The Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 regulates the way land, buildings and structures are used and developed on the Sunshine Coast.
On 14 April 2014, council adopted the Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 and associated planning scheme policies (the planning scheme). The planning scheme was gazetted on 2 May 2014 and commenced on 21 May 2014.
As a living document, amendments are made to the planning scheme from time to time. Planning scheme users are encouraged to regularly check for such amendments.
On 12 October 2017, council adopted Temporary Local Planning Instrument (Kawana Waters Town Centre) No.3 which suspends and affects the operation of that aspect of the Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 that incorporates Development Control Plan 1 Kawana Waters.

- permanent siting of shipping containers in certain zones, where in the form of a Class 10a building
