Council recently made a submission to the Queensland government regarding suggested changes to the draft revision of the South-East Queensland Regional Plan. The submission included the Sunshine Coast Directions Paper which provides a vision and blueprint for future planning on the Sunshine Coast.
The Directions Paper will inform ongoing discussions and planning by setting out some important choices we face in accommodating growth, establishing clear directions for the desired settlement pattern for the Sunshine Coast, and identifying high level parameters to guide future planning for growth. Light rail is a key consideration to how the Sunshine Coast region can move towards a more compact and efficient urban form.
