The Priority Development Area is proposed to be divided into five new places set to transform the area. Explore the vision for each of these places:
Mill Central will be home to the first full service university campus in the Moreton Bay Region and will provide a revitalised and active district centre for Petrie. The university will be supported and complemented by a vast range of uses and activities, including regional sporting facilities and health related opportunities.
Together, they will form an incubator for change and ignite new economic growth for the Moreton Bay Region by leveraging all it has to offer. Mill Central will become a highly attractive and vibrant destination, with a range of quality urban spaces hosting a mix of retail, commercial, residential, community and recreation uses, with a district centre to the west of the rail line and the neighbourhood hub to the east. Mill Central will be brought together by a highly embellished public realm that will include smart city technology, public art, and quality landscape treatment.
Mill Innovation is an area of opportunity that will be characterised by a key attractor(s) for the region that will stimulate regional economic growth and generate high employment for the region. Uses that have a direct nexus with the full service university campus to the south will be encouraged. Key attractor(s) will be supported by complimentary residential and non-residential activities.
Mill Transit will create a new transit oriented residential community and a neighbourhood hub which supports convenience retail and commercial uses focused around Kallangur Station. It will provide for medium to high density urban residential development north of Dohles Rocks Road and the continuation of existing light and general industrial activities south of Dohles Rocks Road.
Mill Urban establishes a new community comprising a mix of residential development and live work opportunities focused around high quality garden landscapes and streetscapes.
Mill Green will create an ecologically viable conservation area through the protection, restoration and management of areas of significant biodiversity and ecological integrity and demonstrate how brownfield rehabilitation can occur to support the ongoing viability of koalas. This will include the enhancement of koala habitat and wildlife corridors throughout the PDA and to areas outside the PDA, with a focus on the North Pine River and Yebri Creek.
Development will also allow for a limited range of complementary passive and active recreational opportunities as well as ancillary infrastructure and minor land use activities that are directly associated with the university and development within the PDA. Such activities must not affect the environmental significance of the local area and be demonstrated through detailed site specific design and location.
