Whitsunday Regional Council has confirmed that its draft Planning Scheme will be amended to include revised building heights in certain parts of Airlie Beach, before being taken back out to public consultation for 30 business days.
Acting Chief Executive Officer Barry Omundson said Council’s Planning and Community Department would prepare a new communications and engagement plan to drive the next stage of public consultation.
“The Planning Scheme is clearly a significant document and we’re committed to getting it right, so we certainly won’t be rushing this process,” Mr Omundson said.
“After our Planning and Community Department makes the necessary amendments to the draft Planning Scheme, we will consult again with the Queensland Government and gain their approval before recommencing the public consultation process,” he said.
“After engaging in further conversation with our community and addressing any concerns the public may have, the draft Planning Scheme will be brought back to Council for its consideration.”
The draft Whitsunday Regional Council Planning Scheme can be viewed online.
