Sunshine Coast Council Division 10 Councillor David Law is urging all Yandina residents to provide feedback on a proposed amendment to the Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 that impacts the local community. 

The proposed planning scheme amendment is primarily in response to additional land being included in the Urban Footprint of the South East Queensland Regional Plan in 2017.

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

Cr Law encouraged all Yandina residents to view the proposed amendment and have their say.

“This proposed planning scheme amendment has a direct impact on the people of Yandina and this is the best opportunity for people to be informed and give their feedback,” Cr Law said.

“The proposed amendment relates to land located on the northern edge of Yandina’s existing urban area, generally bound by Brandons Road, Steggalls Road and Browns Creek Road.

“The subject land comprises nine lots with a total area of approximately 36 hectares and the proposed amendment also relates to land located along Ninderry Road, north of the Yandina Primary School.

“People can make a submission online by visiting council’s Have your Say website until 4 December.”

Further details on the specific sites subject to the proposed planning scheme amendment can be found in the following Yandina information sheet and hard copies of the proposed amendment and explanatory information can be viewed at Sunshine Coast Council Customer Service Counters and Sunshine Coast Libraries.

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