Noosa Plan 2020, Town Planning

Noosa Shire is preparing for significant changes to the Noosa Plan 2020, and we want to ensure you are informed and ready.

These amendments aim to address housing choice and affordability issues, potentially impacting property owners and residents across the Shire.

At their meeting on 13 May 2024, Noosa Shire’s General Committee reviewed proposed amendments and endorsed them for public notification and community consultation.

This is a critical moment for the community to get involved and have their say.

Why These Changes Matter

The proposed amendments to the Noosa Plan 2020 are designed to tackle ongoing concerns about housing diversity and affordability.

While the exact details of the amendments are confidential until their release on 31 May 2024, we know they will involve important changes to definitions, zoning adjustments, and new requirements aimed at better meeting the housing needs of Noosa Shire.

  • Secondary Dwellings in Rural Areas: Clear guidelines for secondary dwellings in Rural and Rural Residential zones.
  • Relocatable Home Parks: Extending consistent use provisions for retirement facilities to include relocatable home parks.
  • Simplified Approvals for Rural Dwellings: Removing several requirements for accepted development of dwelling houses in rural zones.
  • Zoning Map Amendments: Potential changes affecting key locations such as Doonella Street (Tewantin), Goodchap Street (Noosaville), Carramar (Cooroy Noosa Road, Tewantin), Ben Lexcen Drive (Sunrise Beach), and Garnet Street (Cooroy).

Bare Bones Movement Pilates needed a town planning consultant for our change of use application within Noosa Council zoning and requested a variety of service breakdowns and quotes. RG Strategic provided us with a sense of confidence, an all-inclusive rate, and followed through until our commercial use was granted. The ongoing communication throughout made all the difference to this process as we could focus on our business set-up while council approval was being handled by RG Strategic.
