Planning scheme on council website ahead of meetings

THE Fraser Coast Planning Scheme is now available on the council's website.

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell encouraged people to view it ahead of information nights to be held in late February.

The Mayor said events were now being planned to help those in the development and associated industries understand the scheme.

"What we will be doing towards the end of next month is holding some workshops and forums to launch it," Cr O'Connell said.

"That will allow for some really good education and an introduction for all those involved in the industry.

"So that's the development industry, it's the real estate industry, the valuers etc."

Cr O'Connell said there would be further announcements about those events in coming weeks.

However, he said there would be information on infrastructure charge incentives that will be offered for particular developments.

The Mayor said the council had spent the few months ahead of its adoption working with the State Government to make the scheme as simple as possible.
