The Property Sector as an Advocate for TOD: The Case of South East Queensland

ByBruce James

Queensland is one of six states in Australia and has a population of 4.2 million. The south east region of Queensland, Australia’s fastest growing region, has a current population of 2.46 million which is forecast to reach 3.7 million by 2026. In 2005 the Queensland Government released the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2005-2026 (SEQRP). The SEQRP was developed in response to the need to coordinate and integrate land use and infrastructure planning across the south east region. The aim of the SEQRP is “to manage this growth and associated change in the most sustainable way and to protect and enhance the quality of life in the region” (Queensland Government, 2005, p1).
