This website has been established to inform the community about planning investigations currently underway that will assist Council in determining the preferred future land use intents for the STPFGA.

Under the South East Queensland Regional Plan (ShapingSEQ), Council is required to investigate this area to determine its appropriate use, including its potential as a future employment area.

As outlined in the project timeline, Council recently completed an initial round of public consultation on the draft preferred future land use intents for the STPFGA. The consultation period ran from 28 September 2020 – 20 November 2020 and more than 200 submissions were received.

Officers are currently reviewing the submissions and will prepare a public submission report for consideration by Council in the New Year. In considering the matters raised in the public submissions, Council will determine whether any changes are required to the preferred future land use intents for the STPFGA and whether or not it intends to proceed with a major amendment to City Plan.

A further statutory phase of public consultation will occur if Council decides to proceed with a major amendment to City Plan. This can only occur after the proposed amendment has been approved by the Planning Minister following a State Interest Review process.
