QuoteBuilding our city, enhancing our lifestyle

The draft plan will create the right conditions for greater economic investment and job creation, while enhancing our enviable lifestyle.

Key aims include facilitating new housing, providing catalysts for jobs, key infrastructure connections and protecting the environment from urban sprawl. The plan will be the city's biggest economic lever, giving confidence to business and certainty to residents about the future of the city.

The City Plan 2015 will help the Gold Coast take full advantage of the significant opportunities ahead, including the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games TM, revitalisation of key centres such as the Gold Coast CBD in Southport, and investment in our transport infrastructure such as light rail. Some parts of the city will evolve and change to create many exciting economic and lifestyle opportunities, while other parts will be protected to maintain their existing unique character.

Final draft City Plan 2015 approvals underway

Wednesday, 8 April 2015 4:00 PM

City of Gold Coast's draft City Plan 2015 is ready for Council's approval to seek Ministerial sign off following a Special Planning Committee workshop today.

Mayor Tom Tate said the meeting brings the City a step closer to its vision for the future development of the Gold Coast.

"The City Plan 2015 has been in the pipeline for 20 months now, so it's exciting to see we are really getting down to the business end of delivering it," he said.

"This planning scheme will act as our biggest economic lever, drive an exciting new city shape and protect our enviable lifestyle."

City Plan 2015 Special Committee Chair Cr Greg Betts said the draft plan now included several changes resulting from submissions made during public consultation.

"Each of the 2,401 submissions have been considered to ensure the legitimacy of our planning process, and to give it the best chance of being approved by the State Government," he said.

"For example, we have adjusted zoning, residential density and building heights along the light rail corridor to better reflect improvements in public transport access."

"We've also lowered levels of assessment for a number of uses in high growth areas."

Mayor Tom Tate said full Council would be asked to endorse the draft plan's progression to the State Government when it meets on Friday.

"On Friday 10 April, Councillors will be asked to approve sending the draft plan to the State Government for its consideration and approval."
