Key details

The Oxley Priority Development Area (PDA) aims to deliver new homes and community facilities while retaining vegetation and open space.

The site is proposed to include a new residential community within a bushland setting, retirement or 'ageing-in-place' accommodation, community facilities and the relocated C&K Yuingi Child Care Centre from flood-prone land.

It covers approximately 19 hectares and is 11 kilometres southwest of the Brisbane CBD.

The PDA was declared on 10 August 2018.

An Interim Land Use Plan (ILUP) is now in effect.

The ILUP for the Oxley PDA provides a planning framework for development within the PDA until a development scheme is approved.

Once a PDA is declared under the Economic Development Act 2012, a development scheme for the PDA will be prepared. The development scheme will replace the ILUP within 12 months of the PDA being declared.

Note: Amendments to the Economic Development Act 2012 have changed the interpretation of PDA exempt and PDA self-assessable development. More information

Development scheme

A development scheme is the regulatory document that assists with planning, carrying out, promoting, coordinating and controlling land development within a PDA. 

Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) has prepared a proposed development scheme for the PDA. The proposed development scheme was publicly notified from 25 February 2019 to 5 April 2019. During the notification period, interested parties including the community, residents, and business operators were invited to view the proposed development scheme and make a written submission for consideration by the Minister for Economic Development Queensland (MEDQ).

The MEDQ will consider all submissions received and decide if any amendments will be made to finalise the Oxley PDA Proposed Development Scheme.

Development assessment

Economic Development Queensland assesses development applications for this PDA.

All development applications are assessed against the ILUP until the development scheme takes effect.


Funding and building infrastructure is key to facilitating development within PDAs and is outlined in the Infrastructure Funding Framework.
