say no to high rise on the coast



ALL SUNSHINE COAST COMMUNITIES ARE AT RISK FROM THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE COAST’S PLANNING SCHEME


The Mayor is supporting the building of high rise hotel and apartment towers on the beach at Yaroomba. To achieve the Mayor’s desire for high rise, Council is proposing to amend the Sunshine Coast planning scheme. In particular, to change the Strategic Framework, which is the part that:
“sets the policy direction for the planning scheme and forms the basis for ensuring that appropriate development occurs within the planning scheme area for the life of the planning scheme.”1
CHANGES TO THE STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK AFFECT EVERY CORNER OF THE SUNSHINE COAST.
We need to ensure that Council understands that the community does not want more high rise than is currently permitted in the SC Planning Scheme that came into effect in May 2014. [click here to find out more]

our goals

Prevent inappropriate development in the Coolum district
Monitor the planning and decision-making processes that affect our district to make sure that planning schemes and laws are being properly implemented.
Increase public awareness of important development issues that affect the long-term quality of life in our district.
Promote population growth management practices that will control the rate of growth in our district to acceptable levels.
Influence local economic development efforts towards local small businesses (rather than large out-of-town companies).
Work closely with our elected officials and Council staff to ensure the consequences of development proposals are accurately assessed.
Encourage greater public involvement in development issues by keeping our members and the general public informed about local government actions.
Encourage policies and planning practices that preserve or enhance the quality of life in the Coolum district for both residents and visitors.
