Sunshine Coast Council launches Development.i
The Sunshine Coast Council has launched a new online development information platform to allow residents and potential investors to track the projects proposed or planned in the region.
The Development.i platform has been developed with $150,000 in funding from the Queensland Government’s $4.5 million Innovation and Improvement Fund, which was announced in early 2017.
Using the platform, members of the community can search using filters, receive alerts, track the application status of a project and save searches. It has been designed to replace the council’s previous PD Online application tracking system.
“We are striving for the Sunshine Coast to be Australia’s most sustainable region — healthy, smart and creative — and Development.i ticks all three of those boxes in empowering people in our community to be informed,” Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said.
Queensland Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick added that the platform will also help increase the community’s understanding of the planning system.
“Sunshine Coast Council received $150,000 in funding from our government to help the platform come to life as part of round 1 of the Innovation and Improvement Fund. It is great to see how councils have been inspired to produce projects such as the Sunshine Coast’s Development.i that will help boost local economies and enhance quality of life for the community,” he said.
“Our government is committed to supporting councils and providing opportunities that will improve the overall performance of the planning system into the future.”
