Updated plan released today.

Key things that I've found from flicking through:

-Residential density target increased to 15 dwellings per hectare
-Springfield-Ipswich transport corridor to be RAIL!!!!

A couple of interesting infrastructure projects:
4.30 Another CBD Brisbane River Pedestrian Crossing
4.36 Brisbane Cross River Bus Access???

Strike what I said in my first post, the DIP website put me through to SEQIPP instead of SEQRP earlier.

Density targets are 15 dwellings per hectare.
- 735,500 new dwellings by 2031
- 156,000 of these in Brisbane
- 148,000 on the Gold Coast
- 118,000 in Ipswich
- 98, 000 on the Sunshine Coast
- 84,000 in Moreton Bay
- 70,000 in Logan

Population projected to reach 4.4million in 2031

Here is some interesting stuff, pg 96.



The plan calls for:

Principal Activity Centres: Densities of 40–120 dwellings per hectare (net) or greater.
Major Activity Centres: 30–80 dwellings per hectare or greater.
Suburban TODs: 30–80 dwellings per hectare (net) or greater
TODs in priority transit corridors: 40 dwellings per hectare (net) or greater



That is a huge jump in density compared to what is currently existing.


The Transit Corridors are being reviewed and a plan to interface with this one will be released mid 2010. It is called:
Connecting SEQ 2031: An Integrated Regional Transport Plan for South East Queensland

^^ They have certainly identified a transport corridor-centric plan for 'activity centres'. I like that.

Very interesting.

Interesting!

I would have thought Moreton Bay would have had more allowable dwellings considering its at the forefront of Brisbane's northern expansion.

The Springfield-Ipswich rail was a no-brainer really, I would have been shocked if they went with busway. Great news if it happens though.`

As for the cross river bus access, is this possibly referring to the Adelaide St - Cultural Centre bus only bridge?

Whilst other rail expansions are either approved/proposed or "under study". On the other hand, its a shame about the government still p^ss-farting around with the Kippa-Ring corridor. That railway has been proposed for over 98 years iirc. :eek:hno:

Some land bankers are not going to be very happy with some areas removed from the Urban Footprint and 'Future Growth Areas' and put back into the Regional Landscape and Rural Production Area.

Hey
ABS; I would be very interested to know which areas does this includes. Is there a summary of changes to the footprint somewhere?

India has a population of over 1 billion, we have a population of almost 22 million. We have a bit of a way to go yet :eek:hno:

Ahmedabad, India:
Urban area population: 4,525,000
Urban area size: 202 sq km
Urban area density: 22,401 per sq km

Brisbane:
Urban area population: 1,676,000
Urban area size: 1,826 sq km
Urban area density: 918 per sq km

So to reach Ahmedabad density, Brisbane would need a population of 40.9 million (without any physical expansion of the urban area).
I have a slight feeling that it won't happen...
