new RPI Act, you do not need to apply to amend the strategic cropping land trigger map.
If you think there is an error in the map for your property, you can apply to amend the map. Details of the application process will be available shortly. Until then, email SCLNorth@dnrm.qld.gov.au (for areas north/north-west of Wide Bay–Burnett) or SCLSouth@dnrm.qld.gov.au (all other areas) for more information.
The SCL trigger map will be updated periodically to reflect any completed amendments.
