A new online development information platform has today been launched by the Sunshine Coast Council with funding from the Palaszczuk Government’s Innovation and Improvement Fund.

Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said ‘Development.i’ was a great example of how local government is going above and beyond to make planning accessible to all Queenslanders.

“Development.i will allow the community to easily see what development projects are happening near them in just a few clicks,” he said.

“This innovative new system not only informs the community about planning and development around them, but also helps increase the community’s understanding of the planning system.

“Sunshine Coast Council received $150,000 in funding from our government to help the platform come to life as part of round 1 of the Innovation and Improvement Fund.

“It is great to see how councils have been inspired to produce projects such as the Sunshine Coast’s Development.i that will help boost local economies and enhance quality of life for the community.

“Our government is committed to supporting councils and providing opportunities that will improve the overall performance of the planning system into the future.”

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor, Mark Jamieson, said Development.i was a simple, yet powerful information tool that is a perfect demonstration of council’s vision for the region in action.

“We are striving for the Sunshine Coast to be Australia’s most sustainable region - healthy, smart, and creative - and Development.i ticks all three of those boxes in empowering people in our community to be informed,” Cr Jamieson said.

“Development.i will enable people across our community – from individual residents to potential investors - to know what development is proposed or planned in our region.”  

“The system replaces council’s previous PD Online application tracking system with a simple to use system, where users can easily change filters, save searches, receive alerts, track application status and much more.”
