RG Strategic have had a combined Development Permit approved for 1 Link Crescent, Coolum Beach. The permit covered a Material Change of Use and Operational Works (including operational works civil, landscaping works, stormwater drainage, driveway works and parking) to establish a Low Impact Industry Use for the site.

The subject site is located on the corner of Link Crescent and Quanda Road within the Coolum Industry Park. The site is currently vacant, and no improvements exist on site.

The proposal by development proponents Coolum Beach 2 Pty Ltd comprised a tilt slab building with four industrial tenancies plus a caretaker residence.

Each proposed industrial tenancies contain an open-plan workspace area, mezzanine floor, staff room, toilet and shower, kitchen, and balcony overlooking Link Crescent. The proposed Low Impact Industry Use comprises the following:

  • 1,023m² of gross floor area,
  • 876m² / 52% site cover,
  • 396m² of landscaping,
  • 17 car parking spaces, and
  • 6 motorcycle spaces.

The project deals adequately with easements and parking requirements to maximise usable space on the site.

The exterior renders of the 1 Link Crescent project shows the commercial tenancies featuring double height to accommodate the interior mezzanine floors, and the balconies to each tenancy.


As part of the application, we requested several relaxations to certain requirements, including:

  • a relaxation of the rear setback requirement, and
  • due to the existing encumbrances on the site (easements) and lot shape, a 2-metre wide landscape strip can not be achieved to the full length of the site’s street frontages.

Due to site easements and configuration, landscaping is limited but plans have been developed to maximise available planting space.

We recently used RG Strategic for our food, liquor and design approvals for our new venture at 'The Captains Daughter' in Peregian Beach. Russell and his team have been great to work with and made the process seamless. We got a lot of support with regular site meetings and the ability to call and discuss any issues as they arose for quick solutions. We would highly recommend RG Strategic for all approval processes.

Great experience with Russell and the team, who assisted us with Noosa Council's MCU process. Russell worked with NSC to push this through weeks ahead of schedule, during what is a notoriously busy pre-Christmas period. Great communication, great team, great result - highly recommend for all of your town planning needs.
