With only days remaining for community input, Council has so far received close to 400 submissions regarding the draft New Noosa Plan.

Submissions cover issues from short term stay options to coastal hazards or proposed changes to the industrial precinct.

Director of Environment and Sustainable Development Kim Rawlings said the response had been encouraging, with the feedback to play a pivotal role in shaping the shire’s future growth.

“The extensive consultation process has really helped us better understand the community’s view on a range of planning scheme issues and how we can preserve the individual character of towns and localities,” she said.

Local accommodation providers support the Tourist Accommodation Zone, recognising established resorts, while many residents appreciated the quiet residential amenity of low density neighbourhoods.

Ms Rawlings said there were equally as many submissions opposing some of the suggested zones and proposed changes.

“That’s what community engagement is about and we have been really encouraged with the healthy discussions amongst the community,” she said.

Ms Rawlings said all submissions would be considered and each submitter would receive a written response from Council.

“This is a draft document, so council officers will now analyze every submission and consider further changes, in response to those submissions,” she said.

“Councillors would also consider the submissions and further changes are likely.”

This stage of the community input closes May 20 and residents and interested stakeholders are encouraged to make a submission before Monday.
