Neighbourhood Framework

Burleigh Beach and Burleigh Headland

Our city’s population is forecast to continue to grow by approximately 15,000 people per year until 2041. Our planning is focused on accommodating this growth while also building on the characteristics that make the Gold Coast unique.

Light rail has transformed public transport and how people move across the Gold Coast. This investment has helped create an integrated multi-modal network that better connects communities with business and jobs, hospitals and medical facilities, education, shopping, dining, entertainment and sporting centres.

Broadbeach to Burleigh Heads corridor

Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 3 has the potential to support renewal of neighbourhoods surrounding the stations as well as improve access for our community and visitors. To ensure these benefits are realised, we have created a Neighbourhood Framework for the Broadbeach to Burleigh Heads corridor.

The Framework will guide planning activities and growth in these areas while maintaining the lifestyle, amenity and coastal character values of these neighbourhoods.

The Framework has been developed in consultation with the community. For more information, refer to the Framework document and engagement and marketing report under Related information.
