Overview of Submissions and Responses

Council received 3252 submissions during the consultation period for the Draft Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme. Of these, 2880 related to the de-amalgamated Sunshine Coast Council area.

A range of issues were raised. About a third of submissions sought a change in zoning for a particular property or group of properties. Around half of submissions related to a handful of localised issues. For example, over 900 submitters were concerned with extractive resources near Browns Creek Road, Bridges and Yandina Creek.

While a number of issues have emerged as key concerns, on the whole the draft planning scheme was well received by the community. A summary of the submissions and an overview of council's response is provided in the Summary of Submissions and Responses [PDF 80KB].

Council has prepared key issue reports to provide more detailed responses to the concerns raised. They have been categorised into 'region wide' and 'area specific'.
