Final plan for Caloundra South now available
  • Thursday 02 December 2010

The final structure plan for Caloundra South, which was approved by the Sunshine Coast Council at the end of October, can now be accessed through council’s website.

Council forwarded its final plan for Caloundra South to the Minister for Infrastructure and Planning and the Urban Land Development Authority on 29 October, delivering a structure plan that incorporates excellence in urban design, future public transport, a mix of housing options for affordable living, and an infrastructure plan and agreement.

It is a plan that upholds council's sustainability vision for the region and the desired planning outcomes for Caloundra South, and was informed by the feedback received on the draft structure plan earlier in the year.

In total, 530 submissions were received from the community, the landowner, developers, industry and other key stakeholders addressing a wide range of issues including population, transport, and environmental issues.

Even though the state government announced that the ULDA would take over the planning for the 2290 hectares of greenfield land, council still fulfilled its commitment to provide the finalised structure plan to the Minister and the ULDA by the end of October.

The ULDA has been asked to incorporate the key elements of the finalised structure plan, and council will continue to work closely with them towards a sustainable outcome.

The finalised Caloundra South Structure Plan and associated documents are now available for the community to view on council’s website. The structure plan and documents can be viewed at council customer service centres and libraries.
