Caboolture West is Council’s single biggest growth area. Over the next 40 years it is envisaged the area will become a regional city of 70,000 residents, complete with walkable neighbourhoods containing a range of housing types, employment opportunities, environmental values, community and open space facilities, and activity centres.

The significance of Caboolture West as a growth area is reflected in:

  • the Queensland Government’s declaration of Caboolture West as a Master Planned Area in February 2012
  • Council’s inclusion of the Caboolture West Local Plan within Council’s Planning Scheme in 2016
  • the Queensland Government’s identification of Caboolture West as a Major Expansion Area and High Priority Growth Area in Shaping SEQ South East Queensland Regional Plan 2017
  • the announcement by the State Government in March 2021 that Neighbourhood Development Plan No. 1 of the Caboolture West local plan as a pilot site for a future growth program in South East Queensland.

The Caboolture West local plan area is approximately 5km west of Caboolture and Morayfield, bounded by the D’Aguilar Highway to the north, Caboolture River Road to the south and low hills to the west of Old North Road.
