Logan is a dynamic and fast growing city, with the Queensland Government predicting our population will exceed 500,000 by 2036. As we welcome new people and opportunities, the way land is used and developed makes an important difference to how we live, work, play and move around in our city.

Growth is guided by our local planning scheme, which tells us what types of development can happen where (e.g. houses, industry, shops) and what rules they need to follow (e.g. how high, how big, how many carparks, manage flood and fire risks, etc.). Logan City Council is preparing a new

Logan is a dynamic and fast growing city, with the Queensland Government predicting our population will exceed 500,000 by 2036. As we welcome new people and opportunities, the way land is used and developed makes an important difference to how we live, work, play and move around in our city.

Growth is guided by our local planning scheme, which tells us what types of development can happen where (e.g. houses, industry, shops) and what rules they need to follow (e.g. how high, how big, how many carparks, manage flood and fire risks, etc.). Logan City Council is preparing a new planning scheme for our city to deliver the best possible outcomes for our future. Logan Plan 2025 will keep the parts of our current planning scheme which are working well, and make improvements to make sure our policy is keeping up with the expectations of our community and changing Queensland Government requirements.

Key elements

Our new planning scheme will focus on five key areas:

  • Managing our growth – growth where it makes sense, protecting our neighbourhoods and aligning development in expanding areas to more efficiently deliver the infrastructure and services needed to support that growth.
  • Enriching lifestyles and community - providing housing choices to suit different lifestyles, needs and stages of life, and improving how we value our diversity, heritage and culture, as well as encouraging the design of attractive, functional, safe and accessible streets and places to meet the needs of our community.
  • Thriving economy – improving certainty for business and investors to support jobs and opportunities for our city.
  • Living with nature – protecting our waterways, green spaces and biodiversity, as well as improving our management of natural hazards like flooding, to keep our community safe.
  • Sustainable and connected infrastructure – providing the roads, water, parks, facilities, networks and services needed to help our community prosper, in a way that is affordable and efficient.

Our roadmap (what happens when)

Making a new planning scheme is a big program of work, with key stages being:

2022Doing specialist studies, gathering input from our community and industry, and drafting our new planning scheme. We'd love to hear your ideas.
2023Legal review of our new scheme, and providing it to the Queensland Government for review.
2024Refining the scheme and presenting it for formal public consultation. You can make submissions supporting or objecting to any parts of the new planning scheme.
2025Final reviews (legal, state government) and preparing to adopt and commence Logan Plan 2025.
