Emergent road repairs are being undertaken region-wide as applications through the Queensland Reconstructive Authority funding programs.

There are several factors affecting roads including saturated pavement therefore surface failures such as potholes are appearing even during dry weather. To ensure that any new or damaged repairs can be added to the maintenance program keep reporting any issues to Council.

Planning Scheme

Gympie Regional Council is reviewing the Planning Scheme which is a 20-25 year master plan for managing growth and change in the region. It is the go-to document for the community, the development industry, and all levels of government to help with their own planning activities.

Getting the vision right means the planning scheme will guide future development in line with community aspirations. Council is investing in community engagement to give all sectors of the community the opportunity to have a say.
