Long-term planning and funding of infrastructure for our growing city is critical to maintaining our enviable lifestyle.
On 27 June 2018, we implemented a Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) as Part 4 of the City Plan. The LGIP is required under the Planning Act 2016 and outlines Council's vision for trunk infrastructure over the next 15 years. In July 2019, the LGIP stormwater quality amendment was included in the Plan.
We are currently updating the LGIP and we are planning to deliver an amendment next year.
The draft LGIP amendment was open for public consultation from 1 to 19 August 2022 and public consultation has now closed. After the City has considered all submissions and possible changes to the LGIP amendment, submitters will be notified of the outcome.
For further information on the draft LGIP amendment, visit draft LGIP amendment.

On 4 November 2019, the Water Supply and Sewerage Infrastructure Plan 2019 commenced. This plan forms part of the City of Gold Coast's Water Netserv Plan 2019.This is Council's plan that demonstrates satisfactory provision of water supply and sewerage services under the South East Queensland Water (Distribution and Retail Restructuring) Act 2009. The plan also includes Council's most up to date planning for its water supply and sewerage trunk infrastructure networks. To the extent this plan identifies infrastructure or standards (including desired standards of service) for either network that are different to those identified in the LGIP, Council will use this plan for the purposes of preparing trunk infrastructure conditions. Developers and their consultants are encouraged to review this plan when preparing development applications.
