Economic Development Queensland
Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is the state government’s streamlined business unit for residential, urban and industrial development with its primary focus to facilitate economic development throughout Queensland.
EDQ replaced the former Urban Land Development Authority (ULDA) and Property Services Group (PSG). EDQ has continued the development activities of those bodies and identified new projects which include development outcomes.
EDQ plays a key role in streamlining and fast-tracking development throughout the state with expertise in a range of development activities.
EDQ also undertakes a strategic planning function for priority development areas (PDAs). It works closely with local governments to undertake planning within PDAs and, where appropriate, provisional priority development areas (PPDAs).
