Miles told parliament today the pilot site would see the government, and Moreton Bay Regional Council, work with the private sector and utility providers to support future housing needs.
It comes after Miles, who is also Minister for State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, announced the formation of a Growth Areas Team in his department to consider short-term land supply challenges facing south-east Queensland.
“Neighbourhood Development Plan One within Caboolture West, will be the first pilot site in a future growth program which will unlock growth, housing choice and affordability,” Miles said.
“Work will also identify the infrastructure necessary to support more affordable, liveable communities.”
Work on the pilot site will provide a blueprint for future developments in Queensland, and is supported by a $10.5 million loan from the government’s Building Acceleration Fund for water and sewerage works.
“The provision of water and sewerage will be instrumental in kickstarting the delivery of approximately 3,000 new homes in Caboolture West Neighbourhood Development Plan area one,” Miles said.
“The site is expected to eventually provide approximately 30,000 homes for around 70,000 people.”Jump to next article
