Project update #5: November 6, 2020

Developing a local area planning framework for the Finch Hatton township

A local area planning framework is being investigated for the Finch Hatton township, with the intent of facilitating development opportunities to support the potential of Finch Hatton becoming a trail town for the future mountain bike trails.

This project will follow a ‘local area plan’ process involving background and context investigations, setting a vision and principles, the development of local area frameworks and strategies relating to land uses, access, connectivity, infrastructure, built character and the public realm. Following the completion of the local area planning framework (as Stage 1 of the the local area planning project), the focus of the local area planning project will shift towards the Eungella township as Stage 2 of the project.

The potential benefits of this project include:

  • unlocking development opportunities that support the mountain bike trails and job creation
  • rejuvenation of activity in the commercial heart of the township
  • identifying opportunities for public realm enhancements in key locations and movement corridors
  • facilitative planning regulations.
