Urban Design Framework

The Urban Design Frameworks should be used as a resource and guide when preparing development applications that are to be assessed against the Isaac Region Planning Scheme 2021.

Isaac Regional Council's Community Plan clearly identified town beautification and progressive economic development as priorities for the region. In response, Isaac Regional Council is rolling out Urban Design Frameworks for each of its towns with plans already developed for Clermont and Dysart.

The Frameworks reflect community aspirations and principals of good urban design to guide the development over the next decade and beyond. It facilitates the development of a more attractive, enriching and vibrant public realm to ultimately support enterprise and improve lifestyle and livability.

It is anticipated that new development in the towns of Clermont and Dysart shall be consistent with the Frameworks, Applicants preparing development applications for infill development should ensure their development complements and builds upon the public infrastructure being provided by Council.

Isaac Region Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy

The Isaac Region Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy is a long-term strategy to manage coastal changes and build our resilience to the coastal hazards of erosion, storm tide inundation and permanent sea level rise over the next 80 years.

A resilient future for the Isaac coast depends on the community and Council taking strategic actions now to identify the multi-generational impacts of coastal hazards on our valued places and assets, and development of management strategies that preserve these places and assets, and build community resilience.

Since 2019 Council has been working with the community and consultants, BMT and Ethos Urban to deliver this project under the Queensland Government’s QCoast2100 program. The project looks at coastal hazard risks between now and 2100 and resulted in the development of a Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy for the Isaac Region.

Coastal hazard mapping developed through this process was incorporated in the Isaac Regional Planning Scheme at the time of adoption.
