Community Forum on Toondah Priority Development Area

Design Community Support Toondah & Cleveland Redland City Futures Paul Bishop Arts Evolution

Early 2014, a concerned community of architects, designers, landscapers, surveyors, planners and engineers gathered in response to a Redland City Development proposal for Toondah Harbour that was given PDA (Priority Development Area) Status by the State Government, who reserve final approval.

A section of the community have many issues with the potential extent of the sweeping powers that could be used in this project. In a spirit of goodwill and open collaboration, a majority of Redland City Councillors voted to extend the community consultation phase for an extra month to garner community views or issues. At the same time several teams of SEQ's most passionate design advocates offered two days of professional consultation on a free (pro-bono) basis, to create a range of strategies to guide council toward an exemplary outcome for Toondah Harbour AND Cleveland CBD.
Thank you to the many committed locals who volunteered their valuable skills and contributions in the best interest of Local Community Futures.
