Ministerial Infrastructure Designation

Plans to improve our facilities 

To help us achieve our aim to deliver an outstanding College experience for our students and families, we have been developing a draft masterplan, in collaboration with our community and key stakeholders, to help guide our future. Importantly, this draft masterplan aims to balance built form and open space across the College through appropriate building transitions and height limits, preserving our unique natural bushland setting and ensuring suitable interfaces with our neighbours to align with community expectations.

Proposed Ministerial Infrastructure Designation

Moreton Bay Boys' College has requested that the Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning designate our premises at 302 Manly Road, Manly West as a Ministerial Infrastructure Designation (MID). This request is being made under Schedule 5, Part 2 of the Planning Act 2016.  

The designation will be for the purposes of:

  • Education facilities; and
  • Facilities at which an education and care service under the Education and care Services National Law (Queensland) is operated. 

The proposed MID has been requested in accordance with Chapter 2, Part 5 of the Planning Act 2016. If the designation is approved it will reflect what the College uses the land for today.  

A copy of the early consultation Preliminary Masterplan can be downloaded here. Further information is available on the Proposed MID Information Sheet for the College.  

Retaining our natural setting

The project will not involve any clearing of the eastern ecological zone. Some clearing of existing planted vegetation will occur in our campus area, outside of the eastern ecological zone. Any koala food trees will be retained whether in the ecological zone or not. New buildings identified in the draft masterplan will be located to protect the natural setting and the amenity of our neighbours.
These buildings will include:

  • new administration building and reception area
  • Senior School learning suite and breakout rooms
  • new roof over existing sporting courts
  • small auditorium space with multimedia lab
  • small gym extension incorporating shaded areas and seating
  • new Middle and Secondary School learning precincts incorporating staff collaboration and planning spaces
  • new sports pavilions adjoining the existing oval
  • new left‐out vehicle access to Manly Road
  • new business centre spanning over existing car parks
  • eco-friendly pavilion for environmental education

This early consultation period will be open for your comments until 9 December 2019. 

It is important to note that formal community consultation will also be undertaken later as part of the MID process. This will provide neighbours, key stakeholders and residents with the opportunity to make a submission or simply learn more about our preliminary masterplan.
