The Roma Priority Development Area (PDA) was declared on 30 July 2010. It is located on 20 hectares at Bowen Street, Roma approximately 1.5 kilometres west of the Roma Town Centre.
The eastern portion of the site includes six hectares which are zoned either residential or recreation under the Roma Town Planning Scheme 2006.
The western portion of the Roma PDA is comprised of a large road reserve corridor which is understood to have been historically used as a stock route.
Note: In February 2013, the Urban Land Development Act 2007 (ULDA Act) was repealed and replaced with the Economic Development Act 2012 (ED Act).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.
