Master Plan & Stage 1 – Priority Development Area, Oxley


The Queensland State Government has announced that the master plan and stage one residential works for the new Priority Development Area (PDA) over the former Oxley Secondary College site are now open for public review and comment.

Jess Pugh, Member for Mount Ommaney outlined that the PDA master plan will ensure the delivery of a vibrant and sustainable addition to the community for generations to come.

This development will transform an abandoned site into a hub for our community, with construction works expected to create 70 local jobs,” 

“It will feature 80 residential lots, 10 hectares of public open and green space, and a site for retirement and community facilities, as well as supporting the relocation of the Yuingi childcare centre.

“In total more than 50 per cent of the 19-hectare site will be public open space, taking in the hillside, recreation and bushland areas, and all 3.5 hectares of bushland will be preserved, along with a much loved and locally iconic eucalyptus tree”.

“This was the result of a fantastic community campaign last year to ask the Lord Mayor to take the hillside land. I’m really happy that state and local government were able to work together and secure this outcome for the community.

“Once the development is complete, our government will plant over 600 new trees and more than 90,000 plant tube stock in road verges, recreation space corridors and the hillside area”. “This will be done in consultation with the site arborist and will ensure there’ll be no net loss of trees.” Ms Pugh said.

Master Plan – Stage 1 (a – c)

Priority Development Areas are designated areas of land identified for development that will deliver significant economic and social benefits to a community. The Queensland Government will now work with the local council, community and industry stakeholders once a PDA is declared to plan, assess and deliver projects in the area.

Ms Pugh said development of the underutilised site is a real win for the greater Oxley community.

“We’ve listened to residents throughout the entire planning process, and this feedback has played a significant role in informing the master plan”. “Publicly notifying the development application keeps the community involved and allows them another opportunity to comment on the future look and feel of their neighbourhood.

“I invite everyone in our community to view the development application and lodge a submission, to have their say on the future look and feel of our community Ms Pugh said.
