Council has identified the following future expansion areas which are either recognised by the State Government in ShapingSEQ and planned for in the MBRC Planning Scheme, or are coming under pressure to be developed for further residential development.
Emerging Community Areas
Areas included in the Emerging community zone under the current MBRC Planning Scheme:
- Caboolture West
- Morayfield South
- Narangba East
- Burpengary East
- Joyner (South)
Areas identified as investigation areas in the Strategic Framework in the current MBRC Planning Scheme:
- Pine Valley
- Elimbah North
Areas identified for non-residential purposes in the current MBRC Planning Scheme, with landowner interest to change the land use to primarily residential:
- Elimbah East
- North East Business Park (Mixed Industry and Business Area (MIBA))
- North Harbour (Marina)
While the Regional Growth Management Strategy 2041 is being developed, Council recognises development applications will continue to be made. These applications will continue to be assessed against the planning scheme in effect at the time.
Council also acknowledges that there are other areas within the region which could attract developer interest for residential purposes. However these are not dealt with under this strategy.
While the strategy is being developed and as information becomes available, there may be a need for interim planning actions in some of the future expansion areas. For example:
- North Harbour (Marina): a Priority Development Area has been requested by Council.
- Caboolture West: Council has resolved to prepare a Planning Scheme Amendment for Caboolture West Neighbourhood Development Plan Area 1.
