South East Queensland Regional Plan

Caboolture West is recognised as an Identified Growth Area, which may accommodate significant growth in the Moreton Bay region in the long-term. This area will incorporate a range of activities through residential and employment growth in the Moreton Bay Region.

Previous planning

The Caboolture West area was previously considered for urban development in a draft strategic plan of the former Caboolture Shire Council in the mid-1980s.

The area was also identified in the past South East Queensland regional plans as an area that may provide significant resources for future residential, employment and enterprise purposes.
