Yaroomba Beach development approval cancelled

Residents now have greater clarity around what will be delivered on the Yaroomba Beach development site formerly owned by Sekisui House.

Sunshine Coast Council has received – and granted – a request by the new owners to cancel the  development approval issued to Sekisui House.

Under the Planning Act 2016, this means that development approval  no longer has effect and cannot be acted upon.

The site will revert to being governed by the Coolum Hyatt Integrated Resort and Residential Community (Hyatt Masterplan).

The Hyatt Masterplan allows for 330 dwellings onsite with a range of 2-4 storey buildings, up to a maximum height of 16 metres.

In comparison, the Sekisui approval allowed for 817 dwellings up to 7 storeys, or 24.5 metres.

Division 8 Councillor Taylor Bunnag said the approval was no longer in effect and local residents now had greater clarity around what would be delivered on the site. 

“The cancellation of the Sekisui approval represents a significant day for the Yaroomba community because it ends a seven-year process of uncertainty surrounding this particular site,” Cr Bunnag said.

“This is an important moment in time for local people who for many years fought hard to have their voices heard on what the future of their community looked like, and I would like to acknowledge the efforts of everyone involved.”

Mayor Rosanna Natoli said the cancellation of the development approval issued to Sekisui House marked the end of a lengthy process that had attracted significant community interest.

“As Mayor, listening to and appreciating the ongoing community expectations around planning not just in Yaroomba, but across the Sunshine Coast, is important to me,” Mayor Natoli said.
