Redland Bay’s Strategic Regional Planning

There are several projects being undertaken across Redland City that fall into the master planning model for the bayside suburbs. Redland City Council acquired an 1859 square metres strategic parcel of prime waterfront land with panoramic views in May 2019, next to Cleveland Lighthouse and Cleveland Point Recreation Reserve. The parcel of land is considered of great historical and community value, and the land use is yet to be determined.

In April 2019 Redland City Council also signed an agreement with the Australian Government to purchase 61.78 hectares of Commonwealth land at 362-388 Old Cleveland Road East, Birkdale for community and environmental purposes.

Redland City Council is also working to deliver a Health Precinct Master Plan for land on the corner of Wellington and Weippin Street which will incorporate the expansion of the private and public hospitals.

There are also plans to construct a 159 hectare mega-sports and recreation precinct at Mount Cotton, on 159 hectares at 277 — 293 Heinemann Road.

Also falling into the massive master plan project for the Redland region is Shoreline, a new 300-hectare township situated on the shorelines of Moreton Bay. With close to 10,000 new residents in a new community with a town centre, self-contained employment,  commercial districts, plus close to 2.5 kilometres or interactive waterfront parks, 2.7 kilometres of habitat corridors, plus more than 70 hectares of public open space featuring more than 350,000 new trees planted the town will lead the way as far as waterfront suburbs go.
