Northshore Hamilton PDA – Development Scheme Amendment

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Northshore Hamilton Priority Development Area (PDA) Development Scheme came into effect on 3 July 2009.

Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) has undertaken a review of the development scheme to ensure it continued to operate effectively as the overarching planning document for the PDA.

The scope of the review included examining:

  • the vision for the PDA to ensure it was contemporary and appropriate
  • land use and infrastructure planning to support the vision
  • development requirements in the development scheme to guide new development.

The review resulted in a proposed amendment to the development scheme and preparation of a draft Development Charges and Offset Plan (DCOP) that addresses the planning and funding of infrastructure required to service development in Northshore Hamilton.
