3D Mapping Model

The planning reform program that delivered the Planning Act 2016 also provided additional opportunities for state-wide planning innovation and improvement through an Innovation and Improvement Fund. In early 2017, the Queensland State Government made $4.5 million available to local governments for financial assistance for new and improved ways of delivering planning. Townsville City Council was successful in obtaining funding for 3D Modelling of Townsville’s Priority Infill Areas project in Round 2.

The objective of the 3D Modelling of Townsville’s Priority Infill Areas was to deliver a GIS-based 3D Model for Townsville’s priority infill areas, including the CBD and inner city areas.

Areas included in the 3D Model of Townsville’s Priority Infill Areas include:

  • Townsville’s CBD;
  • The Strand;
  • Parts of North Ward;
  • Parts of South Townsville; and
  • Parts of Railway Estate.
