Priority Development Areas (PDAs) are parcels of land within Queensland identified for development to deliver significant benefits to the community.

The Minister for Economic Development Queensland (MEDQ) may declare a PDA under the Economic Development Act 2012.

EDQ manages development projects in some PDAs. Projects may include, for example, town centre rejuvenation, industrial opportunities and residential estates in joint venture with local government and industry.

There are currently 32 declared Priority Areas.
