Planning & Design Projects

Council undertakes planning and design projects to guide future growth and renewal of areas across Logan, and to inform future amendments of the Logan Planning Scheme. Information (listed by location) on projects in progress and completed can be accessed below.

Land use and development across the City of Logan is guided by the Logan Planning Scheme, with additional non-statutory planning and design 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.

Information about locality-based projects is provided below.  The following city-wide initiatives are also available:

Loganlea has convenient rail access to Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and is near the regionally significant hospital, TAFE and university in Meadowbrook. The area is expected to accommodate an ultimate population of approximately 5,700 people by 2031.   The neighbourhood plan includes proposals for future land uses, building heights, orientation and design, transport and pedestrian movement, infrastructure and parks.
