The State Government identifies Narangba East as a Local Development Area for future urban development as part of the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2009-2031.
Council has prepared a comprehensive planning framework to guide the development of this area to ensure dwelling and employment targets envisaged for South East Queensland are achieved.
The preparation of this Strategy is one of Council's projects to manage the forecasted growth within the region, while reinforcing the principles, policies and outcomes sought by the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2009-2031.
The Narangba East Study Area is located towards the northern part of Moreton Bay Regional Council approximately 10 kilometres south of the Caboolture/Morayfield Principal Regional Activity Centre and about 35 kilometres to the north of the Brisbane Central Business District.
It comprises an area of approximately 800 hectares extending three kilometres east to west and four kilometres north to south.
It is almost wholly located between the main northern railway line to the west and the Bruce Highway to the east. The study area extends north to Pitt and New Settlement Roads and south to Boundary Road. The only part of the study area that extends to the west of the railway line is the existing commercial centre and adjacent residential areas near to the Narangba Railway Station.
The local area planning process has involved the development of:
- Structure Plan - to guide future infrastructure and planning development decisions
- Land Use and Infrastructure Strategies - to guide the implementation of the Structure Plan
- Implementation Plan - to support the implementation of the Strategy and achieve the vision for the area.
