The Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 identifies an area of land within Kawana as located within Development Control Plan 1 – Kawana Waters. Under the provisions of Development Control Plan 1 (DCP-1), development of land within the DCP area must follow the Master Planned Community Development Process. Council must approve a series of master plans when developing individual sites or precincts.
The Kawana Master Plans are hierarchical and provide varying levels of guidance for land developers and council in the assessment of individual developments. All development must comply with Development Control Plan 1, the Structure Plan and any relevant Master Plans.
The hierarchy of planning documents for Kawana Waters involves:
- Development Control Plan 1 - Kawana Waters
- Structure Plan
- Neighbourhood Plan/Detailed Planning Area Plan
- Precinct/Estate Plan
- Site Development Plan
- Design Plan/Reconfiguring a Lot.
A number of Infrastructure Agreements apply to the development of Kawana Waters, these include:
- Infrastructure Agreement with Respect to the Regional Hospital Land
Refer to the following key maps for the relevant Kawana Master Plans for land within DCP-1. Most sites have more than one layer of master plan, so refer to all key maps below to identify the master plans applicable to your site.
