Programs of works
The Coordinator-General may develop a program of works for any part of Queensland to be undertaken over a set period of time.
The works could be undertaken by the Coordinator-General or his/her agents, or a local body or person required or permitted under legislation to undertake the works.
Local bodies include:
- government-owned corporations
- statutory bodies
- other bodies established under an Act
- corporations whose shares are wholly owned by the State and/or local government/s
- subsidiaries of the abovementioned corporations.
The program of works must be approved by the Minister and Governor in Council and published in the Queensland Government Gazette.
The term 'Governor in Council' means 'the Governor acting with the advice of the Executive Council'.
The combination of the Governor and the Executive Councillors gives legal authority for actions to be taken or actions or decisions made under Acts of Parliament or the Constitution itself.
Once gazetted, the program of works is binding on the Coordinator-General and all other persons concerned.
