Loganholme Neighbourhood Plan
The Loganholme Neighbourhood Plan was endorsed by Council on 28 May 2013 for the purpose of informing an amendment to Council's new planning scheme: the Logan Planning Scheme 2015, which commenced on 18 May 2015 and is now in use in the City of Logan.
The revised Logan Planning Scheme 2015 Loganholme Local Plan Amendment (the revised Amendment) incorporates the proposed changes made to the draft Amendment following public consultation (held 29 June 2015 - 7 August 2015). Key dates for the progress of the revised Amendment are:
- 7 October 2015 - the revised Amendment was formally endorsed by Council and submitted to the State Government for approval.
- 3 December 2015 - the Deputy Premier, the Hon Jackie Trad MP, approved the Amendment to the Logan Planning Scheme 2015, in accordance with Statutory Guideline 04/14 - Making and amendment local planning instruments (MALPI).
- 11 December 2015 - Logan Planning Scheme 2015 V2.0 (incorporating the revised Amendment) commenced.
Council's planning officers can provide assistance in relation to understanding the revised Amendment and how it may apply to a particular property. Please contact a planner.

Key changes include:
- Expressing maximum building heights in 'storeys' in addition to 'metres';
- An increase in density for properties on Timor Avenue, previously in the Large lot precinct, to be consistent with the densities on the northern side of Timor Avenue;
- The inclusion of six properties along Bryants Road into the adjoining Bryants Road Local Centre Precinct;
- Rationalising the reconfiguring a lot provisions to include the relevant matters in the Reconfiguring a Lot Code;
- Refinements to the boundary of the local plan area, to reflect existing approvals;
- Clarification of provisions regarding stormwater easements, that were not reflected in the public consultation version of the draft Amendment, and the inclusion of waterway mapping to provide further guidance regarding stormwater management; and
- A range of refinements to ensure consistency with the Logan Planning Scheme 2015.

Additional technical studies
Since the Plan was endorsed in May 2013, Council commissioned further transport and stormwater studies to guide the detailed development of the area and to inform the Amendment. These studies provide further guidance regarding future transport and stormwater requirements for the area as it develops.
The transport study provides guidance on:
- Future road and intersection requirements to accommodate growth in the area
- The best methods to manage traffic and parking in the area
- Pedestrian and vehicular connectivity within and to key locations outside the area
An addendum to the transport study has considered the implications of proposed changes to provide business opportunities in the Osborne Court area.
The stormwater study provides guidance on the optimal method to manage stormwater within the area as it develops.
