Consultation open for planning scheme amendments
  • Monday 02 November 2020

Community consultation is now underway for proposed amendments to the Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 and Planning Scheme Policies.

The proposed planning scheme amendment relates to additional South East Queensland Regional Plan 2017 (SEQRP) sites and other zoning matters.

The amendment is proposing to change the zoning and local plan area boundaries for specific sites located at Bli Bli, Chevallum, Forest Glen, Landsborough and Yandina.

The proposal is in response to changes to the Urban Footprint under the SEQRP and to better reflect existing development approvals or desired future land uses for certain sites.

Further details on the specific sites subject to the proposed planning scheme amendment can be found in the following information sheets relating to:

The proposed amendment to the Planning Scheme Policy for Development Works updates the standards, specifications and procedures to guide the design, construction and delivery of infrastructure and works associated with new development (e.g. road, stormwater, landscaping and recreation infrastructure).

This amendment is also proposing to make editorial and operational changes to help improve the planning scheme policy for users.

The submission period on the proposed amendments will be open from Monday, November 2 to Friday, December 4, 2020 (inclusive).

Feedback received during the community consultation period will inform the proposed amendments, which will then be presented to council for consideration.
