Commercial Activities on Ocean Beaches

This consultation is now closed

City of Gold Coast is currently reviewing its approach to managing commercial activities on the city’s ocean beaches. This review was identified as an action in the Ocean Beaches Strategy 2013-2023, adopted by the Council in August 2013.

After considering the outcomes of the Ocean Beaches consultation, a management plan will be developed to manage commercial activities, which requires a framework to:

  • clarify how businesses operating on ocean beaches will be managed including establishing roles and responsibilities of managing commercial activities
  • clarify the processes for regulating commercial activities on ocean beaches
  • provide consistency of activities between bathing and foreshore reserves
  • ensure a balance between business and non-business use of beaches
  • ensure approval processes are commensurate with local law requirements
  • addresses the increasing commercial demands of our ocean beaches
  • ensure the health and safety for users of our ocean beaches
  • ensure the cleanliness and health of our ocean beaches; and
  • protect our ocean beach infrastructure and promote stewardship for the management of our ocean beaches.
