The interactive mapping provides a tool for viewing some of the maps from the CairnsPlan 2016 Version 2.1. For a full list of the planning scheme maps please refer to Schedule 2 of the CairnsPlan 2016 v2.1 ( PDF, 0.08 MB ) and Schedule 3 of the CairnsPlan 2016 v2.1 ( PDF, 0.57 MB ).
If you proceed, you will be taken as agreeing to the following terms and conditions to that access.
- The interactive mapping does not replace the planning scheme maps published in PDF format on Council’s website. Where inconsistencies are found between the interactive mapping and the PDF maps, the PDF maps prevail to the extent of any inconsistency. In some cases, State mapping will prevail over the CairnsPlan 2016 mapping.
