Redland City Plan Amendments

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Redland City Plan is an important document that guides growth, land use and development in our city.

Council is committed to ensuring Redland City Plan remains consistent and relevant in response to changing legislation and community needs.

Maintaining the currency and relevance of Redland City Plan is achieved through an ongoing program of feedback, review and amendments as regulated by the Planning Act 2016.

Amendments may involve a change to a planning scheme map (for example a zone change), a change to the written part of the scheme, or both and, depending on the type of amendment proposed, each amendment will follow a process set by the State Government.

For more information on the different types of planning scheme amendments and the process involved please read the Amending the City Plan Fact Sheet.
