The Implementation of The Spit Master Plan Bill 2019 passed in Queensland Parliament, unlocking up to 1800 jobs for the Gold Coast.

The Implementation of The Spit Master Plan Bill 2019 supports the government’s plan – designed over 18 months in consultation with the Gold Coast community – to improve The Spit as a community asset for future generations, balancing open space with the release of commercial site opportunities.

The Bill will empower the Gold Coast Waterways Authority (GCWA) to deliver a series of capital works projects that will transform The Spit.

GCWA CEO Hal Morris said the passing of the Bill is an important milestone for the waterways city.

“Working closely with the Gold Coast community, the GCWA is excited to be delivering key public infrastructure projects set out in The Spit master plan,” Mr Morris said.

“The Spit master plan was created for the community, by the community, so we’ll keep everyone updated on our progress every step of the way.

Since the master plan was released, the Queensland Government has announced funding for three community infrastructure projects on The Spit, at Seaworld Drive, Moondarewa Spit and Seaway Promenade.
