Proposed Planning Scheme Amendment

2 Nov 2020 | Source: Sunshine Coast Council

Sunshine Coast Council is proposing to change the zoning and local plan area boundaries for specific sites located at Bli Bli, Chevallum, Forest Glen, Landsborough and Yandina.

Council is inviting feedback on the proposed amendment to the Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014, relating to Additional South East Queensland Regional Plan (SEQRP) 2017 Sites and Other Zoning Matters.

The purpose and general effect of the proposed planning scheme amendment is to make zoning changes and local plan area boundary changes relating to specific sites located at Bli Bli, Chevallum, Forest Glen, Landsborough and Yandina, in order to:

   •  respond to changes to the Urban Footprint under the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2017; and

   •  better reflect existing development approvals or desired future land uses;

   •  amend local plan provisions, where relevant, to provide more detailed planning outcomes in response to zoning and local plan area boundary changes; and

   •  amend the growth management boundaries to reflect zoning changes.
