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.
Caboolture West Growth Area
In addition to preparing the RGMS2041, council will recommence land use and infrastructure planning for Caboolture West. The planning for Caboolture West will run in parallel and independent of the RGMS2041. This decision reflects the level of planning undertaken to date in Caboolture West and the significance of the area as reflected in the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2017 (ShapingSEQ) and the MBRC Planning Scheme 2016.
