Proposed City Plan sent for Ministerial sign-off

Redland City Council has submitted an amended draft Redland City Plan to the Queensland Government that addresses matters raised through a state interest review.

The details of the new City Plan review remain confidential until Deputy Premier and Minister for Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, the Hon Jackie Trad, agrees to its public release for consultation.

A key principle underlying the work done to date on the City Plan has been to reduce the complexity of the planning scheme and make it easier to understand and more user-friendly.

If approved by the Minister, the next step for the plan will be widely advertised public consultation including community forums, online information and activities, library displays, mail-outs to all residents, fact sheets, meet the planner sessions and meetings with key groups.

The public consultation on the City Plan and all residents are encouraged to have their say at that time.”

Providing a blueprint for the future development of the city over the next decade the plan will enable the city to manage and take advantage of economic and growth opportunities, while maintaining the distinctive character and lifestyle that makes us one of the most ecologically sustainable cities in Australia and a great place to live,” she said.
