Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Carseldine Village is a new residential community being developed by Economic Development Queensland (EDQ), a government agency which combines property development with specialist planning functions, on the site of the former QUT campus at Carseldine.

Carseldine Village will be an exemplar sustainable development – the first residential development in Queensland to commit to delivering net zero energy emission homes with energy saving features.

On completion, the new village will consist of mixed use, diverse and affordable residential, small commercial and retail, along with bushland and recreational open space areas.

At Carseldine Village, 75 per cent of the bushland is being retained and there is more than 20 hectares of green and open space. Where vegetation is being removed, off-set planting and rehabilitation works will be undertaken.

The masterplan for Carseldine Village is proposed to be developed in 5 stages over the next 3-5 years, subject to market demand. The current approved masterplan provides for a maximum of 606 dwellings. In one of the future stages a village retail heart will potentially comprise of convenience supermarket, speciality retail and dining.

The Government Office Precinct, C&K Child Care Centre and Carseldine Markets will remain.

The Green

The Green, a new $6.5 million sport and recreation precinct that stretches over four hectares and incorporates the latest technology opened on 11 January 2020.

The Green includes three soccer fields (of which two are dual purpose soccer / rugby league); two volleyball courts; two dual purpose tennis / netball courts; a half-court basketball court; an outdoor ping pong table; a turf cricket pitch and synthetic practice nets; an all abilities playground; yoga lawn; exercise equipment; BBQs, shaded seating, public toilets and sports change room facilities and more than 120 car parks.

The Green also incorporates the eSwitch lighting control system technology which is linked to a downloadable booking app called BrightSport allowing sporting clubs to book the sporting fields and courts and turn the LED lights on for night-time use. A fully automated irrigation system with an integrated weather monitor has also been installed to save water.

Bookings for the sports facilities at The Green can be made via the Carseldine Village website.

Stage 1, 2A & 2B – NOW SELLING

Stage 1 civil and electrical works commenced 27th April and includes 53 terrace residential lots, an aged care / retirement development site and upgrades to three nearby intersections to improve local traffic flow and access to / from the village.

The works are anticipated to be completed in early 2021 (pending weather and COVID-19 measures).

Stage 2 civil and electrical works are expected to commence late 2020 for the 49 terrace residential lots as part of the Stage 2A, 2B and 2C releases. The works are anticipated to be completed late 2021 (pending weather and COVID-19 measures).

    The bridge over cabbage tree creek and the pathway on the Carseldine side was completed a few weeks ago but the path is still blocked off. Access to the bridge on the Aspley High School side appears to be blocked because of the construction works on the new buildings at the school, which I understand might not be completed until April 2021. Is pedestrian access going to be blocked until then?

    Bill asked 3 months ago

    The $1million pedestrian/cycle bridge within Carseldine Village is now complete and is due to open for use to the public soon.  

    The Department of Education have advised there is a path from Aspley State High School south-west of the bridge, that goes around the pool so students will be able to use the new bridge and path to access the school. During the balance of the Stage 1 civil works at Carseldine Village which are expected to be completed by the end of 2020, this will be via the pre-existing pathway accessed from the Dorville Road entry north-west of the bridge.

    I'm concerned on the impact of our schools especially Aspley High School which is already at a high Capacity. Dorville road is usually congested all the way from the roundabout up to Zillmere road during the school runs as it is. If our local schools are already at full capacity where are these new students expected to go? How are you going to combat the extra traffic on Dorville road?

    JUS-1337 asked 5 months ago


    As part of any significant development project, a traffic impact assessment is necessary. The documentation submitted for the Carseldine Village Stage 1 PDA development application included the required analysis. The proposed traffic management measures were rigorously assessed and approved.  These measures include upgrades to three external intersections, one of which is on Dorville Road, with their construction commencing shortly. The Stage 1 traffic advice can be found online searching (DEV2019/1074). 

    Please also note on 20 June 2020, the Queensland Government committed a further $128 million towards addressing safety and congestion at Beams Road. Construction of the $233 million level crossing overpass could commence as early as December 2021, subject to funding contributions from Brisbane City Council and the Australian Government.   See here


    In relation to your query around school capacity, the Queensland Department of Education https://education.qld.gov.au/contact-us would be best placed to discuss these matters.

