03/21 - Major Amendment – Minjerribah (Site-specific land uses)

Redland City Council recently undertook a six-week public consultation - from 31 May to 11 July 2022 - on a series of City Plan amendments on Minjerribah/North Stradbroke Island.

The proposed planning scheme amendments are a direction from the State Government to support the aspirations of the Quandamooka People on Minjerribah.

Council is progressing the amendment on the State Government's behalf and recognises it will provide important social, cultural, housing and economic opportunities for the Quandamooka People on Quandamooka Country.

The consultation follows a Ministerial direction to amend the city's planning scheme to reflect the Temporary Local Planning Instrument - Quandamooka Land Aspirations Area, which the State established in 2020.

The proposed planning scheme amendments seek to rezone approximately 25 lots, covering approximately 249 hectares of land at Dunwich (Gumpi), Amity (Pulan Pulan) and Point Lookout (Mulumba) on Minjerribah/North Stradbroke Island from primarily environment and conservation zoning to a mixture of new urban zones.

The proposed future uses could include low-density residential, tourist accommodation, community facilities, emerging community, local and neighbourhood centres, low and medium impact industry, waterfront and marine industry, recreation and open space.

In accordance with the proposed amendment, most types of future development on the rezoned land parcels will require development applications to be assessed and decided by Council.

With the public consultation period concluding on 11 July, Council will now review all properly made submissions and prepare a consultation report that summarises the issues raised.

When the report is finalised, Council will notify all persons who made a properly made submission.

    Joint Redland City Council and Queensland Government Media Release

    A six-week public consultation period will begin this month on a series of City Plan amendments on Minjerribah/North Stradbroke Island.

    Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said Council had this week agreed to undertake public consultation, with assistance from the State Government on the amendment package that reflects a Temporary Local Planning Instrument introduced in September 2020 to support the land aspirations of the Quandamooka People.

    “Following this week’s decision Council is partnering with the State Government to make the proposed amendments available through our website and we are encouraging the community to have their say during the consultation period from 31 May to 11 July 2022,” Cr Williams said.

    “The amendment includes the proposed rezoning of 25 land parcels with potential uses including low-density residential, tourist accommodation, community facilities, emerging community, local and neighbourhood centres, medium impact industry, waterfront and marine industry, recreation and open space.

    “Council is progressing the amendment in partnership with the State Government and recognises its potential to provide important social, cultural and economic opportunities for the Quandamooka People on Quandamooka Country.

    “Minjerribah is still going through an important transition following the end of sand mining and I would encourage anyone with an interest in the island to look carefully at these proposed amendments and provide their feedback.

    “Following public consultation, Council will provide a report to the Minister who will make the final decision on the proposed amendments.”

    Deputy Premier and Minister for Planning Steven Miles encouraged the community to have their say on the proposed amendment.

    “The amendment aims to provide residential, cultural and business development opportunities on Minjerribah, while ensuring future development has regard for hazards including bushfires,” Mr Miles said.

    “Reflecting the TLPI into the planning scheme on a permanent basis is important for the future of Minjerribah.

    “I congratulate Redland City Council on their work on these proposed amendments.”

    Division 2 Councillor for Minjerribah, Cr Peter Mitchell said Council was working cooperatively with the State Government to progress the planning scheme amendments which would give effect to development opportunities on Minjerribah identified by the State Government.

    “This is about walking forward together as a community and for that to occur we need the community to be part of the conversation,” Cr Mitchell said.

    “I would encourage everyone to look carefully at these proposed amendments and the supporting information and provide a submission.”
