Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme Preliminary Consultation
Posted February 22, 2022
The Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 is being replaced.
The Sunshine Coast Council has started the process of preparing for a new planning scheme that will drive planning in the local government area until 2041.
The planning scheme will guide future land use and development including setting local plan boundaries and how the Sunshine Coast will manage growth into the future.
Preliminary public consultation now open
The council has now opened up the initial consultation period for input from the public. They are seeking feedback on the proposed vision and planning directions for the region, planning for local areas, as well as a range of other topics including:
- Housing affordability
- Car parking
- Climate change
- Design of multiple dwellings
- Dual occupancies and secondary dwellings
- Service stations
- Short-term accommodation
- Supply and use of industrial land
- Uses in rural areas
While all of these are significant issues, one of particular topical interest is what Sunshine Coast might be doing about short term accommodation in the future knowing what has happened in Noosa.
If you would like to make a submission on any of the topics above, you must do so by 31 March.

A great big thank you to Russell Green and all the guys at RG Strategic. The result you achieved for us with our complex town planning issue was exceptional. In obtaining the approvals for our restaurant refurbishment and outside area cover we will be in a position to be able to offer our patrons a much more comfortable dining experience. It was reassuring for us to have a town planning consultant with such a complete knowledge of the food/beverage and hospitality industries as well as a thorough understanding of all the technical aspects required to meet Noosa Council's strict approvals process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Russell and the team to anyone who requires planning or compliance services, particularly food premises in the Sunshine Coast or Noosa area. Once again thanks, Russell.

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.
