Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014

Share
SC Planning Scheme SC Planning Scheme SC Planning Scheme SC Planning Scheme

On 14 April 2014 council adopted the Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 and the planning scheme policies (the planning scheme). 

The planning scheme and the planning scheme policies were gazetted [PDF 300KB] on 2 May 2014 and commenced on 21 May 2014. 

The Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 replaces the Caloundra City Plan 2004 and Maroochy Plan 2000 planning schemes with one plan for the region.

It is a legal document that controls the way land, buildings and structures are used and developed on the Sunshine Coast to make sure the right development happens in the right locations.

The new scheme:

  • makes it simpler and cheaper to set up a new business with lower assessment levels for a range of uses
  • provides the right conditions for business to prosper
  • is a living document and will be periodically reviewed.
