Redland City Council has thanked the Redlands Coast community for their participation in the latest consultation into the delivery of Birkdale Community Precinct.
At its general meeting today[13 September 2023], Council endorsed the summary report on the consultation phase of the precinct’s Local Government Infrastructure Designation (LGID), and thanked those who made submissions.
Public consultation was held from 21 April to 22 May, 2023, with 2300 active visits recorded during that period to the dedicated Birkdale Community Precinct Your Say webpage.
Mayor Karen Williams said a total of 172 submissions on the LGID were received, of which 92 were proforma submissions.
In endorsing the Birkdale Community Precinct LGID Consultation Summary Report and its submissions, Council noted that officers would continue to progress amendments to the LGID based on the report, Cr Williams said.
“The submissions will help shape the detail in the precinct’s LGID which is the statutory planning process required to deliver this amazing intergenerational project on 62 hectares in Birkdale,” she said.
“The Birkdale Community Precinct LGID will ensure that precinct-wide land use and activity rights have been established in accordance with the conceptual spatial layout and design principles to reflect the values and aspirations of our community and stakeholders that are incorporated in the Master Plan.”
The Birkdale Community Precinct Master Plan was adopted by Council at its general meeting on 15 March 2023.
