About the strategy

A healthy environment and liveable Sunshine Coast for future generations.

The Environment and Liveability Strategy helps us manage change. The strategy provides long-term direction and allows us to guide growth and shape the future of our region.

Through our work, we’re striking a balance between the natural, the built environment and how we live in the environment. We’re also supporting a strong economy, with diverse communities. This is so we can maintain the liveability of the region, as it’s the foundation to our Sunshine Coast way of life.

The strategy consists of 3 parts:

Strategic directions (vision, guiding principles, policy positions) 2023 edition

Five-year implementation plan (transformational actions) 2023 edition

Network plan (technical detail and desired standards of service)

An overview of the strategy is available here (PDF, 706KB).
