SC6.5 CBD redevelopment
The purpose of this planning scheme policy is to:
- Provide the guidelines for development within the Principal centre zone in achieving the outcomes within the Jumpstart our City Heart Urban Renewal Strategy.
This planning scheme policy applies to Development applications for a Material Change of Use or Reconfiguration of a Lot within the Principal centre zone.
In 2016, the Gladstone Regional Council adopted the Jumpstart our City Heart Urban Renewal Strategy, supported by the existing CBD Streetscape design manual with the vision to create a 'vibrant City Heart destination, playing and learning from its unique heritage to allow dynamic opportunities for residential living, active business uses, engaging entertainment and cultural activity for all'. The project included 8 guiding principles for transformation throughout 5 new precincts, and an implementation plan to support its renewal.
Where a Development application is lodged within the Principal centre zone, it is the expectation of Council that the site specific outcomes of the Jumpstart our City Heart Urban Renewal Strategy and CBD Streetscape design manual are met. In achieving compliance with these documents, compliance is also achieved with the relevant provisions of the Principal centre zone code.
SC6.5.4 Delivery of works

Works are to include:
- Street furniture (litter bins, drink fountains, bike hoops, seats, signage and ash receptacles);
