Springwood is one of four key activity centres (Meadowbrook, Springwood, Logan Central and Beenleigh) with each centre playing an important role that is complementary and integral to the success of Logan City.
Greater Springwood Master Plan
In October 2009, Council endorsed the Greater Springwood Master Plan, which will guide the future growth of Springwood to 2031. It addressed the development opportunities and challenges of the area, and respond to the requirements of the SEQ Regional Plan and community/stakeholder expectations.
The master plan proposes to physically transform the town's centre, including clear proposals for land use, building, public spaces, pedestrian and traffic movement, supported by a timeline and delivery strategy.
In summary, the Greater Springwood Masterplan aims to:
- Transform Springwood as the principal commercial centre in Logan integrated with the south east busway
- Create a vibrant community heart and new town squares, alfresco dining areas, cinemas, restaurants, art gallery/theatre, parks and open spaces
- Provide major upgrades to street lighting, boulevards, road function (traffic, cycle and transit facilities), water, sewer, broadband and energy supply
- Deliver higher residential densities close to transit

Logan City Council is committed to developing the potential of Springwood’s business centre as South-East Queensland’s next CBD.
In October 2016 the Springwood Summit was held where key government, industry, business owners and landowners collaborated to unlock the economic and placemaking potential for Springwood in South-East Queensland.
The Springwood Summit brought together experts in place design, infrastructure policy, urban innovation and development to share national and international perspectives on making Springwood a smart and liveable city. Together, the summit sought to answer three questions in co-creating a future Springwood.
- What are the key projects, ideas and initiatives for a future Springwood?
- What are the triggers to realising these projects and why haven’t they occurred?
- Creating a roadmap – who needs to invest?

Springwood Implementation Plan
Council approved the Springwood Implementation Plan on 17 October 2017.
Council has commenced its vision for the future of Springwood into action, committing $5 million for priority projects in the 2017/2018 Council budget. The Springwood Implementation Fund will be used to deliver on key priority projects identified from the Springwood Summit that aim to unlock the city-making and CBD potential of the Springwood activity centre.
Some of the Springwood Priority Projects to be delivered over the next two years include streetscape enhancements of key streets in the centre, new pedestrian and cycle connections between Carol Avenue and Laurinda Crescent and between Dennis Road and Carol Avenue, a shared pathway along the Slacks Creek Corridor and introducing free Wi-fi to key public spaces in the centre.
The balance of projects identified after the summit are included in the Springwood Implementation Plan. These projects will be rolled out on a medium to long term basis and will be prioritised through future community and stakeholder engagement.
