Interested parties are invited to make a written submission about the proposed amendment to the Northshore Hamilton PDA Development Scheme and draft DCOP via:

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.

Proposed development scheme amendment

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

EDQ has reviewed the development scheme to ensure it continues to operate effectively as the overarching planning document for the area.

A proposed development scheme amendment and a draft Development Charges and Offset Plan (DCOP) will be publicly notified from Friday 22 October until Friday 3 December 2021 (the submission period).

Information sessions

Community information sessions will be held for interested parties to learn more about the proposed development scheme amendment and the draft DCOP.

  • Online webinar for residents: 9 and 29 November, 6:00 pm-7:30 pm
  • Online webinar for local business: 11 November, 6:00 pm-7:30 pm
  • Public in-person information session: 20 November, 10 am-12pm at Public Works Professionals, Level 1, 6 Eagleview Place, Eagle Farm.

Due to COVID restrictions, you must register to attend a session.

The current Northshore Hamilton PDA Development Scheme 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.

Development assessment

EDQ assesses development applications for this PDA.

All development applications are assessed against the development scheme. EDQ will give a level of consideration to the proposed development scheme amendment when assessing and determining applications in the PDA.

Infrastructure

The Northshore Hamilton PDA Development Charges and Offset Plan (DCOP) accompanies the PDA development scheme. It identifies relevant development charges, how these charges are calculated, levied and administered, and the trunk infrastructure required to service the PDA.

You can also view the Northshore Hamilton PDA Infrastructure Plan Background Report (IPBR). The IPBR outlines technical details and desired standards of service for the infrastructure identified in the DCOP.
