The Yarrabilba Land Use Structure Plan is a non-statutory document that shows Council's strategic direction for development within the Yarrabilba study area to 2051.

The centres-based approach encourages a self-contained development pattern through the creation of communities with a desirable mix of centre activities and dispersed local employment opportunities. It also supports the principles of transit orientated development.

In October 2010, an Urban Development Area (UDA) was declared over the Yarrabilba site. The Urban Land Development Authority (ULDA) became the planning authority for Yarrabilba and took over hte land use planning role for the area.

The Land Use Structure Plan developed by Council and formed the basis of our input into the ULDA's land use planning for Yarrabilba. In October 2011, the ULDA's Yarrabilba UDA Development Scheme was approved.
