Economic Development Queensland
Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is the State Government’s streamlined business unit for residential, urban and industrial development with its primary focus to facilitate economic development throughout Queensland.
EDQ replaces the former Urban Land Development Authority (ULDA) and Property Services Group (PSG). EDQ will continue the current development activities of these bodies and identify new projects, which may include retail or development outcomes.
Economic Development Queensland will play a key role in streamlining and fast-tracking development throughout the State with the development expertise of the ULDA and PSG now transferred across to EDQ.
Economic Development Queensland also undertakes a strategic planning function for Priority Development Areas (PDAs). It will work closely with local governments in planning within PDAs and also with provisional priority development areas (PPDAs).
Existing development schemes for previously declared areas remain valid and development projects will continue to be delivered within EDQ, maintaining certainty for industry and the community.
Economic Development Queensland is made up of three key commercial areas:
EDQ may also have broader role in facilitating economic development through retail or commercial development outcomes.
