Extra support for major projects and real estate investments
Major projects and property investments in Queensland can be developed in legislated State Development Areas (and Priority Development Areas).
These entities boost local economies and your return on investment through planning efficiencies and fast-tracking.
State development areas are areas of land that represent strategically located industrial hubs or major development sites.
Priority development areas are parcels of land that will deliver significant community benefits – including commercial developments, industrial opportunities, and residential estates.
