A better way to work

A commitment to renew and repurpose government land in Logan is set to deliver more affordable and diverse housing while creating jobs, economic growth and better community outcomes.

Delivered as a partnership between the Department of Housing and Public Works and Economic Development Queensland, the Better Neighbourhoods Logan project is connecting other government departments, agencies, not-for-profit providers and private industry partners to improve housing diversity and better meet people’s needs.

The program will generate nearly $1 billion in housing investment in the community— more than 3,300 new social and affordable dwellings for the people of Logan.

The Queensland Government is working with Logan City Council and other local stakeholders to identify and act on opportunities to revitalise urban spaces and encourage local participation in development projects.

While development and urban revitalisation will deliver improved housing diversity, Better Neighbourhoods Logan will work with local human service and support organisations to strengthen service delivery through a coordinated, person-centred approach.

The investment is projected to support around 2,400 full-time jobs in the community over the next 20 years, while creating inclusive communities with better streetscapes, greater economic activity and a strong sense of community and place.
