Gympie Regional Council has now adopted the new planning scheme for the whole of the Gympie Regional Council area. This new Gympie planning scheme will have force and effect from 1 July, 2013 and supersedes the 2005 planning schemes for the former Cooloola Shire area, the former Kilkivan Shire Area as well as the southern part of the former Tiaro Shire area.
The new 2013 Gympie Planning Scheme does provide new and longer term opportunities for the development of certain land in the Gympie Regional Council area. It is possible to request that Gympie Regional Council assesses development applications lodged between 1 July 2013 and 1 July 2014 under the then superseded planning schemes being for the former Cooloola, Kilkivan and Tiaro local government areas. It is recommended that intending applicants obtain professional town planning advice from a town planning consultant before deciding to lodge a development application with Gympie Regional Council.
Martoo Consulting is a local consultant with extensive local experience and knowledge and therefore in a great position to assist in providing such advice.
