Infrastructure planning and funding

Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) engages industry, state government agencies and local governments to plan and facilitate infrastructure for vibrant and connected communities.

EDQ plans and funds trunk infrastructure, implementation programs and early public transport services for Priority Development Areas (PDAs) such as new and upgraded transport, park, community facility land, water supply, sewer and stormwater infrastructure.

EDQ’s infrastructure charges policies set development charges for identified PDA infrastructure to ensure that new development fairly contributes towards the shared costs.

EDQ manages the Queensland Government’s Building Acceleration Fund (previously Catalyst Infrastructure Program), a co-investment program available to local governments, developers and utility providers to invest in infrastructure projects.

EDQ will administer the recently announced $150 million Catalyst Infrastructure Fund (CIF) which will provide low interest loans for accelerating the delivery of essential infrastructure within Priority Development Areas (PDAs ), particularly focussing on major new communities such as Ripley and Greater Flagstone.

The CIF is separate from the $50 million Growth Acceleration Fund (GAF) which is being administered by the Growth Areas Team.
