Declared on 25 July 2008 and located 12 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, the Fitzgibbon Priority Development Area (PDA) covers 295-hectares of land in the northern suburbs of Fitzgibbon, Carseldine, Bald Hills, Taigum and Deagon. The Fitzgibbon PDA is bounded by the Aspley School district to the south, Telegraph Road to the north, Gympie Road to the west and the Gateway Motorway to the east.
Due to the rarity of greenfield sites in close proximity to transport networks in Brisbane, the Fitzgibbon PDA is being developed into a residential community that includes significant areas bushland and open space.
The Fitzgibbon Chase residential development, which began in 2009, is almost complete. The Carseldine Urban Village renewal was announced on 9 October 2016, as part of the Queensland Government’s Advancing Our Cities and Regions Strategy. This renewal project is currently in its infancy. For further information on the Carseldine Urban Village visit Have your say.
Note: In February 2013 the Urban Land Development Act 2007 (ULDA Act) was repealed and replaced with the Economic Development Act 2012 (ED Act). From then on land areas identified for priority development were referred to as PDAs not UDAs and existing UDAs were transitioned under the ED Act. Any reference to the term UDA on this website is taken to mean a transitioned UDA. Economic Development Queensland has also replaced some of the functions of the former Urban Land Development Authority.
