The Oxley Priority Development Area (PDA) was declared on 10 August 2018. The approximately 19.28 hectare site has been identified as a key development project within the South East Queensland urban renewal precincts zone (SEQ urban renewal precinct) of the Advancing our cities and regions (AOCR) strategy

Declaration of a PDA will provide an opportunity for an accelerated delivery of innovative and best practice urban design with new homes and community facilities on the site, while retaining a significant amount of vegetation and open space.

Located in close proximity to the Oxley railway station and approximately 11 kilometres southwest of the Brisbane CBD, the PDA is border by Cliveden Avenue to the north, Blackheath Road to the east, Seventeen Mile Rocks Road to the south and bushland to the west.

Other than temporary use as government offices during the fire ant eradication program, the school buildings have remained dormant since the college closed in 2000.

Oxley PDA Interim Land Use Plan

The Economic Development Act 2012 provides for a streamlined planning and development framework for PDAs to facilitate economic development, and development for community purposes.

Once a PDA is declared under the Economic Development Act 2012, a development scheme for the PDA must be prepared.

Until the development scheme is finalised, development within the PDA will be regulated under the Interim Land Use Plan (ILUP).
