Our City Our Plan

The City is committed to continually updating the City Plan guided by the community's feedback. We recently asked community for feedback on the Our City Our Plan amendment to help shape the future of the Gold Coast.

We received more than 1300 responses over two rounds of public consultation.

The second round of Our City Our Plan (Major Update 2 & 3) public consultation concluded on 12 February 2020. City officers will now review submissions and decide how to proceed.

To learn more about these updates and have your say on the proposed changes deemed significantly different, please visit GC have your say.
