Greater housing diversity and a new Maroochydore CBD will be accommodated in the Maroochydore City Centre Priority Development Area after the state government approved changes to the PDA’s development scheme.

Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said the revised scheme will help accommodate predicted population growth in the Sunshine Coast region.

“According to ShapingSEQ, our South East Queensland Regional Plan, an additional 53,700 dwellings will be needed within Sunshine Coast urban areas by 2041,” Mr Dick said.

“Maroochydore is ideally placed to deliver more apartment living options for the region, and these changes will enable the city centre to grow and thrive.

“The recent announcement by Pro-invest to seek approval for a 167-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites demonstrates the attractiveness of Maroochydore City Centre.”

“It’s exciting to see more investors taking a serious interest in development in this flourishing part of Queensland.”

Maximum building heights have been increased in some areas to accommodate additional growth.

Development will also need to meet various design requirements relating to things like residential privacy and access to natural light.

Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson said the approval will help council meet urban infill targets set under the SEQ regional plan and capitalise on new opportunities.

“The increase in residential dwellings from 2000 to 4000 apartments would help our region cater for forecast population growth over the next 20 years,” Mr Jamieson said.

“It will also assist us in pursuing an important objective of locating our region’s growth in areas connected to facilities, services, transport networks and key employment areas.

“Maroochydore City Centre is ideally placed to accommodate some of this forecast growth, so it’s only appropriate it plays its part.

“Momentum and awareness of our new city centre is continuing to grow, and this is a major project that will help shape the Sunshine Coast as Australia’s leading healthy, smart and creative region.”

The proposed Maroochydore City Centre PDA Development Scheme Amendment No. 2 was publicly notified from 23 November 2018 to 14 January 2019.

Forty-five submissions were received, and after considering the feedback, with specialist advice, refinements were made to the development scheme to reflect community views.
