The Yeronga Priority Development Area (PDA) was declared on 10 August 2018. The PDA is approximately three hectares and includes parts of Villa Street and Park Road. The site is located near an arterial road network and rail and bus services.

The site has been identified as a potential key urban renewal opportunity under the state government’s Advancing our cities and regions (AOCR) strategy.

Declaration of the Yeronga PDA establishes an overarching planning framework that will support the future economic and community outcomes in the area. The PDA provides opportunities to deliver new residential community with a range of other uses such as small-scale retail and a new community centre for Yeronga.

Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is responsible for planning and development assessment within the 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).
