Broadhectare Study, South East Queensland, 2009
The Broadhectare study for South East Queensland, edition 6, 2009 was released in May 2009. The report contains findings for the region’s 10 local government areas and the Toowoomba Statistical District. It identifies the location and quantifies the area, timing of development and dwelling yield of larger land parcels to house the region’s growing population.
The study involved extensive consultation and collaboration with councils, the Urban Development Institute of Australia (Queensland) and major developers.
A measure of future residential land supply
The land identified in the study is the first stage in the land development pipeline. It includes parcels of land identified as suitable, potentially available and serviceable for future residential development. The study looked at land parcels greater than 0.25 ha.
The identified residential land is classified as urban residential development or lower density development (rural residential). The timing for land development is based on local government infrastructure extension programs, recent lot approvals and industry planning, including the development intentions of major developers. Timing is divided into the following five categories:
- 0–2 years
- 2–5 years
- 5–10 years
- 10+ years
- no time frame
The category ‘no time frame’ also includes smaller parcels in existing developed areas where development could occur at any time (depending on the owners’ intentions).
The geographic information system analysis technique used in the broadhectare study involves creating segments over each local government area. Each segment is then populated with information that impacts on the suitability and availability of broadhectare land for residential development. Using rule-based filtering, broadhectare land stocks can be readily identified.
