Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development
Transit oriented development (TOD) is a planning concept that promotes the creation of well-designed, higher density, mixed-use urban communities focused within walking distance of transit stations.
The Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning is working with Brisbane City Council to finalise a draft planning framework for a proposed TOD on the former Animal Research Institute at Yeerongpilly. The department expects to consult with the local community in the near future.
The 14-hectare Yeerongpilly TOD site is located alongside the Brisbane River, approximately 6 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD. It adjoins the Queensland Tennis Centre and Mirvac Tennyson Reach development to the west and the Beenleigh–Gold Coast railway line to the east. A pedestrian overpass across Fairfield Road provides easy access between the site and the Yeerongpilly train station.

Concept Plan of Development
The Yeerongpilly TOD Concept Plan of Development ( 1.72 MB) was prepared following community input in 2010. It outlined how the Yeerongpilly TOD might develop over the next 5–10 years and set out strategies for various aspects such as transport, community development and environmental sustainability. The concept plan map ( 426 KB) provides an overview of where different uses and building heights could be located on the site. (Note: Both documents were released in 2010 and only minor front page branding has been changed).
A Detailed Plan of Development ( 1.72 MB), which includes information from detailed technical studies including flood behaviour, heritage aspects, traffic, noise, vegetation and site contamination is currently being developed and will be released for public consultation in the near future.
Yeerongpilly TOD State Planning Regulatory Provision 2011
The Yeerongpilly TOD State Planning Regulatory Provision 2011 (SPRP) ( 233 KB) for the commercial early release site on Fairfield Road was released on 11 November 2011. The SPRP is a statutory document which specifies planning requirements for the site which now accommodates the Brisbane City Council South Regional Business Centre.
A new SPRP that provides a statutory planning framework over the whole site is currently being finalised and will be subject to public consultation in the near future. It is proposed that this new SPRP will replace the 2011 SPRP.
