Inskip Peninsula draft master plan consultation

Closed 9 May 2014

Opened 29 Mar 2014

Overview

The Queensland Government is working to establish a master plan for Inskip Peninsula to promote well-designed and sustainable tourism opportunities that are sympathetic to existing residents, business and the natural values of the area.

The Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning is committed to identifying economic development opportunities that protect the area's unique environmental values while ensuring adequate infrastructure is delivered to support development. It is currently seeking feedback on two master plan options for the peninsula.

The objectives of the master plan include:

  • providing for tourism development and contributing to the four pillar policy of the Queensland Government
  • responding to the findings of the Planning and Environment Court's consideration of the Rainbow Shores Stage 2 development proposal
  • balancing the protection of the peninsula's environmental values with development
  • improving public access to the coastal foreshores
  • consolidating development and maximising the use of existing infrastructure such as sewer, road and power infrastructure.


You can have your say on the master plan options from 29 March–9 May 2014. The Queensland Government will consider all submissions before finalising the master plan later in 2014.
