Council calls for more details on Caloundra South Development
  • Friday 01 April 2011

Sunshine Coast Council has called on the State Government’s Urban Land Development Authority (ULDA) to provide more details about the development at Caloundra South.

Strategy and Planning Portfolio Councillor Russell Green said the release of the ULDA’s draft Development Scheme raised more questions than it answered.

"This is the mother of all motherhood statements, it has plenty of style but very little substance," Cr Green said.

"It says an infrastructure agreement would be nice – but locking-in roads, parks and community centres is a necessity.

"The ULDA has been vague on a number of important issues, including environment and water controls, buffer zones, and where parks will be."

Council only received a copy of the document this morning and will analyse the contents before issuing any further comments.

In January 2011 Sunshine Coast Council applied to the Supreme Court of Queensland for a judicial review into the State Government’s decision to strip Council of its planning powers for the Caloundra South Development and give them to the unelected Urban land Development Authority.
