Formatted abstract
It is the aim of this thesis to examine how problems with rural residential development may be overcome by involving the community in the land use decision-making process. Consequently, this thesis will:
- establish the conflicts existing in rural communities as a result of rural residential development;
- describe a decision-making process which involves the community in determining where rural residential land use should occur and how it should be managed.

The planning mechanisms currently operating in Queensland will be assessed with regard to their abilities to resolve land use conflict and to plan for future land development. Procedures for evaluating the suitability of land for rural residential use, will be described as will methods for involving the public in allocating efficient rural residential development to suitable land types.

The objectives of this paper follow:

OBJECTIVE 1: To examine the conflicts arising in rural communities due to rural residential land use, and to propose how these might be overcome by involving the community in planning decision-making.

OBJECTIVE 2: To determine how rural residential land use might be allocated to the most suitable land type where it is least likely to conflict with surrounding uses.

OBJECTIVE 3: To present guidelines for ensuring that rural residential land use is conducted in a sustainable manner.

OBJECTIVE 4: To recommend how sustainable rural residential land use can be planned for under legislation and with the assistance of the community.
