About the PDA

The Toowoomba Railway Parklands Priority Development Area (PDA) was declared on 12 December 2014 at the request of Toowoomba Regional Council.

The PDA covers land centred on and around the Toowoomba Railyards which extends north to Bridge Street and south to Russell Street, and is bounded by Mort Street to the west and Ruthven–Neil Streets to the east.

The PDA is situated north of Toowoomba's Central Business District (CBD), within the city centre frame. It is focussed around a central parkland on an operational railyard site and Gowrie Creek, surrounded by a mixture of commercial, industrial, retail and residential land uses. It also incorporates a number of places of state and local heritage significance that are representative of the historical composition of land uses within the locality.

The Toowoomba Railway Parklands PDA covers an area of approximately 50 hectares.

Planning and development assessment in the Toowoomba Railway Parklands PDA is managed by Toowoomba Regional Council.
