What is the Toowoomba Region Futures program?

We’re expecting around 55,000 new residents in our Region in the next 30 years and Toowoomba Region Futures is a plan to ensure our enviable lifestyle is here to enjoy for generations to come.

The program will deliver a new planning scheme, an Infrastructure Plan and a Growth Plan, which together will provide a roadmap for managing urban growth throughout the Region.

Don’t wait for something you don’t like. Our tomorrow is being shaped right now and this is your chance to be part of it!

  • Creating our future together

    We’re building a community of the future. It’s important that we plan the infrastructure, services and facilities we’ll need as our Region grows. We also need to work together to protect the landscapes we love and the lifestyle we hold dear. The Region belongs to all of us so let’s all be part of planning for its future.

  • Toowoomba Region Futures 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.
  • We'd love to hear from you!
