Priority Development Areas (PDAs) are parcels of land within Queensland that have been identified for specific accelerated development with a focus on economic growth and community development.
Currently, there are two PDAs in Redlands: Toondah Harbour and Weinam Creek. The Toondah Harbour $1.39 billion revitalisation represents unrivalled tourism, cultural and economic growth ppportunities for South East Queensland, while the Weinam Creek redevelopment will be a regional gateway to Moreton Bay with opportunities for a transport hub and waterfront commercial and recreational precinct.
The Cleveland and Capalaba Master Plans are the catalysts for invigorating these two principal regional activity centres. Council is proactively recruiting businesses, education and service providers as well as promoting a range of housing options and encouraging their consolidation as the key commercial centres of the Redlands.