    I note with interest the construction of a bridge to Aspley High School - I think this is a great idea. Will the undergrowth around the track and bridge be cleared to allow clear sight from the carpark and Carseldine Green to improve personal security for young high school girls in particular using the track?

    Norm asked 5 months ago

    The new bridge will provide a safe, active travel path for school children to cycle and walk to school, including lighting on the bridge and along a new section of path which connects with the existing pathway on the north side of Cabbage Tree Creek.

    In regards to vegetation removal EDQ have followed Brisbane City Council standards in relation to the proximity of vegetation to pedestrian/cycle paths for public safety, as well as vegetation protection.

    re Stormwater Thank you for answering my question. 1) What plans are in place to increase the capacity of the Cabbage Tree Creek on the Fitzgibbon side. Some minimal work was done after I complained after the floods in 2012 when the whole place was submerged and the reserve land was almost 4 feet under. But I do not think it is enough. The amount of soil dumped there now looks like a small mountain. 2) Also I reckon before any work is to start there, the traffic should be taken care of. I do not mean putting in 'slow-down' signs but real care, like increasing the lanes. Someone is only interested in making money(houses) but not spending for public (roads, level crossing). 3) All funds are being spent in the city and south. Even the recent work on Beams Rd - near the golf range looks like a waste of money and time. Thanks Please let me know

    kartom asked 6 months ago

    1)      This development does not include works in Cabbage Tree Creek for stormwater management.
    All stormwater management measures are delivered internal to the development, and include, amongst other measures, a new 1,200mm diameter stormwater pipe in the main entry boulevard. This pipe and the other proposed measures appropriately manage the stormwater impacts from the development without any works being required in Cabbage Tree Creek.

    2)      As part of any significant development project, a traffic impact assessment is necessary. The documentation submitted for the Carseldine

    Village Stage 1 PDA development application included the required analyses. The proposed traffic management measures were rigorously assessed

    and approved. These measures include upgrades to three external intersections, with their construction commencing shortly. The Stage 1 traffic

    advice can be found online searching (DEV2019/1074). 

    Works on the three external intersections included in Stage 1, which are (in part) outside the Fitzgibbon Priority Development Area, are also subject

    to Council approvals which have now been granted.


    Please also note the Department of Transport and Main Roads is currently undertaking a planning study on the Beams Road level rail crossing to 

    investigate options to reduce congestion and address safety concerns. Information is provided on their Beams Road (Carseldine) rail level 

    crossing project website here.

    Hi team Could you please provide an update on the development application for subdivision of Stage 1. Is this still progressing?

    Vi asked about 1 year ago

    Development applications to amend the Carseldine Urban Village Masterplan, and for the Stage 1 development, were lodged in October 2019. The applications can be viewed here https://bit.ly/33W98eO by searching DEV2018/932/3 (Masterplan amendment) and DEV2019/1074 (Stage 1 development). A public notification period for both applications is to run for a 22 business day period from 20 November to 19 December 2019, giving the community a formal process to have their say on the proposals.

    Why is there an open day being advertised and a display unit built on site already? This development is still not approved and is still open to public feedback. Is this feedback going to be listened to at all? Or will the development of the site go ahead regardless of local opposition?

    Vanessa asked 12 months ago

    The Community Open Day on 1 Feb is to celebrate the approved and completed $6.5m brand new sport and recreation precinct (Stage S).

    In regards to future development of the site the development applications (DA) for an amendment to the Carseldine Urban Village Masterplan, and Stage 1 development, were lodged in October 2019.A range of reports and documents were prepared for, and submitted with, the development applications including but not limited to a town planning report, proposal plans, landscape plans, civil engineering report, stormwater management plan, traffic impact assessment and ecological assessment.

    The applications can be viewed online by searching DEV2018/932/3 (Masterplan amendment) and DEV2019/1074 (Stage 1 residential subdivision).

    The Masterplan amendment application looks to formalise the location of the village heart for the Carseldine Urban Village on the western side of the entry boulevard. The Village Heart will provide for a local active retail, commercial and mixed use precinct that links the existing Government Office Precinct, with the new residential development and the new sporting facilities, all a shortwalk to the Carseldine Train Station.

