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.

The Junction - Coolum
I engaged the services of RG Strategic to help with a unique council development application, Russell and his team came highly recommended. To say that I was impressed with Russell's professionalism, attention to detail and his knowledge of the process is an understatement. At one stage my application was not looking great, this is when Russell really pulled out all stops to ensure that my application got across the line. It was subsequently voted through 6-1 at a council meeting. I would highly recommend Russell, Tracey, Maree and the rest of the team at RG Strategic. Thanks Russell.
