The Weinam Creek Priority Development Area (PDA) is in Redland Bay and includes the Weinam Creek Marina, located at the intersection of Banana and Meissner Street.
The total area of the PDA is approximately 42 hectares, including 36 hectares over land and nearly 6 hectares over water.
The purpose of the PDA is to reinforce Weinam Creek as a community focus and a regional gateway to the Southern Moreton Bay Islands including Macleay, Lamb, Karragarra and Russell islands.
Development will include opportunities for mixed use and medium density residential dwellings.
The PDA was declared at the request of the Redland City Council on 21 June 2013.
The development scheme is the regulatory document which assists with planning, carrying out, promoting, coordinating and controlling land development within the PDA.
The Weinam Creek PDA Development Scheme commenced on 29 May 2014.
Note: Amendments to the Economic Development Act 2012 have changed the interpretation of PDA exempt and PDA self-assessable development. More information
Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) assesses development applications together with Redland City Council.
