QUEEN'S WHARF PLANNING SCHEME IN PLACE

THE Queensland Government has formally adopted the development scheme for the renewal of the Queen's Wharf Brisbane Priority Development Area, securing a jobs boost for the city.

The development scheme provides the planning framework for the assessment of Destination Brisbane Consortium's proposal, which is made up of The Star Entertainment Group (ASX:SGR) and developers Chow Tai Fook and the Far East Group.

The scheme is expected to create 2000 jobs during construction and 8000 ongoing jobs, after the $3 billion resort and casino precinct is complete.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning Jackie Trad says public submissions supported the redevelopment and improvements in the area.

"This development will transform and rejuvenate the under-utilised south-western edge of the Brisbane CBD, attract significant investment to the city and most importantly, create jobs for Queensland families," Trad says.

"We invited the community, residents and business operators to view the proposed development scheme and we received 37 written submissions.

"Some amendments were made to the proposed development scheme as a result of issues raised in these submissions."

Queen's Wharf Brisbane was declared a Priority Development Area in November 2014 to facilitate the planning and delivery of the integrated resort. All development applications will now be assessed against the scheme.

A Design Advisory Panel will be implemented to assist in delivering a high-quality project for the benefit of the state and visitors.

The panel will be chaired by the Queensland Government Architect, with members to be drawn from the Queensland Urban Design and Places Panel.

"This part of our city is one of the most culturally and historically significant sites in Brisbane, and the Design Advisory Panel will help ensure that Queen's Wharf is a civic landmark," Trad says.
