Key details

The Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area (PDA) is located between two future employment precincts at North Maclean and Bromelton.

It is expected to provide approximately 50,000 dwellings to house a population of up to 120,000 people.

The PDA covers 7188 hectares and is located west of the Jimboomba and Mount Lindsay Highway, along the Brisbane-Sydney rail line.

Full development of the Greater Flagstone PDA is expected to take 30-40 years.

The PDA was declared on 8 October 2010.

Development scheme

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

The Greater Flagstone PDA Development Scheme (PDF icon 2.54 MB) commenced on 8 October 2011.

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

Development assessment

Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) assesses development applications for this PDA.

All development applications within the PDA are assessed against the development scheme.

Endorsed context plans

Refer to the Greater Flagstone PDA Development Scheme for the statutory requirements of a context plan. Refer to Practice note no. 9 - Context plans (PDF icon 957 KB) for further detail on preparing a context plan.

Infrastructure

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

The Greater Flagstone PDA Infrastructure Charging Offset Plan (ICOP) (PDF icon 1.79 MB) provides details of the infrastructure charges for the PDA and the infrastructure items that may be offset against these charges. It includes ICOP maps (PDF icon 16 MB) and plans of the relevant infrastructure networks.

The ICOP is supported by a cost schedule (PDF icon 943 KB) which outlines the trunk infrastructure requirements to service the demand generated from the PDA.

Use our online form to claim a provisional or final infrastructure offset. Please refer to the application checklist before completing the form.

The Greater Flagstone PDA ICOP will be in effect until EDQ completes a program of work to review all strategic trunk infrastructure asset planning and costs in the Greater Flagstone PDA. The review will inform the future Development Charges and Offset Plan (DCOP). The DCOP will replace the ICOP once completed.

The ICOP was publicly notified from 9 October 2019 to 5 November 2019.
