Part of a Gold Coast suburb is in lockdown as police negotiate with a man reportedly threatening to set a home alight.

Police were called to the home on Columbine Way, Gaven, following reports a man had been pouring petrol.

Police declared an emergency situation shortly before 5pm on Wednesday, with an exclusion zone encompassing the area bounded by Castlehill Drive, Banyula Drive, Dewberry Lane and Columbine Way.
