A shop too far?

Unlocking Logan’s Prosperity amendment proposes separation distances for centres in emerging community zones in relation to existing, planned, or approved centres in the region.

The Institute’s submission raises concern with the a hard set of separation distances for future local and neighbourhood centres.

The submission explains that the local and neighbourhood centres need to respond to the immediate and changing needs of the community. Implementing a 1 or 2 kilometre separation from other centres may not enable local catchment centre development opportunities.

The Institute supported the Unlocking Logan’s Prosperity amendment suite of changes that provide greater benefit to the region in supporting regional economic development opportunities. These include:

  • A new Industry Precinct for the Mixed Use zone to specifically support consistent industry uses (and avoid conflict of uses with sensitive use) and increase building heights to respond to current and emerging industry uses within Berrinba
  • Enabling the low impact industry uses for breweries in the centre zone, as well as for the Beenleigh, Logan Central, Shailer Park, and Springwood local plans
  • Revised qualifying lot size from 600sqm to 500sqm for Reconfiguring a Lot within the low-medium density residential zone – Townhouse precinct, to better support dual occupancy land uses
  • Allowing for short-term accommodation land uses within the Logan Village local plan to facilitate the delivery of this activity.
