A master plan for the Oxley Priority Development Area (PDA) in suburban Brisbane has been released for public comment by the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning.

MP for Mount Ommaney, Jess Pugh said the PDA master plan would ensure the delivery of a vibrant and sustainable addition to the community for generations to come.

“This development will transform an abandoned site into a hub for our community, with construction works expected to create 70 local jobs,” Ms Pugh said.

“It will feature 80 residential lots, 10 hectares of public open and green space, and a site for retirement and community facilities, as well as supporting the relocation of the Yuingi childcare centre.”

She said that more than 50 per cent of the 19-hectare site would be public open space and all 3.5 hectares of bushland would be preserved, along with a much-loved and locally iconic eucalyptus tree.

“This was the result of a fantastic community campaign last year to ask the Lord Mayor to take the hillside land,” Ms Enoch said.

“I’m really happy that the State and Local Government were able to work together and secure this outcome for the community,” she said.

“Once the development is complete, the Government will plant over 600 new trees and more than 90,000 plant tube stock in road verges, recreation space corridors and the hillside area.”

Ms Enoch said the plantings would be completed in consultation with the site arborist to ensure there was no net loss of trees.

She said Stage One works were expected to begin mid-year.
