Planning & building

The Gold Coast is a vibrant and attractive city. We are working hard to maintain our enviable lifestyle and ensure our city continues to thrive in a sustainable way.

Building Advisory Notes

A set of advisory notes is available that incorporates the City of Gold Coast's preferred design parameters regarding the design and siting of buildings and structures associated with a residential dwelling, as well as amenity and aesthetics information for larger sheds on residential land.

The notes will assist in the making of a Referral Agency Assessment Application for both the siting of buildings and structures as well as amenity and aesthetic issues.

Primarily associated with either the dispensation of setbacks for new dwellings, the construction of carports, garages and sheds within setback clearances or amenity and aesthetic considerations, the notes provide a concise document clarifying the City's requirements regarding such matters.
