New flooding temporary local planning instrument starts

Logan City Council has adopted a new temporary local planning instrument (TLPI) for flooding, reflecting the latest flood mapping in the draft Logan Planning Scheme.

Planning and Development Committee Chairperson, Councillor Cherie Dalley (Division 8), said Council was still awaiting approval from the State Government to adopt the new Planning Scheme.

"The new TLPI is an interim measure to ensure Council has appropriate planning controls in place to manage development from a flooding perspective and will be in place until the new planning scheme can be adopted and is implemented," she said.

Temporary Local Planning Instrument No. 1 (Logan Interim Flood Response) 2015 commenced on Friday 27 March 2015.

The new TLPI is also available at Council's customer service centres at Logan Central, Beenleigh and Jimboomba.

Sporting Hall of Fame guidelines adopted

Guidelines to assist in determining future inductees to the City of Logan's new Sporting Hall of Fame have been adopted by Logan City Council.

Individuals, teams and non-athletes such as sporting administrators, coaches and officials that make an outstanding contribution to sport will all be eligible for future consideration.

In addition to being a high achiever in their chosen sport, nominees must live, have lived or attend in school in Logan and demonstrate exemplary integrity, sportsmanship and character.

The Sporting Hall of Fame is the highest honour for sportspeople and sits alongside the Wall of Acclaim which recognises outstanding citizens. The initial inductees to the Hall of Fame are those on the Wall of Acclaim with a sporting background including Steven Bradbury, Jodie Henry and Cameron Smith.
