Gatton North Major Enterprise and Industrial Area Plan

Lockyer Valley Regional Council

Frank and fearless leadership that successfully challenged original site intentions to deliver higher-order planning scheme solutions.

To support the draft planning scheme preparation, Infinitum Partners was engaged as consortium lead, to deliver a Major Industrial and Enterprise Area Plan (MEIA) for Gatton North in the Lockyer Valley region.

Infinitum Partners led a team of consultants through a comprehensive investigation and advisory process that sought to provide planning direction for the viability of a catalyst industrial development intended to support future job creation and economic development. 

Infinitum Partners identified that the sites physical constraints and capital cost would not support the proposed development, and boldly deemed the project unviable before recommending a range of alternative opportunities far better supported by the site.

These included an advanced vegetation offset area, high value niche agricultural production like medicinal cannabis and vanilla, and the circular economy – solar, biomass, gas and waste to energy. Overall, this project was considered a great success with the final adoption of an outcome over and above council’s original intention. Now, the MEIA exists as a clever planning framework for future growth management and a clever component of the region’s draft planning scheme.
