The Gold Coast Waterways Authority was created in December 2012 by the Gold Coast Waterways Authority Act (2012) (the Act.) The Implementation of The Spit Master Plan Act 2020 introduced amendments to the Act which provide for GCWA to facilitate the implementation of The Spit Master Plan through the development and delivery of a program of community infrastructure and public realm works.

The Act requires the Authority to develop, for the Spit Development Minister’s approval, a program for the financial year and the following 3 financial years for community infrastructure and public realm works to be delivered in The Spit Master Plan area during the period (a Spit Works Program.)

Specifically the Program must include:

  1. details of the community infrastructure and public realm works to be delivered;
  2. a separate program for each item of community infrastructure and public realm works to be delivered;
  3. the performance targets to be achieved and
  4. an estimate of the cost of delivering the community infrastructure and public realm works.

For more information about individual projects being delivered under the program go to Spit Master Plan Implementation or contact Gold Coast Waterways Authority on 5539 7350.
