Dunwich (Goompi) Master Plan

The Dunwich (Goompi) Master PlanThe Dunwich (Goompi) Master Plan is one of the 23 Queensland Government initiatives under the North Stradbroke Island Economic Transition Strategy which aim to diversify and expand the island's economy.

The master plan will seek to:

  • identify areas for future residential, commercial, community, environmental and industrial land uses
  • explore ways to better tell the Quandamooka story to visitors
  • identify necessary upgrades to infrastructure and services to improve liveability
  • acknowledge and respect cultural, social and environmental values
  • enhance the town’s role and appeal as a tourism-friendly destination and gateway to Minjerribah.

Developing the master plan

Stage 1 of the project involved a series of engagement events with community members and stakeholders, plus a survey to find out what the community like about Dunwich (Goompi), what they most value and what they'd like to see in the future. You can access the Stage 1 consultation report here.

During stage 2 feedback was sought on preliminary ideas and development scenarios for the area.

The community will also be given the opportunity to provide feedback on the draft master plan when it is released for community consultation in April 2019.

What's next?

The draft master plan is currently being developed based on feedback received during stage 2 of consultation. A draft is expected to be released for community consultation in April 2019.
