Draft Livingstone Planning Scheme

Following on from the 16 December 2016 to 16 January 2017 notification period of the draft Livingstone Planning Scheme, submissions on the draft scheme have now closed. Council is currently undertaking the task of assessing all submissions received during the notification period. This process will require Council officers to go through every submission received, identify the key issues raised and make recommendations to Council.  Council will then submit a report to the State Government on all issues raised and proposed amendments to the draft Livingstone Planning Scheme.  

Should you have any further enquiries regarding the draft Livingstone Planning Scheme, please contact Council's Customer Service team on 1300 790 919 or enquiries@livingstone.qld.gov.au for further assistance.

The draft Livingstone Planning Scheme has now completed public consultation.

All submissions are now being reviewed for content and how various matters raised are to be treated.

Council received just short of 140 submissions, and dealt with over 300 customer requests during the 2 month consultation from 16 November 2016 to 16 January 2017. All submitters have now been sent a letter of acknowledgment.

Matters raised in submisisons are being summarised and each submitter will receive written notification of how their submission was treated. Submissions are considered as per the Queensland Government Statutory Guidelines 04/14 – Making and amending local planning instruments.

A summary report and Council's determination of submissions will also be published on Council's website. All submissions will be workshopped with Council in late February and early March 2017. Council is scheduled to make a resolution regarding submissions by mid-March 2017.

Notification of the commencement of the consultation period had been posted in The Morning Bulletin on 12 November 2016, and in the Capricorn Coast Mirror on 16 November 2016 to coincide with the commencement of the public consultation.

All persons who have elected to join Council's Planning Scheme Subscriber's list  were notified of the public notification period, and all persons with a substantive zone change were notified in writing.
