Advancing our cities and regions inclusion

Economic Development Queensland continues to have an interest in the site as an urban renewal precinct under the Advancing our cities and regions strategy and presents a unique opportunity to revitalise the site to address local needs.

Community engagement

Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) will be holding two information sessions providing residents and interested parties with an opportunity to review a proposed concept and associated design principles for the redevelopment of the former school site.

Under the Brisbane City Council's City Plan, the former Oxley Secondary College site is currently included within the community facilities (education purpose) zone.

Other than temporary use as government offices during the fire ant eradication program, the school buildings have remained dormant since the college closed in 2000.

The former Oxley Secondary College occupies 19.28 hectares and was declared surplus to government needs in 2001.

Since April 2016 EDQ, on behalf of the Queensland Government, has engaged with the local Oxley residents and business owners regarding future land use options for the former secondary college site.

EDQ is committed to working with the Oxley community to explore the best land use options for the unused site and to provide the neighbourhood with a functional and vibrant space.

The site remains in the ownership of the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.
