The Region belongs to all of us so let's be part of planning for its future!


Creating our future together

Nestled on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, the Toowoomba Region is truly a spectacular place to live, work, play and visit. We’re a Region of rich agriculture, historic towns and diverse landscapes. Vibrant, family-friendly and full of opportunity, it’s no surprise that our population is likely to grow by more than 55,000 over the next 30 years.

We’re building a community of the future. It’s important that we plan the services and facilities we’ll need as our Region grows. This means planning new infrastructure like roads, water and waste services and facilities like libraries, swimming pools and parks. We also need to work together to protect the landscapes we love and the lifestyle we hold dear.

Toowoomba Region Futures is about building a community vision for our Region’s future. This shared vision will help ensure our vibrant Region thrives for the next 30 years and beyond. It will help us:

  • define what land can be used for, e.g. housing, farming or industry
  • control how land can be developed, e.g. converting an office into a retail shop
  • identify infrastructure like water, sewerage and transport networks needed to support existing and emerging communities
  • protect our natural, rural and urban landscapes and areas of cultural significance.

Toowoomba Region Futures will develop a new Toowoomba Region Planning Scheme, a Growth Plan and a Toowoomba Region Infrastructure Plan. To find out more about these initiatives, check out our frequently asked questions section.
