SCU MAJOR DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Southern Cross University Building C and at Grade Car Park, Gold Coast Campus, (Undeveloped Portion) Bilinga, Queensland

This Major Development Plan has been developed in consultation between Gold Coast Airport Pty Ltd (GCAPL) and Southern Cross University (SCU). As the Airport Leasing Company, GCAPL is the proponent for the Major Development Plan. The Major Development plan has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Airports Act 1996 (Cth).

The draft Major Development Plan was approved by the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development, the Hon Warren Truss MP on 28 July 2015, following extensive consultation with the community and other key stakeholders. The draft has since been finalised, in consultation with the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development, and is now available as a final Major Development Plan.

Changes to the preliminary draft Major Development Plan, arising from written comments received during the 60 day public comment period (August 2014 – November 2014) have been incorporated into the final Major Development Plan. The key changes that have occurred are within the following sections of the document:

  • 1.5.1 State Planning Legislation
  • 3.1 Proposed Development – Figure 3.1
  • 4.46 Parking
  • 4.5 Pedestrian and Cycle Ways
  • 4.7.1 Public Transport
  • 4.7.1 Public Transport Accessibility – new Figure 4.4
  • 6.1.2.2 Groundwater, Surface Water Quality and Hydrology

The final Major Development Plan details how SCU is proposing to construct Building C and an at-grade car park for 505 car spaces within the Gold Coast Airport grounds. The Campus already consists of two buildings, namely Building A and Building B. The proposed Building C is a six (6) storey building. This building will accommodate SCU College Headquarters, a lecture theatre, the Learning Centre/Personalised Learning Environment space, general purpose learning rooms, offices and presentation areas.
