Supporting the delivery of Gold Coast 2020

We plan for the future of the city.

We manage the city responsibly.

Gold Coast 2020 is supported by other key documents such as the City Plan 2015 and key strategies which will help to transform the city such as Transport, Ocean Beaches, Economic Development and Culture.

A highlight during the life of the plan is the city hosting the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games™ (GC2018) in 2018 and benefiting from the legacy of GC2018 for generations to come.

City-wide engagement informed the development of Gold Coast 2020. The plan will be used to inform annual planning and budget priorities for the City of Gold Coast, with its progress reviewed on an annual basis.
