The Master Plan

The Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan is the first major milestone in realising the vision for the Oxley Creek corridor – the start of our journey.

The Master Plan is a comprehensive long-term plan that will guide the creation of the future parkland, including outcomes such as new leisure and sport-based recreation activities, economic hubs, tourism, cultural heritage interpretation, environmental education and connections for people and wildlife.

The Master Plan explores opportunities to improve flood resilience and water quality, restore wildlife habitats, reuse stormwater and other measures that allow the natural environment to thrive.

Community Engagement approach

The Oxley Creek Transformation draft Master Plan was developed with the help of key stakeholders and various Community Engagement processes conducted over two phases.

Phase 1 - Development of the draft Master Plan

The first phase of engagement took place between October 2017 and April 2018 by meeting stakeholders from 28 organisations who have connections to the Oxley Creek corridor. Our initial focus was to understand key community stakeholder groups’ views, issues, aspirations and valuable local knowledge.

A Master Plan Reference Group was formed with representatives from these key stakeholders. Participants included representatives from local bush care groups, schools, sport and recreation bodies, history groups and key land owners. Three meetings were held with the reference group to present ideas and gain feedback. The reference group were instrumental in helping guide the development of the draft Master Plan.

Phase 2 – Release of the draft Master Plan

Community consultation on the draft Master Plan took place from 26 April to 27 May 2018. During the consultation period, the Oxley Creek Transformation team undertook a range of consultation activities, including:

  • Face-to-face information kiosks at the Brisbane Markets, Sherwood State School Fete, Coles Corinda, The Station Oxley, planting events, clean-up events and more
  • Online feedback survey
  • Social media, website and newspaper advertisements
  • Direct mailout to suburbs within the Oxley Creek Transformation corridor catchment.

Next steps

The Oxley Creek Transformation team has reviewed the feedback received through the stakeholder and engagement program and, where appropriate, will incorporate feedback into the Master Plan. The final Master Plan is scheduled for release in late 2018.
