The new Noosa Plan is the draft planning scheme that will replace the current Noosa Plan 2006.

The Draft was released earlier this year and Council received nearly 1000 submissions on the draft Noosa Plan. Thank you to all of you who contributed so far to this process. All submissions have been reviewed and many have resulted in proposed changes to the Plan, we are now consulting on the changes that are considered significant and warrant further consultation and input from the community and stakeholders.

Importantly, changes impacting the Business Community are mainly in two areas:

Short term accommodation 

There ahev been some change to the proposals regarding short term accommodation in teh new Noosa Plan, including the introduction of a local law. Read the Media Release and view this video of Tony Wellington explaining some of the significant changes to short stay accommodation.
