Land for housing ideas

Following the Queensland Housing Summit, held on 20 October 2022, the government committed to looking at all state government landholdings as a strategy to help tackle the housing issues in Queensland.

This work is being led by the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, supported by the Department of Resources as the administrator for most of the landholdings on state land.

The purpose of this work is to identify land parcels that may be suitable for housing and housing-related services.

The Department of Resources is often approached by leaseholders or trustees with ideas for the potential redevelopment of underutilised trust or leasehold land. We are asking for any of these ideas to be submitted for further investigation.

The offer to submit an idea is completely voluntary.

Who can submit an idea

As a valued leaseholder or trustee, we want to hear from you. We believe your ideas will bring a new perspective, encouraging us to think differently about ways we can help to ease the pressure across the entire housing system by identifying and exploring options for underutilised trust or leasehold land.

You can submit an idea until 31 January 2023.

How we will use your idea

Any ideas that are submitted will be subject to further investigation. Officers from the Department of Resources will be in touch to talk about your idea. If the idea is feasible, a more detailed investigation will begin.

Submit your idea

Note: If you cannot submit an idea online, or you have limited access to technology, please phone 0497 969 826 to talk to an officer from the Department of Resources.
