Hi Peli does this link work for you i couldn’t get it to.
Last night i met with one of my QLD scouts in Double Bay. Yes the future is looking good for this investment sector for many reasons.
I develop land and build new properties including duplexes. I believe that if you are just starting out and do some good home work you will make great profits over the next 3 – 5 years there, IMHO

I spose developing something in the highlighted area could be rewarding?
What if I bought a big block of land cheaply, and held on to it for a little bit?
What are the demographics of this area?

Loan wolf – the only problem with land banking is no cash flow. I have held and still do land at Midge Point since i was 26 (oh !!!!) i think my twins are going to very rich cause that is who will reap the most rewards, NO i’m not selling (fool)

The plan aims to be an overarching document that “coontrols” development by identifying open space and development areas (amongst others) for South East Queensland. This plan needs to be considered with other regional planning documents including the infrastructur plan, the transport plan plus some others that are being developed at present. In essence, any new big greenfield developments require a special statute through Queensland parliament to recieve consent.
If you are a developer, it is indeed happy days as this plan overrides local government plans. I know that Redland Shire is in deep trouble at the moment due to a perception that a majority of councillors are too pro developer.
SEQ at present is at a crossroads – too much development placing an unwanted strain on infratructure and other services leading to meltdown.

Hi Rob, yes i can see some major problems stemming from too much too quick. Currently the councils can’t keep up with the demand and will suffer in the next few years.
I remember when the Gold Coast free way was built and they said it was to big, look at it now it should be twice the size.
Sydney is a B….y nightmare the roads are shocking, tunnels under the city, and they still can’t keep up with the traffic demand.
Although i believe we have the best roads in the world our forsight falls far behind and puts major pressures on residential areas.
I noticed an article in API about Toowong, Ipswich which is the flavour of the Year at the moment is under strain from new sub divisions which will surely flow out to Toowong and other areas.
People will go to where the cheapest houses are being produced, thats is why i choose to develop in these areas.
