Bundamba Creek Corridor Plan
Ipswich City Council
The Bundamba Creek Corridor flows through rural, industrial and established urban suburbs and provides multiple functions including cultural and recreational connections, vegetation and habitat, waterway connectivity and water quality.
Major development is planned to occur within the corridor over the next 20-30 years which will put pressure on the waterway corridor. It will need to be a stable and healthy waterway corridor which can convey catchment flows, support vegetation and provide habitat, incorporate key recreational spaces and connections and also stormwater management where possible. Through this project, all of these elements were layered and considered holistically to build an integrated picture of the corridor which identified areas of competing outcomes and also opportunity.
A common vision and objectives to guide the future transformation of the corridor was developed by project stakeholders and a range of actions were developed to support this. These actions responded to the key directional focus identified for three main corridor sections which will provide differing primary functions.
The project outcomes were documented in a highly graphic corridor plan which can be used by Council to communicate their vision and preferred outcomes for the corridor with the relevant stakeholders.
