Draft Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2012
The public consultation period for the Draft Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme ended on the 14 December 2012. Council received over 3200 submissions in relation to the draft planning scheme.
Following the decision of the state government to de-amalgamate the Sunshine Coast local government area, council has resolved not to proceed with that part of the draft planning scheme that relates to the new Noosa Council area. The Noosa part of the draft planning scheme and all related submissions will be given to the Transfer Manager for the new Noosa Council for its consideration once that council is formed on 1 January 2014.
In accordance with Step 8 of Statutory guideline 02/12 – Making and amending local planning instruments, council is currently in the process of reviewing all properly made submissions for the remainder of the Sunshine Coast area. Council is considering a report outlining the issues raised in each submission and any recommended changes to the draft planning scheme during a series of special meetings.
Submitters will be advised once these deliberations are complete. Each submitter will receive a response detailing how their submission has been dealt with by council. As stated above, Noosa submitters will not receive a response from Sunshine Coast Council. Submissions relating to the Noosa area will be forwarded the new Noosa Council for its consideration.
Following assessment of the submissions, council will submit the Draft Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme to the minister later this year for finalising around January 2014.
