About the review

The Northshore Hamilton PDA Development Scheme came into effect on 3 July 2009.

Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) has commenced a review of the Northshore Hamilton PDA Development Scheme to ensure it continues to operate effectively as the overarching planning document for the area.

The scope of the review includes examining:

  • land use and infrastructure planning, to ensure the vision for the PDA is contemporary and appropriate
  • assessment criteria included in the development scheme which guides new development.

The review may result in an amendment to the development scheme following consultation with the community and other stakeholders.

The review and development scheme amendment are planned to be completed in late 2016.

Stage 1 engagement

Community information sessions

During project Stage 1, EDQ hosted two community information sessions where stakeholders were able to drop in to meet and speak to EDQ representatives.

These sessions:

  • provided information to stakeholders and the general public about the development scheme review process
  • provided an opportunity for the community to share their views about future development of the PDA
  • ensured the community's views are understood and considered as part of the development scheme review.

Cruise shipOnline survey

During project Stage 1, EDQ conducted an online survey where stakeholders were able to provide their views on a range of topics including residential development, retail and entertainment development, commercial and business development, parks, community facilities and transport infrastructure.

Stakeholders were also able to supply information or photos about the Northshore Hamilton PDA to help explain the community's interest in this area.

What happens next?

EDQ will report back to the community the key issues that were raised during stage 1 consultations.

EDQ will develop a series of concepts and options for how to respond to and address various planning matters.
