    Master Plan for the Spit petition

    Tuesday, August 16, 2016

    Main Beach Association petition to the Queensland State Government regarding a Master Plan for The Spit.  

    The Spit provides a unique area that has the most varied recreational activities on the Gold Coast. These activities co-exist with tourists, high-class accommodation, quality shopping, dining, Sea World Theme Park, and marine orientated businesses.

    To protect this area for future generations we are asking the Queensland State Government to develop and implement a community driven Master Plan that will embrace the best of The Spit, as well as allowing for appropriate development and increased recreational tourist and recreational facilities together with a long term integrated traffic plan.
