The State Government and City of Gold Coast are working in partnership to unlock economic opportunities on The Spit to deliver on key actions within The Spit Master Plan. To ensure future development opportunities align with the Master Plan, the State gave the City a Ministerial Direction to amend the City Plan (in accordance with s26 of the Planning Act 2016). The consultation period for the proposed changes ran from 21 May to 19 June 2020.
Public consultation for The Spit Master Plan Implementation (key development sites) and Our City Our Plan (Jeffersen Lane) has now closed. City officers will review submissions. A full submissions report will be available for each amendment once the review of submissions has concluded.
Our City Plan commenced on 2 February 2016 and has undergone a series of amendments to respond to emerging opportunities and reflect community aspirations. The City Plan links with our mapping solution to provide an interactive and simple way of navigating the City Plan. Access the City Plan.
