- height and density – to create a sustainable city shape
- built form and urban design – highlighting the importance of a well-designed city

- growth and diversification of employment – to stimulate economic growth and enable future job creation
- environment – to safeguard our environmental values
- other land use changes and alignment improvements – for clarity, consistency and alignment.
Mayor Tom Tate said the City Plan was guided by the Queensland Government’s Shaping SEQ, which sets regional growth projections the city needs to accommodate to 2041.
“The Gold Coast continues to grow at one of the fastest rates in Australia,” he said.
“We’re committed to a journey of continual improvements to manage the city’s growth responsibly while maintaining our enviable lifestyle.
“I encourage all those who care about our city’s future and in protecting their lifestyle to take this opportunity to have their say.”
“We want everyone to have their say and will be running a number of ‘talk-to-a-planner’ sessions across the Gold Coast so the community can ask questions and provide their feedback.”
