Ripley Valley concerns

The Institute is progressing support to resolve development issues in the Ripley Valley Priority Development Area. While Ripley Valley development is progressing and enabling innovative development and many first home buyers to gain a foot on the property ladder, some issues remain.

The Ripley Valley PDA is expected to provide half of the growth of dwellings required to be delivered to house the future population growth in the Ipswich region. The PDA is expected to provide around 50,000 dwellings with a population of 120,000 and that makes this area a critical project for the region.

Issues raised for resolution with the Ipswich City Council and Economic Development Queensland include:

  • High fees and charges
  • More timely delivery of development approvals
  • Infrastructure delivery and offsets
  • Improved Cultural Heritage arrangements to better integrate all stakeholders’ views and allow timely project delivery.

Any views that you have on this can be provided to Policy Manager, Martin Zaltron, via email or on (07) 3229 1589.
