With a boundary stretching from Yatala and Stapylton in the north to Tallebudgera Valley and Coolangatta in the south, City planners are helping to create a city internationally recognised for its quality, diversity, sustainable lifestyle, economy and unique environment.

The role of Planners:

City planners are in the engine room for helping to create sustainable growth and development whilst ensuring Gold Coast residents and visitors are able to enjoy our beautiful natural environment now and in the future.

Opportunities exist to work in teams in different streams including:

  • environmental planning
  • development assessment
  • parks and open space planning
  • neighbourhood planning
  • community consultation
  • traffic and transport.

Our planners are faced with new and existing challenges including those that relate to climate, energy, transportation, our beaches, land use, and the community itself. It's a recipe for an exciting and dynamic career with one of Australia’s largest local government employers.
