The Oonoonba Priority Development Area (PDA) was declared on 23 April 2010. It is an 83ha site approximately three kilometres south of the Townsville CBD, bounded by the Ross River to the north and west, the railway line and Abbot Street road corridor to the east, and established homes along Riverwood Drive and Viewpoint Terrace to the south.
Development on the site will provide a range of housing choices to cater for the diverse needs of the Townsville community through a mix of densities, types, designs, price points and home ownership and rental options.
Note: In February 2013, the Urban Land Development Act 2007 (ULDA Act) was repealed and replaced with the Economic Development Act 2012 (ED Act). From then on, land areas identified for priority development were referred to as Priority Development Areas (PDAs), not Urban Development Areas (UDAs), and existing UDAs were transitioned to PDAs under the ED Act. Any reference to the term UDA on this website is taken to mean a transitioned UDA, which is now known as a PDA.
