The Yeronga Priority Development Area (PDA) was declared on 10 August 2018. The PDA is approximately three hectares and includes parts of Villa Street and Park Road. The site is located near an arterial road network and rail and bus services.
The site has been identified as a potential key urban renewal opportunity under the state government’s Advancing our cities and regions (AOCR) strategy.
Declaration of the Yeronga PDA establishes an overarching planning framework that will support the future economic and community outcomes in the area. The PDA provides opportunities to deliver new residential community with a range of other uses such as small-scale retail and a new community centre for Yeronga.
Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is responsible for planning and development assessment within the PDA.
Yeronga PDA Proposed Development Scheme and public notification
Public notification of the proposed development scheme for the Yeronga PDA was held from 1 April to 17 May 2019.
During the submission period, all interested parties including the community, residents, and business operators were invited to view the proposed development scheme and make a written submission for consideration by the Minister for Economic Development Queensland (MEDQ).
The MEDQ will consider all submissions received within the submission period and decide what amendments, if any, may be made to finalise the Yeronga PDA Development Scheme.
Interim Land Use Plan
The Economic Development Act 2012 provides for a streamlined planning and development framework for PDAs to facilitate economic development, and development for community purposes.
Once a PDA is declared under the Economic Development Act 2012, a development scheme for the PDA must be prepared.
Until the development scheme is finalised, development within the PDA will be regulated under the Interim Land Use Plan (ILUP).
EDQ has engaged with the Yeronga community since August 2017 including a number of community information sessions at Yeronga State High School.
