The Logan-Albert catchment contains one of the fastest growing areas in SEQ. The northern end of City of Gold Coast is part of this growth corridor, along with the State-designated Priority Development Areas (PDAs) of Greater Flagstone, Yarrabilba and Bromelton.
The lower Logan River corridor is vitally important to the region as a floodplain. Maintaining this function will allow the high growth areas to occur without the social and economic costs associated with poor past planning decisions in other river corridors. Much of the lower Logan River corridor is in private ownership and regional investment in key public recreation nodes and setbacks along with strong regulation will allow this floodplain function to continue.
The Logan-Albert estuary links to internationally recognised Ramsar-listed wetlands within Southern Moreton Bay. Protection of this asset is therefore required to meet our international commitments.
The Scenic Rim region is set to become a rural lifestyle focus for SEQ. Its atmospheric villages and high quality boutique agricultural enterprises will attract Brisbane and Logan urban visitors and will become an increasingly attractive area for tree-changers with an accompanying increase in land values for a quality lifestyle. The catchment contains important agricultural areas with associated industries located within 100 km radius of the major population centres of the region..
