What the Priority Development Area means for CQUniversity Rockhampton

In the past fortnight, the State Government has approved the proposed plan for the CQUniversity Rockhampton Priority Development Area.

After a period of consultation between the Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning with relevant stakeholders, CQUniversity has withdrawn its previous objections, and is now in support of the proposed plan. We believe this development will benefit the University and create a more vibrant atmosphere on campus - which will in turn help us to attract more students locally, from outside the region and internationally.

In future, as CQUniversity continues to strengthen its ties with its communities, I really believe this development will see the Rockhampton campus become a central hub for this community, incorporating educational, commercial, community and recreational facilities.

The approval of this plan signals the beginning of what will be an ongoing process for CQUniversity and I will endeavour to ensure all of our stakeholders including staff, students, commercial operators and traditional owners are kept up-to-date with all information as soon as it comes to light.
