Plainland Crossing retail, entertainment shopping precinct planned in Lockyer Valley

A new shopping, medical and entertainment precinct has been planned for a fast-growing community east of Toowoomba and one of the tenants has already been identified.

One of the fastest-growing communities in the Lockyer Valley could get even bigger, after plans were lodged with the Locker Valley Regional Council to build a new bulk retail, entertainment and medical precinct at Plainland.

Applicant Plainland Crossing submitted the proposal last week for the 13,000 sqm site, which would include space for five major uses and 160 car parks.

Dubbed Plainland Home and Life, the development will include a bulk retail area, indoor entertainment space, medical centre, shop and food outlet.

One tenant in Pet Stock has already been identified as part of the development application.

The development is next door to the new Bunnings Warehouse and Aldi supermarket and forms part of a major cog in the commercial precinct of Plainland as it expands rapidly.

Hundreds of lots have either been sold or are on the market.

More are to be released in the coming years.

Other major commercial developments to come include a massive expansion of the existing Plainland Plaza to about five times its current size.

According to the planning report by Development Directive, the project would cater to the immediate community being created at Plainland.

“The proposed development represents the highest and best use for the site, as it caters for a range of users and provides additional services and amenity to the residents of Plainland,” the report said.

Reports were also submitted with the application into waste management, traffic impacts, engineering and landscaping.

The Lockyer Valley Regional Council has yet to respond to the application.
