Infrastructure for growing communities

Infrastructure for growing communities

Logan has a growing population in the south-west corridor, particularly in the Queensland Government’s Priority Development Areas (PDAs) of Yarrabilba and Greater Flagstone.

When fully developed, the Greater Flagstone PDA is anticipated to be home to around 120,000 people and the Yarrabilba PDA to 50,000.

The delivery of community infrastructure for health, safety and education is a key component in creating healthy, cohesive and vibrant communities. 

The amount and rate of growth in Logan’s south-west demands urgent and timely delivery of these services.

  • Community infrastructure for health, safety and education
  • Good infrastructure is a key component in creating healthy, cohesive and vibrant communities, especially with the rapid growth in Logan’s south-west
  • Timely access to important services without needing to travel

Council has been specifically asking for:

  • delivery of an integrated service delivery model for 0-8 year olds to enhance health and education outcomes, ideally co-located in the south-west of the city
  • early delivery of the first high school in Yarrabilba, incorporating a hub concept
  • secure funding to expand the Logan Village Police Beat.