    The Stage 1 residential subdivision proposes 53 terrace housing lots and one mixed use allotment. The development will also propose one retirement / aged care development allotment which will be subject to a separate future development application. The terrace homes:

    • will deliver a contemporary built form, with individuality and diversity in design
    • provide affordability for future residents, with all homes required to achieve a minimum 7-star energy rating
    • achieve a minimum Silver level of the Liveable Housing Design Guidelines, making them safer and easier to use for all people including: those with disability and ageing Australians
    • provide privacy for the residents, while presenting attractively to the street.

    A public notification period for both applications is to run for a 22 business day period from 20 November to 19 December 2019, giving the community a formal process to have their say on the proposals.

    The Carseldine Village Sales and Information Centre is under construction. Works onsite will occur over the next two months. The building is temporary and not fixed, therefore if an approval isn’t awarded the building can be removed.

    New traffic impact assessment is needed PRIOR to any further development. The current development is based on a traffic assessment done in 2010/11. This is SO unacceptable and outdated. Since 2010 there has been a significant increase traffic and congestion. A new high school is being built. Since 2010 we have seen further land clearing, hotter, dryer conditions. Now is not the time to be clearing more trees. A new environmental assessment needs to be done to reflect current conditions. A new environmental and traffic assessment is needed PRIOR to any further development.

    Vanessa asked 12 months ago

    As part of any significant development project, a traffic impact assessment is necessary. In the case of Carseldine Village, traffic impact assessments were undertaken in 2010 and 2011 as part of the Fitzgibbon Priority Development Scheme amendment, which is the overarching planning instrument for the Carseldine Village site. A Carseldine Village specific traffic impact assessment was also prepared in May 2018 and lodged as part of the development application for the Carseldine Village masterplan, which was approved in November 2018. The traffic impact assessment addressed the proposed internal road layout as well as impacts on existing external roads and intersections, including recommendations for several external intersection upgrades.

    The Carseldine Village Stage 1 development application was lodged in October 2019, along with further traffic advice specific to Stage 1, which includes upgrades to three external intersections. The Stage 1 traffic advice can be found online searching DEV2019/1074 (Stage 1 residential subdivision). Works on the three external intersections included in Stage 1, which are (in part) outside the Fitzgibbon Priority Development Area, are also subject to Council approval.

    In relation to environmental factors, a comprehensive ecological (flora and fauna) assessment report was prepared for the development application for the Carseldine Village masterplan. Further Stage 1 specific ecological advice was included in the Stage 1 development application which can also be found via the link and search reference above.

    Development applications for each subsequent stage of the Carseldine Village development will include stage specific technical advice (including traffic and ecological) to ensure assessments and recommendations included in the original reports are still appropriate.

    I have recently seen information about a 'booking system' to hire the new sporting facilities at 'The Green'. These fees are up to $55 / hour for a soccer field, $30 / hour for cricket nets. Are these facilities not free for the public to use ? Throughout this project I saw no communication about a cost to use the new sporting facilites. https://m.brightsport.com.au/Search/Site/55#switches

    peterb asked 10 months ago

    Hi Peter,

    That’s correct, a fee is payable to hire the sports fields and courts at the new sport and recreation precinct - The Green. The fee is charged to contribute to the significant cost of maintaining the fields, courts and amenities building to ensure the community can enjoy high standard facilities in the years to come. The fee also covers the cost of LED lighting for the fields and courts, as well as power and hot water for the amenities building. An incorporated entity established by three sports clubs has been tasked with the management and maintenance of the sports facilities, with field and court hire fees set on a partial cost recovery, not a profit making, basis.

    I have seen water logging there when it rains. Now the soil level is being raised up. What plans are in place to accommodate this displaced water. Please let me know the specifics

    Kartom asked 6 months ago

    New stormwater infrastructure, with capacity to manage stormwater for the entire Carseldine Village development and mitigate external flood impacts, is being constructed as part of Stage 1 civil works, which commenced on 27 April 2020. Stage 1 civil works include installation of large subsurface stormwater pipes beneath the new Carseldine Village entry road (off Beams Road). These new pipes will capture stormwater from local street drainage (constructed in each stage of the development) on both sides (east and west) of the new entry road. All stormwater will drain into two bio-retention basins for water quality treatment purposes and the controlled release of stormwater into Cabbage Tree Creek. Subject to favourable weather, Stage 1 civil works are expected to be completed in late 2020. The relevant approved documentation related to stormwater management can be found in the Stage 1 PDA development approval DEV2019/1074.
