Temporary Local Planning Instruments No. 1–4 (Party houses)

Adopted by Council: May 2015

In October 2014, the State Government introduced laws enabling residential premises being used as 'party houses' to be regulated.

In response to significant community concern, the first TLPI to regulate party houses in residential houses on the Gold Coast was adopted. Each year upon expiry of the TLPI, Council adopted a new TLPI until the provisions were adopted as part of Major Update 1 & 1B to our City Plan.
