Fitzgibbon Chase is a master planned development 12km northeast of Brisbane’s CBD. A flagship project of the Urban Land Development Authority (ULDA), the development aimed to bring land to the market quickly, provide affordable housing, and trial specific innovations for sustainable urban development outcomes.

This development project provided a case study to explore governance issues surrounding the ownership and operation of decentralised water harvesting and treatment systems, and the influence of innovative ideas on land use planning policy.
