Local Housing Action Plan

Rockhampton Regional Council’s Local Housing Action Plan was developed through a joint initiative involving the Queensland Government, Rockhampton Regional Council and the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) to respond to a range of immediate, emerging, and longer-term housing challenges in the Rockhampton region.

Key measures from the plan include:

  • Calls for targets for both social and private housing development across the region;
  • Improved communication and coordination between government and stakeholders through a new local housing coordination working group;
  • Identification and consideration of new and innovative housing solutions;
  • Provision of Council land in Parkhurst for new social housing development;
  • Identification of potential new housing developments in the Rockhampton CBD, Parkhurst, Mount Morgan and through the Priority Development Area (PDA) at CQUniversity with the ability to create over 3500 new dwellings; and
  • Call for State and Federal Government for regional funding programs that support enabling and catalyst infrastructure, housing development and planning.
