How can I have my say on the future development of the Herston Quarter PDA?
The proposed development scheme is currently out for public submission. During the submission period, all interested parties including the community, residents, and business operators are invited to view the proposed development scheme and make a written submission for consideration by the Minister for Economic Development Queensland.
What is a proposed development scheme?
Will the heritage buildings remain?
How will traffic be managed in the redevelopment?
How will the proposed development provide sufficient parking?
How will other construction impacts be managed including traffic, noise, vibration and dust?
How has the community been involved in the project to date?
Who is responsible for what elements of the development?
Development of the Herston Quarter PDA involves a number of organisations performing various roles over the life of the proposed renewal of the site. Queensland Treasury managed the competitive bid process. Metro North Hospital and Health Services is the State Government's project manager for the site's renewal with oversight of the contractual arrangement with Australian Unity (the developer). EDQ is the responsible planning agency (including plan making and development assessment) rather than Brisbane City Council (BCC). BCC remains involved in the planning process and is responsible for other matters including local infrastructure networks and management of local laws.
Why has the PDA been declared?
The Herston Quarter PDA was declared to establish the necessary policy framework to support the intended development and community outcomes for the area. The redevelopment of the PDA will include a Specialist Rehabilitation and Ambulatory Care Centre, a private hospital, aged care and retirement living, residential accommodation, childcare facilities and retail and restaurant facilities to support the new mixed-use community.

What is the vision for the Herston Quarter PDA?
Development in the Herston Quarter PDA will capitalise on and leverage the convenience and quality of the adjacent institutions, heritage places, public transport infrastructure and RBWH to support employment growth in health and knowledge industries and deliver a unique and world-class destination for Brisbane. While development will have an emphasis on health-related uses, the PDA will also provide a mix of other complementary uses to support this outcome.
Development in the Herston Quarter will achieve this vision by:
Who will prepare the Herston Quarter PDA development scheme?
The development scheme will be prepared by EDQ in consultation with state agencies and other stakeholders.
Who will undertake the development assessment for the Herston Quarter PDA?
What happens when a development application is made in the Herston Quarter PDA?
A PDA development application will be assessed against the purposes of the ED Act and the Herston Quarter PDA Interim Land Use Plan (ILUP) until the development scheme has been finalised.
Any development applications made under the ILUP may require public notification if it is considered to have adverse impacts on adjoining land or amenity.
How does the ED Act development assessment process differ from the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 development assessment process?
Development applications over land within a PDA are made against the ILUP, instead of the local planning scheme and assessed under the ED Act. Under this Act, the assessment process generally occurs within 40 business days. This timeframe does not include circumstances where there is a need for additional information or public notice of the application.
Development applications over land outside a PDA are made to and assessed by the local government authority under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 and the planning scheme.
