Sunshine Coast Design
Sunshine Coast design is a resource to help plan and design homes, buildings, parks, public spaces, streets and neighbourhoods on the Sunshine Coast using a set of simple and accessible values and design principles.
The Sunshine Coast Design is part of a long term design strategy to help our community and council manage the challenges of population growth, economic development and climate change so that the liveability of the Sunshine Coast is maintained and enhanced into the future.
As more people are drawn to live on the Sunshine Coast, our economy grows and our climate changes, we need to protect the things we value about our region today so they may continue to be available to future generations. Sunshine Coast Design has been developed to inspire and encourage quality place-based design on the Sunshine Coast into the future.
Sunshine Coast Design is a resource to help plan and design homes, buildings, parks, public spaces, streets and neighbourhoods on the Sunshine Coast. It achieves this by using a set of simple and accessible values and design principles.
