What Next For Toombul?

Community members are encouraged to have their say on the future of Toombul. The shopping centre has been closed since the February floods.

Toombul's closure has devastated retailers and left northside consumers without an important shopping hub. The knock-on effects have seen considerable increases in traffic around Chermside, with visitors to that centre spending hours getting out of car parks on weekends.

Toombul's owners, Mirvac, have launched a community consultation as part of their plans to renew the site. Residents can respond online to the consultation. In addition, Mirvac is holding several drop-in sessions at local markets and community venues over the coming weeks.

Mirvac says: "The outcomes of community consultation, along with planning outcomes and commercial considerations, will inform decisions about the future of the Toombul site."

Northgate Ward Councillor, Adam Allan, said the consultation represented an excellent opportunity for the community to contribute and ensure a great outcome is achieved.

"We have been chatting with Mirvac over recent months about their plans for Toombul. The site presents a wide range of options, including uses such as retail, commercial and residential offerings, to name a few.

"We have several items that we have been clear about in our discussions, such as including key retail and service offerings, improved flood resilience, public transport, accessibility and green space," he said.
