Strategic land use planning
The Cairns Style Design Guide has been developed to encourage builders and developers to embrace a "Cairns Style" that will enhance the tropical feel and charm of our city when designing new structures.
Under the Queensland Heritage Act, places are listed in the Cairns Regional Council Local Heritage Register. There are currently no places identified in Council's Local Heritage Register.
The CairnsPlan currently designates a number of character precincts and local heritage places across the City and surrounding suburbs.
Council has undertaken local heritage studies to identify, assess and document places of local heritage significance within the region.
