New pilates studio for Noosaville Industrial Estate

New pilates studio for Noosaville Industrial Estate

RG Strategic has lodged a development application for Unit 1, 8 Venture Drive.

The application is to seek approval for a Development Permit for a Material Change of Use for an Indoor Sport and Recreation use.

The project’s proponents, KX Pilates, plan to convert the existing retail space into a new pilates studio.

As the site is included in a Medium Impact Industry Zone and the Venture Drive Enterprise Precinct, the proposed change triggered a Code Assessment.

The proposed use will be within the existing building within the Venture Drive Enterprise Precinct of the Noosaville Industrial Estate. The existing building is intended to remain unchanged with the exception of a minor internal reconfiguration. The proposed pilates studio will comprise:

  • 46m² of reception area,
  • 96m² of pilates reformer area, including 14 x reformer beds, and
  • 64m² of amenities, storage and office area.

RG Strategic prepared the application and required responses to the Code Assessment to help ensure a positive outcome for KX Pilates.

Our report covered:

  • Proposed development intent;
  • Description of the characteristics of site and surrounds;
  • Proposed development details;
  • An assessment of the proposal against the State planning interests;
  • An assessment of the proposal against the Noosa Plan 2020; and
  • A conclusion that summarises the grounds which support the proposed development.

Only minimal changes internally are required for the pilates studio, with the exterior remaining untouched with the exception of some signage updates and application

KX Pilates’ expansion into Noosaville brings the New Zealand and Australian brand to health-conscious consumers on the Sunshine Coast.


When we made the decision to re-launch the Noosa Enduro, Russell and his team at RG Strategic was the first phone call we made. Russell's immense knowledge of the local council landscape and processes were vital to our event to ensure correct planning, applications and permits were in place. The professionalism shown throughout all of our high level dealings and documents elevated our event and helped provide confidence to all key stakeholders. I'm thrilled we made the decision to engage Russell and the team at RG Strategic and I will remain a client for many years to come.

Russell and the team at RG Strategic were amazing throughout our whole Development Application with council. To be honest, I don't think we would have even made the move to our new premises with how daunting a Material Change of Use Application is. We are experts in human movement, not this stuff, so we are super grateful these guys made the process seamless and also speedy! Council told us a 3-5 month application process and these guys got it in right on the 3 month mark for us! Thanks for your patience and professionalism guys! We appreciate it more than words can say.

We engaged RG Strategic to help us with our liquor licence and food licence for our new venue Flo's Creperie in Mooloolaba. Having worked with Russell, Maree and Tracey during the launch of our Noosa venue, we already knew they were a highly professional and knowledgeable team. This time, however, they really went above and beyond, performing a few miracles along the way to ensure we opened up on time. We couldn't be more grateful for their arduous work and commitment. I highly recommend RG Strategic to anyone who needs assistance with planning matters, and I look forward to working with them again in future!
