QUEENSLAND Premier Anna Bligh last week launched a proposal to create new zones to guide urban development in South East Queensland (SEQ).
Under the plan, state and local government would create the following new zones:
- 'Go-Zones' – areas along public transport corridors for higher density development; and
- 'No-go Zones' – established suburbs to be protected from high density development.
Premier Bligh said that the 'Go Zones' could reduce the planning timeline for new developments from years to months, whilst the 'No-go Zones' would "give communities in established suburbs certainty that their neighbourhood won't be transformed by higher density living."
