Economic Development Queensland's role

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). It continues current development activities of these bodies whilst identifying new projects, which may include retail or development outcomes.

Within EDQ sits an experienced Urban Development team which plays the role of masterplanner at Northshore, working with private developers to deliver the major urban renewal project.

EDQ has planning and assessment responsibility for the 304 hectare Priority Development Area of Northshore and will work with local and state government, community and local landholders, and developers to deliver a waterfront community that is diverse, inclusive and utilises best-practise urban design.

EDQ is also the owner of approximately 60 hectares of land within the precinct that was transferred from the Port of Brisbane in 2010.

In May 2015, EDQ was nationally recognised for its excellence in government leadership at the 2015 Property Council of Australia-Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards.

The ISPT Award for Government Leadership recognises significant innovation and excellence in dealings with the property investment and development industries.
