New development incentives for Nambour Special Entertainment Precinct

New development incentives for Nambour Special Entertainment Precinct

Sunshine Coast Council have just announced new incentives for new bars, theatres, nightclubs, or hotels in the Nambour Special Entertainment Precinct (SEP).

Development application and infrastructure fees halved

The announcement includes the halving of development application fees for bars, theatres, nightclubs, or hotels in the Nambour Special Entertainment Precinct (SEP).

Council have also halved the infrastructure charges for developments in the area.

This means that for a 200sqm nightclub, for instance, the savings could be in the vicinity of $38,400. Not chump change.

The Nambour SEP was created to give operators greater certainty about their operating conditions, especially music venues.

For the Nambour SEP, it means venues are exempt from the amplified music noise requirements of the Queensland Government’s liquor licensing laws.

The SEP includes two buffer zones to protect surrounding neighbours from sound spill.

Time and dollar limits apply

The incentives are in place until June 2025 but are limited to a maximum of $10 million.

Incentive approvals are also granted on a first-in, first-served basis, so if you have been eyeing an opportunity in the Nambour SEP, it’s time to make your move.

I engaged Russell Green from RG Strategic to help me to obtain planning approval for a development project in a sensitive Local Government Area. Throughout the town planning application, Russell not only provided me with the expertise necessary to acquire planning consent but gave me the guidance that I needed to navigate my way through the Council’s Regulated Procedures. Russell and his team consulted with various Local Authorities, Local Members and multiple industry representatives to ensure they provided me with the highest professional level of service and the best available options for development that was essential to the success of the development project. Russell went above and beyond to assist me. I highly recommend Russell and his team to anyone seeking a successful town planning application approval.

Russell Green from RG Strategic helped us on our Parkridge Noosa project with council negotiation, town planning and management of neighbourhood stakeholders. I would be happy to recommend Russell Green personally.

I recently opened Herbert Restaurant in Noosa Junction. Russell and his team's assistance with planning and licensing during the building of my restaurant was outstanding. Engaging professionals like RG Strategic saved us time and money, allowing us to focus on areas where we could have the most impact. I will be using them on our next project.

Russell is an absolute master of all things Noosa. To understand the in's and out's of the system such as he does, takes years of time in the game and Russell has it in spades. Do not hesitate to ask for his help. Thanks a lot Rus!
