Logan Centres & Projects

The City of Logan is home to a network of activity centres that each play an important role that is complementary and integral to the success of our growing city. Our major centres (Springwood, Logan Central, Meadowbrook and Beenleigh) are all strategically located in proximity to major transport infrastructure and present a growth corridor of state significance for development, employment and services.

Land use and development across the City of Logan is guided by the Logan Planning Scheme, with additional non-statutory projects informing planning considerations and development assessment on a case-by-case basis. The Logan Planning Scheme does not apply to the Priority Development Areas of Yarrabilba and Greater Flagstone, which are managed by the Queensland Government.
