Building Applications

Gold Coast Airport is committed to a sustainable investment in our airport’s infrastructure. Our focus is to create significant regional development in Gold Coast Airport that benefits our visitors and our community.

Land use planning and building control at Gold Coast Airport is regulated by the Airports Act 1996 (Act). Regulations have been made pursuant to the Act, and the principal regulations dealing with the approval of “building activities” (as defined in s98 of the Act) are the Airports (Building Control) Regulations 1996 (Regulations).

Building activities are only to be carried out after approval has been obtained from the Airport Building Controller (ABC) for Gold Coast Airport. The Regulations set out the way in which applications are made for approval of building activities, as well as the matters the ABC considers before an approval is issued. In some cases, Gold Coast Airport Pty Ltd will be the applicant for building activities. However, where Gold Coast Airport is not the applicant for a building activity, the ABC cannot give its approval unless Gold Coast Airport has first given its consent to the proposed activities. The Regulations describe the activities the ABC must be satisfied about before it gives its consent, such as whether the proposed building activity is consistent with the Gold Coast Airport Master Plan.

Development Guidelines (pdf)

These development guidelines are prepared pursuant to Section 2.04(d) of the Airports (Building Control) Regulation 1996 and are intended to provide further information regarding Gold Coast Airports planning objectives for the airport.  The guidelines are applicable to both investors and stakeholders to assist in the management of the airport and ensure the growth in value of airport assets.
