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’m a great believer you engage an expert to achieve outstanding results. I engaged Russell Green of RG Strategic for external and internal alterations to my Noosaville property. Russell’s experience in Town Planning, Council requirements and codes, Strata rules and By-Laws, plus his wealth of building knowledge all contributed to approval of my project, first time around. I’ve already recommended Russell and his team to clients and friends wishing to plan and execute building works.

RG Strategic came to our rescue. After initially engaging another service to assist with our siting variation we received little to no information or support from them and had our application rejected by council. We were left feeling extremely frustrated and let down by the other service. A friend of ours recommended RG Strategic & we are honestly so fortunate that she did. From our first point of contact with Maree we found her extremely professional & knowledgeable leaving us feeling confident & assured. Maree explained everything and nothing was ever too hard. She went above & beyond to problem solve & produce a thorough & detailed siting variation application which shortly after submission was approved by council. We are extremely grateful for Maree, Russell & the team for providing such a professional & quality local service. Thankyou.
