Easily search development and building applications and property information, visualise results and receive alerts on new applications.
Development.i is council's new way to stay informed of all development applications in the Sunshine Coast local government area.
It provides users with easy access to past and current applications details and basic property information, so it's easy for you to:
- keep informed about what is happening in your area
- prepare applications
- make a submission to the council on an impact assessable application.
Development.i allows users on any device to:
- be alerted to applications.
Development.i was developed by Sunshine Coast Council, with the assistance of the Queensland Government's Planning Act 2016 Innovation and Improvement Fund.
