Shaping the Future of South East Queensland with the Updated Regional Plan

August 30, 2023

The Queensland Government's release of the 2023 update to the South East Queensland Regional Plan (SEQRP) marks a pivotal moment in the region's development trajectory. This comprehensive plan, welcomed by the Property Council of Australia, outlines strategies to accommodate the burgeoning population growth projected for the area. With forecasts predicting a population of over six million residents by 2046, SEQ faces significant challenges in meeting housing demands and infrastructure needs.

One of the key highlights of the updated plan is its emphasis on housing diversity. As the region experiences rapid urbanization and demographic shifts, ensuring a mix of housing options becomes paramount. The SEQRP recognizes the importance of balancing high-density developments with provisions for greenfield land, acknowledging the diverse needs of residents across the 12 local government areas.

However, translating policy objectives into tangible outcomes poses a formidable task. While the plan advocates for increased density, market realities present hurdles to delivering such housing solutions. Factors like construction costs, land availability, and regulatory frameworks influence the feasibility of development projects. Collaborative efforts between government bodies and the property sector are essential to navigate these challenges and realize the plan's ambitions.

Ultimately, the success of the SEQRP hinges on effective collaboration and coordinated action. All stakeholders, including government agencies, developers, and community representatives, must work in tandem to address the region's evolving needs. By fostering innovation, sustainability, and inclusivity, South East Queensland can chart a course towards a vibrant and resilient future.
