Strategic infrastructure planning

Council has developed strategies for open space, community infrastructure, transport, water and the environment, to inform the new Moreton Bay Regional Council Planning Scheme, Priority Infrastructure Plan and capital works program.

Each strategy contains:

  1. Council's vision and strategic direction;
  2. Opportunities to respond to user needs; and
  3. A framework for delivery.

Supporting plans and background papers have also been prepared to outline the detailed planning and catchment analysis undertaken to prepare the strategies and determine future infrastructure recommendations.


The suite of strategies:

 Transport

Integrated Local Transport Strategy 2012-2031

Integrated Local Transport Strategy 2012-2031

The Integrated Local Transport Strategy is Council's blueprint for the delivery of transport initiatives addressing all forms of transport.

The Strategy considers transport as a single network that supports land use initiatives, particularly the creation of places and meeting the needs of our communities. It integrates various aspects of the transport network – travel demand management, active transport, public transport, networks and corridors and freight.

Travel Demand Management Strategy 2012-2031

Travel Demand Management Strategy 2012-2031

The Travel Demand Management Strategy is about providing transport choices and making land use decisions that help people reduce the impacts of their travel. The Strategy will guide the planning and delivery of the region's travel demand management initiatives for the next 20 years.

It is estimated that over 30% of the people living in the Moreton Bay Region do not have access to a car. Improving transport choice such as walking, cycling and public transport can significantly reduce demand on road infrastructure and provide access to employment and services for a large part of our community.

Public Transport Strategy 2012-2031

Public Transport Strategy 2012-2031 - Strategic Vision

The Public Transport Strategy - Strategic Vision provides the vision for the Moreton Bay Region's public transport network. The remainder of the Strategy will be available when finalised. The Strategy aligns Council's vision for public transport with local investment, and seeks to complement State Government investment in public transport to the benefit of the Moreton Bay community.

Local residents, business people and visitors to the region need convenient transport options that are affordable and reliable. The Strategy considers it is in Council's interest to ensure local residents, visitors and workers in the region are best served by public transport. Public transport is a choice for some, but a necessity for people without access to a car.

Total Water Cycle Management Plan

Total Water Cycle Management Plan

In 2010 Council commenced work on a Total Water Cycle Management Plan for the Moreton Bay Regional Council area.

The management plan is the first stage of a coordinated response to managing water quality objectives for our rivers, creeks, beaches and Moreton Bay.

The management plan uses detailed modelling to identify broad catchment specific solutions that deliver the highest water quality outcomes at the least cost to the community.

Floodplain Risk Management Framework

Floodplain Risk Management Framework

In 2010 Council commenced work on a floodplain risk management framework including new and updated floodplain modelling.

In 2011, South-East Queensland experienced a number of significant weather events that led to loss of life and significant property damage across all local governments. In response, the Queensland Government carried out the Queensland Flood Enquiry, which made 175 recommendations for State and Local Governments to implement in order to minimise the risk to people and property where similar or greater events occur in the future.
