Our City Our Plan

Consultation has concluded

We are inviting you to have your say and help shape the future of the Gold Coast.

The Gold Coast is Australia’s fastest growing non-capital city. To protect our iconic skyline, world heritage-listed rainforests and enviable lifestyle, we are committed to managing this growth responsibly.

That is why we are proposing 34 amendments to the City Plan. These amendments respond to previous feedback and aim to promote the right type of growth, in the right location, at the right time and supported by the right type of infrastructure.

To have your say on the proposed changes to City Plan, properly made submissions must be made during our public consultation period from 8am 27 September 2019 to 5pm 11 November 2019.

If you are having trouble making a submission please call the City Plan hotline number 1300 151 267 for assistance.
