Key details

The Northshore Hamilton Priority Development Area (PDA) is a large urban renewal area that is being transformed into a vibrant, mixed-use precinct adjoining the Brisbane river and the suburb of Hamilton.

It covers 304 hectares, has over three kilometres of river frontage and is close to the Brisbane Airport and the Australian Trade Coast precinct.

The PDA was declared on 27 March 2008.

Development scheme

The development scheme is the regulatory document which assists with planning, carrying out, promoting, coordinating and controlling land development within the PDA. 

The Northshore Hamilton PDA Development Scheme (PDF icon 6.58 MB) came into effect on 3 July 2009.

Note: Amendments to the Economic Development Act 2012 have changed the interpretation of PDA exempt and PDA self-assessable development. More information

EDQ is reviewing the Development Scheme to ensure it continues to operate effectively as the overarching planning document for the area.

The review includes examining land use and infrastructure planning and the assessment criteria included in the development scheme, which guides new development.
