Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) identifies infrastructure needs within and for priority development areas (PDA) to ensure PDAs are appropriately serviced for development to occur. EDQ has established a funding framework that ensures there is adequate funding to invest in vital infrastructure for the community, encourage development and provides certainty on infrastructure charges. EDQ works closely with local governments and private enterprise to plan and deliver these infrastructure requirements within the funding framework.
EDQ will also co-invest in infrastructure projects across Queensland where there is an economic benefit to the community through the creation of long term employment and acceleration of development. EDQ delivers these initiatives through the Catalyst Infrastructure Program (CIP).
