    Public comment sought for Bromelton State Development Area

    The Newman Government wants community feedback on the draft development scheme for the Bromelton State Development Area (BSDA).

    Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning, Jeff Seeney, said the draft development scheme outlined the vision for the area and identified preferred future land uses.

    The BSDA will accommodate industrial activities of regional, state and national significance, maximising the use of the area’s existing standard gauge rail.

    The rail connects Bromelton to the Port of Brisbane, to other parts of Queensland, and to other States.

    Mr Seeney said residents and interested people in the area were being given an opportunity to provide feedback.

    “The Bromelton State Development Area is approximately 15,000 hectares in area and includes approximately 2,700 hectares proposed for industry. This area of land will provide development potential for industrial uses until about 2031.”

    The Queensland Coordinator-General Barry Broeis is required to assess land use proposals in the Bromelton State Development Area.

    Mr Seeney said the State Government, Scenic Rim Regional Council, and major property owners have worked together over the past few years to prepare a plan for the overall State Development Area.

    “The proposed development scheme is the result of the collaborative approach to planning,” he said.

    “I would like to thank the Scenic Rim Regional Council and major property owners for their contribution in planning for Bromelton.

    “The Beaudesert community is invited to discuss the draft development scheme with officers from the Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning.”

    Information sessions will held be at The Centre, 82 Brisbane Street, Beaudesert on:
    • Thursday 26 July 2012 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm; and
    • Saturday 28 July 2012 from 10:00am to 12:30pm.

    All submissions received by the 9 August 2012 will be reviewed and considered, before the document is finalised at the end of the year.
