Council to release its vision for Caloundra South
  • Wednesday 01 July 2009

Balancing 50,000 residents in 23,750 new dwellings in a sustainable and responsible way is at the heart of Council’s vision for Caloundra South in a position paper to be released tomorrow for public comment.

Sunshine Coast Council endorsed the Caloundra South Position Paper at a Special Meeting of council late last month.

The Paper is the strategic planning document which informs the drafting of planning scheme amendments including the Caloundra South Structure Plan and related documents.

The 2360ha Caloundra South site is located south of the established Caloundra urban area, bordering the Bruce Highway and north of Bells Creek Road.

The State Government, as part of its Queensland Housing Affordability Strategy, identified Caloundra South late last year as one of the greenfield areas capable of being fast tracked for development, requiring council to have the site ‘developer ready’ by June 2009.

The media are invited to a briefing on the details of the Caloundra South Position Paper at 11am tomorrow, at the Caloundra Office of the Sunshine Coast Council, before the paper goes on public display.

Councillors and staff will be available for interview at this time.
