The Palaszczuk Government is encouraging the public to have their say on the plan for the city-shaping Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort Development.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said public consultation would be open until 19 October 2017.
“I want people from across the state to have a say on Queen’s Wharf because it is a project that is truly going to shape and transform our city,” Palaszczuk said.
“Queen’s Wharf Brisbane project is a game-changing urban renewal development, for its ability to create thousands of jobs and its potential for economic growth for our State.
“But this development will always be balanced by what the people want in our vibrant city and this is your opportunity to have your say on our future.
“We know that Queen’s Wharf can deliver great outcomes for our heritage, for new public and open spaces and for exciting urban design.
“It will be an iconic project for the City, transforming the North Bank and linking conveniently with the new Albert Street Cross River Rail Station, and I want to encourage people to have their say.”
The Destination Brisbane Consortium will be responsible for notifying all interested parties to make formal submissions to address any concerns with, or provide support for the development application. All submissions will be considered by Economic Development Queensland.
The Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Priority Development Area was declared on 28 November 2014, to facilitate the planning and delivery of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort Development and to establish the necessary policy framework to support the intended development for the site.
6 Star Green Star Communities rating
The Courier Mail reported the design for the Queen’s Wharf precinct earned it the city’s first 6 Star Green Star Communities rating.
The $3 billion integrated resort development, has been granted the coveted rating based on social, environmental and economic sustainability outcomes.
The Green Building Council of Australia praised the liveability of the precinct, recognising the commitment to public areas and green space for outdoor events, arts and culture, and encouraging healthy and active lifestyle options.
Queen’s Wharf is expected to be completed in 2022.
