Temporary Local Planning Instrument No.6 (Development in the Guragunbah flood plain area) 2018


On 28 August 2018, Council endorsed the withdrawal of Temporary Local Planning Instrument No.5 (Minimum Land Above Designated Flood Level and Residential Risk Reduction) 2017 and the preparation and submission of Temporary Local Planning Instrument No.6 (Development in the Guragunbah flood plain area) 2018.

The proposed TLPI No.6 will now be submitted to the Minister for State Development, Infrastructure, Manufacturing and Planning for approval.

City of Gold Coast has also sought approval for a commencement date of 28 August 2018. If approved by the Minister, Council will need to resolve to adopt TLPI No.6 to bring it into effect.

TLPI No.6 seeks to prevent the potential loss of the city’s flood resilience and enable the sustainable mitigation of flood hazard on flood prone land in the Guragunbah flood plain area.

TLPI No.6 will amend the operation of the Flood overlay code to ensure development in the Guragunbah flood plain area is not exposed to high to extreme flood hazard unless it is specified as suitable.

The Guragunbah flood plain is recognised as the largest urban flood plain in Australia. It is a unique natural asset recognised for providing significant open space and habitat of state and local significance.

TLPI No.6 will have a lifespan of two years from the commencement date and is intended to apply until City has formally amended the Flood overlay code in City Plan.
