New development requirements for Yamanto have been adopted by Council following consultation with land owners about the future of residential and commercial growth in their area.
Planning and Development Committee Chair, Councillor Paul Tully said the new requirements provided the framework for the ongoing residential and commercial growth of the Yamanto Central area.
"Yamanto is set to become one of the major centres of residential and commercial life in Ipswich in line with Council's vision of a city of centres," Cr Tully said.
"The guidelines will ensure that people in Yamanto have access to first-class services and retail outlets close to where they live. This is a bold vision for growth of retail, commercial business, community and housing surrounding a public transport hub."
"After proposing these guidelines in December Council has been actively consulting with landowners about their area's future and their aspirations for the local community. Following this process, these views have been noted and incorporated into the new guidelines."
"This planning is vital to the future of Yamanto, especially in preparation for the proposed rail corridor that will bring further development and opportunities to the local area."
