Planning our Future

A new planning scheme for Gympie region

Gympie Regional Council is in the early stages of reviewing its planning scheme.

The planning scheme is our region’s 20-25 year master plan that strives to:

Timeline small

  • ensure there is enough land for different types of development in different areas across the region
  • maximise our region’s liveability in terms of green spaces, community facilities and places to work and shop
  • plan for future infrastructure needs to support growth within the region
  • protect our natural environment and historical features
  • make our communities more resilient against natural disasters.

Once endorsed, a planning scheme is the framework against which development applications are assessed … so getting it right is important.

We want to hear from you to ensure the new planning scheme reflects the needs and aspirations of our community, and will seek more detailed feedback from our community in late 2022.
