Sunshine Cove

Development Proposal Update

 

Welcome to the Innovative Planning Solutions information and engagement portal for Sunshine Cove – Precincts 7 & 10 on behalf of the Chardan Development Group.

Dear Residents

Late last year we conducted initial community consultation sessions regarding the development proposal for the last stages of development at Sunshine Cove – Precincts 7 & 10.

We had expected the application to go to Council earlier this year, but it is now expected to be decided at the Sunshine Coast Council Ordinary Meeting on 15 October 2020.

UPDATE 15/10/2020: We are currently working through procedural issues with Council, so this matter will now be dealt with at a Sunshine Coast Council Ordinary Meeting later in the year. Further updates will be posted as information comes to hand. You can still lodge a submission of support at any time.

As a result of ongoing community engagement, changes have been made to the application currently before Council, primarily increasing the amount of open space to be provided within these precincts.

As you may be aware, under the masterplan the site has an existing approval for residential housing (including units) under an ‘As of Right’ application, meaning no community engagement is required.

We strongly believe that the current proposal delivers a far better outcome for community members by incorporating more open space and enhanced community benefit.

This table compares the proposed development currently before Council and the ‘As of Right’ code assessable development outcome which is also under assessment by Council.

Fast facts relating to current proposal:

  • The proposal is less dense (by 70 Dwellings) effectively reducing traffic congestion and street parking demand.
  • The area of open space provided within the development is significantly larger than is required by the existing master plan.
  • A greater area of urban forest can be consolidated to improve ecological value.
  • The relocated and revegetated Urban Forest Park resolves safety issues and maintenance management that would otherwise be handed to Council.
  • In addition to the Urban Forest Park, the proposal includes a new active and embellished play space of almost 1ha to complement the new open spaces – all developer funded.
  • The development offers different park embellishments to what already exists in Sunshine Cove, based on community feedback.
  • Offers a more liveable development design based on community feedback.
  • Additional infrastructure (amenity block at Bedarra Park, Sunshine Cove) provided by developer at no cost to Council or community. This would not be included as part of a code assessable development.
  • Despite being at an increased cost to the developer of approx. $2 million, and a lesser yield, it is important to the Chardan Development Group that these last stages of Sunshine Cove meet community expectation and leave a legacy of successful development as part of the award-winning Sunshine Cove.

The following labelled plans show our preferred ‘Current Proposed Development’ plan and the ‘As of Right’ Code Assessable application plan which have both been lodged with Council.

The following images show more detailed concept plans of the park infrastructure that can only be provided under the ‘Current Proposed Development’ plan.

Final deliverable park embellishments will be open for discussion and  determined as a result of future community consultation between residents and Sunshine Coast Council.

Should you require further information or wish to discuss any aspect of the proposal, please don’t hesitate to contact Sheree Lyons by telephone or email.
