Beenleigh Implementation Plan

The  Beenleigh Implementation Plan (PDF 13.5 MB) identifies and prioritises a number of place-based actions that contributes to delivering the vision for Beenleigh. Following the Beenleigh Summit several key initiatives and actions were endorsed by Council which informed the Beenleigh Implementation Plan (2019). The Implementation Plan has been updated to reflect projects delivered since 2019 and updates to the place-based actions for the next five-year period (2023 to 2028).

Completed projects

Big LED screen in the Beenleigh Town Square

We completed the installation of a 4 metre x 3 metre LED screen above the stage in the Town Square in November 2019. The interactive screen is regularly used for movie nights and community events.

Beenleigh Town Square Shade Solution

We have installed a unique shade canopy designed by local artists to provide more shade, colour and feature lighting. The Beenleigh Town Square Shade Solution was a joint initiative of Logan City Council and the Queensland Government. It also received an Australian Urban Design Commendation Award in 2022.

Beenleigh Town Square Activation Programme

This is an ongoing free community events programme run by a dedicated place activation officer. It includes the hosting of monthly movie nights and night markets. The programme also supports community led events such as the Wardrobe Rummage and the Beenleigh Cane Festival Parade.

Free Wi Fi in the Town Sqaure

Installation and commissioning of free Wi-Fi in the Beenleigh Town Square completed in 2019. The free Wi-Fi has improved visitation and duration of stay in the town square. In addition to the LED outdoor screen facilitates, this has improved visitor experience and the delivery of events and activities.

Beenleigh Streetscape Masterplan

The Beenleigh Streetscape Masterplan respects and builds upon the unique historical strip retail character of the centre. It aims to create a safe and enjoyable place for visitors and locals. It focusses on three core outcomes:

  • restore
  • reconnect
  • reinvigorate.

These three core outcomes will help improve amenity, economic vitality and social cohesion to the town centre over time.

Beenleigh Streetscape Upgrades

We have enhanced key streets and laneways in the town centre to improve public safety and access by:

  • wider footpaths
  • improved signage
  • more pedestrian crossings.

New seating and feature lighting has led to increased pedestrian activity both during the day and at night. This will support local businesses with more passing trade.

The Beenleigh Streetscape Upgrades were a joint initiative of Logan City Council and the Queensland Government. It also received an Australian Urban Design Commendation Award in 2022.

Smart Parking

Council installed parking sensors that give user-friendly real-time parking information. Motorists can locate vacant car spaces by using the parkspot app on their smart phones. The sensors give detailed data on parking occupancy and duration. This data will help guide future parking provision in the Town Centre.

Wayfinding and Signage

Council installed new signage to assist people to find their way around Beenleigh. The unique signage design includes a universally recognizable pictogram design for easy recognition by all community members. A unique signage suite has been designed and includes: directional finger signs, pedestrian information maps and digital parking signs which will be progressively installed across the town centre.

Beenleigh Centre Advisory Group

The Beenleigh Centre Advisory Group (BCAG) represented local residents, businesses, property owners, retailers and other stakeholders. Between December 2018 and November 2020 BCAG provided input and guidance to Council on the detailed design and delivery of the Beenleigh Implementation Fund Projects.
