We have a unique opportunity to capitalise on major developments and events in the next decade to create a thriving inner-city suburb. Given this opportunity, the previous Woolloongabba Cross River Rail PDA has been revoked, and a new, larger Woolloongabba PDA has been declared. The Woolloongabba PDA comprises an area of approximately 106 hectares, covering more of Woolloongabba, as well as parts of Kangaroo Point, East Brisbane, South Bank and the Stanley Street precinct.
The Woolloongabba PDA was declared on 22 September 2023 and the Woolloongabba PDA Interim Land Use Plan ( 16.8 MB) came into effect.
The new, larger PDA will see the redeveloped Gabba Stadium, Cross River Rail and the Brisbane Metro connected to South Bank and Brisbane CBD via a walkable, active travel corridor to South Bank and Brisbane City Council’s new green bridge.
The new, larger PDA enables a more integrated and coordinated planning approach for the whole suburb, including connectivity to nearby precincts. The PDA will build on current development happening in the area, facilitating sustainable interconnected neighbourhoods close to public transport, open space and supporting services and conveniences.
Woolloongabba PDA Interim Land Use Plan
The Woolloongabba PDA Interim Land Use Plan ( 16.8 MB) is a temporary planning document which regulates development within a PDA in an interim capacity until a PDA development scheme is finalised.
The Woolloongabba PDA Interim Land Use Plan came into effect on 22 September 2023 for a period of 12 months unless the development scheme for the PDA is finalised earlier.
The interim land use plan has been prepared to provide an interim planning and development framework for the Woolloongabba PDA whilst detailed planning and community engagement is completed as part of the development scheme preparation process.
Existing development approvals are not impacted by the declaration of a PDA. Development applications lodged with Brisbane City Council prior to the declaration of the PDA will continue to be assessed by Brisbane City Council under its planning and assessment framework.
