Gold Coast City Council
Superseded Planning Scheme
Request Deadline Approaches
2nd February 2017
The current Gold Coast City Planning Scheme was released on 2nd February 2016 to supersede the Gold Coast Planning Scheme 2003 Version 1.2 – amended November 2011.
With each new City Planning Scheme, new development benefits & options are created from updated mapping and development codes. However, these changes have created development limitations within certain areas of the Gold Coast, with some areas now being subject to increases in levels of assessment or the impact of the environmental significance overlay mapping & lower building/density restrictions.
Section 95 of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 provides the opportunity for requests to be made for development applications to be assessed against a Superseded Planning Scheme. This request must be made to Council within one year of the new Planning Scheme or amendment taking effect. This period will expire on the 2nd of February 2017.
Contact us today to discuss your development rights under the current City Plan or an assessment against the superseded Planning Scheme. We look forward to assisting you to achieve your development goals.
