About Logan Plan 2025

Over the next 15 years Logan will be one of the fastest growing areas in South East Queensland.  By the year 2036, our current population of just over 340,000 is predicted to exceed 500,000. 

The Planning Scheme is Council’s ‘tool’ for managing this growth. It helps ensure Logan remains a highly desirable place to live and work, by:

  • guiding what can be built where, supporting jobs and providing housing choice 
  • planning the delivery of infrastructure (like roads, parks, water and community facilities) 
  • protecting what we value in our city, like our environment, safety and heritage.  

All councils are required to review their planning schemes within 10 years and decide whether to amend or replace them. Since Logan’s current planning scheme started in May 2015, there have been many changes affecting our city including:   

  • significant population and employment growth
  • changes in state policies that our planning scheme needs to align with
  • COVID-19 and we way we live and do business.

We now have an opportunity to prepare a new planning scheme to guide the way our city grows. Logan Plan 2025 will keep what’s working well from our current planning scheme and improve the parts that could be working better. It will focus on: 

  • managing growth in both the established and newer areas of our city
  • the design of our buildings, streets and landscapes, taking into account factors like sustainability and safety
  • providing diverse employment opportunities 
  • improving how we manage and respond to natural hazards like flooding 
  • protecting and enhancing our environmental values, like our green spaces, waterways and wildlife for future generations. 

Making a new planning scheme for Logan is a team effort that will take several years.  As work progresses, we will share information and ask for your input. If you’d like to go on our mailing list for updates, you can subscribe to our mailing list.

Shaping Logan's Growth

The preparation of Logan Plan 2025 is an exciting program of work.  It will include the implementation of key strategic and infrastructure planning projects to make sure we can coordinate and responsibly fund the delivery of important services (like water, roads, parks, etc.) to support our growing city.   These projects will be delivered in stages over the next three years:

  • Two new versions of the existing planning scheme (Logan Planning Scheme 2015), giving effect to several major amendments
  • Updates to the Local Government Infrastructure Plan and other infrastructure planning projects
  • A review of our infrastructure charging policy
  • Release of the Logan Housing Strategy and other strategic planning projects.
