Queensland Children's Hospital State Development Area

Declared in 2008, the 15.6-hectare Queensland Children's Hospital State Development Area (SDA) located adjacent to Brisbane's existing Mater Children's Hospital was established to facilitate the delivery of a hospital and associated infrastructure.

The Queensland Children's Hospital SDA provided for the development of the Queensland Children's Hospital, opened in 2014, the Centre for Children's Health Research, associated infrastructure and the continuation of the existing schools within the SDA.

Benefits of the Queensland Children's Hospital SDA

The Office of the Coordinator-General has worked closely with Brisbane City Council, the Department of Health's Children's Hospital project team, other State government agencies, the adjacent schools and the local community to coordinate development in a timely manner while managing and reducing significant impacts on the precinct during construction.

Land use rearrangements within the Queensland Children's Hospital SDA, facilitated by the Coordinator-General, resulted in greater efficiency in the use of land and provided for expansion of education facilities at Somerville House and St Laurence's College.

  • The Queensland Children's Hospital State Development Area Development scheme (PDF icon 178 KB) is a regulatory document that controls planning and development within the Queensland Children's Hospital SDA.

    The development scheme was approved by the Governor in Council in June 2008.

    The development scheme contains a development assessment framework for making, assessing and deciding applications and requests relating to development within the Queensland Children's Hospital SDA. The most common of these is an SDA application for a material change of use.

    The development scheme for the Queensland Children's Hospital SDA is supported by a public consultation policy (PDF icon 65 KB) that provides information on matters the Coordinator-General may consider when determining whether public consultation of an SDA application is required.

  • The Queensland Children's Hospital SDA regulation map (PDF icon 635 KB) defines the boundary of the declared Queensland Children's Hospital SDA.

    The Queensland Children's Hospital SDA precincts map (PDF icon 496 KB) identifies those parts of the SDA considered broadly suitable for various types of infrastructure development. The map forms part of the development scheme.
