First look at plans for Caboolture West

Posted: 4pm 27 Jul 2022

Possible locations for neighbourhoods, parks, transport and priority infrastructure for Caboolture West have been revealed with today’s release of a draft Interim Structure Plan.

Deputy Premier, Minister for Planning and Murrumba MP Steven Miles says the release of the Interim Structure Plan will allow Moreton Bay Regional Council and state authorities to prioritise finalising a wave of development applications.

“Over the next 40 years Caboolture West will develop to be the size of a regional city, ultimately accommodating homes for around 70,000 people and access to 17,000 job opportunities,” Mr Miles says.

“There are already 16 major development applications in place, covering nearly half of the entire Caboolture West area.

Liveable community

“With more people moving to Queensland we are prioritising growth areas like Caboolture West to unlock land supply and make more residential lots available quicker.”

Mr Miles says the area will eventually be home to schools, environmental corridors, diverse and affordable housing, transport connections, four neighbourhood hubs and a local centre.

“We’re releasing an interim structure plan now so developers can get on with building and we can get on with the planning needed to turn this into one of the state’s most liveable communities over the next three decades.”

Morayfield MP Mark Ryan is encouraging people to have their say about the draft plan.

Planning infrastructure

A concept design for an integrated local centre and community hub.

“This plan gives the community an idea of how the initial stages of Caboolture West will be shaped into the future, including which areas are set aside for conservation, as infrastructure or for new urban development,” Mr Ryan says.

“Last month the Queensland Government committed $15 million from the new Growth Acceleration Fund to continue to deliver water and sewer infrastructure to support delivery of new homes in Caboolture West.

“Structure planning sets out the vision for how an area will transform and for the community and developers to understand the planning and development that will occur.”

The final structure plan will be a comprehensive land use and infrastructure blueprint guiding development in Caboolture West for the next 30 years.

The government intends the interim structure plan to be in place for about 18 months before it is replaced by the Final Caboolture West Structure Plan.

The interim plan will cover the area proposed for growth under existing major development applications.

Planning co-ordinated by the Growth Areas Team involved input from Moreton Bay Regional Council, Unitywater, the Department of Transport and Main Roads and Department of Education.

Community submissions about the interim structure plan close on August 26.
