Meridan Plains land acquisition

214 hectare land acquisition - Meridan Plains

Council has made a $9.5 million land acquisition to expand our green spaces.

Council acquired 214 hectares on Rainforest Drive, Meridan Plains to expand our green spaces for recreation, sport and conservation purposes.

The land is a long-term strategic acquisition and its final land uses will be determined through a future site assessment and master planning process.

The acquisition is a valuable contribution to plan and protect the emerging Lower Mooloolah River green space – one of council’s five major green spaces and building on the existing public lands in this area.

Lower Mooloolah River green space is approximately 3000 hectares of non-urban land located east of the Bruce Highway, extending north to Buderim and Palmview, south to Caloundra Road and east to Kawana.  It provides an important sub-regional inter-urban break which maintains openness, provides the boundary for the urban footprint and provides relief from the surrounding urban landscape.
