Guidelines for development and assessment
The following is a guide about the information that will be required from proponents before a development agreement or sale can be established.
Parklands Hub falls within the masterplanned Parklands Priority Development Area (PDA). All proposed development at the Parklands Hub will be guided by the Parklands PDA Development Scheme which is a regulatory document that controls land use, infrastructure planning and development in the area.
Development applications will be assessed by the EDQ Development Assessment Team. Development will be subject to the state government’s streamlined 40-day development assessment process
Development within the PDA is based on principles of excellence in urban design and architecture, best practice environmentally sustainable design and transit oriented development.
All development is required to meet the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s EnviroDevelopment six-leaf accreditation standards based on ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water and community criteria. More information is available from www.envirodevelopment.com.au
Development of Parklands Hub will integrate into the greater GCHKP with projects that will add to the knowledge based focus of the precinct. Given the profile of the site all proponents must strive to create remarkable places with their own distinctive identity while responding to the established development in the surrounding GCHKP.
The key requirements for development in the precinct include:
The successful proponent will be responsible for undertaking all aspects of the development including development approvals, finance, construction, sales and marketing of the proposed project.
