Planning Services Development Activity Reports

Council will prepare and display yearly and quarterly Planning Services Development Activity Reports below.

Quarterly Development Activity Reports

The following report provides a snapshot of development data for each quarter. The data is compared with 2020 and 2019, to provide meaningful insight into the development activity and associated trends in the Townsville local government area.

2020 Year in Review

At the beginning of 2020, Townsville was continuing with recovery efforts in the aftermath of the 2019 flood event. While causing significant damage to many homes and businesses, the event also provided stimulus to a sluggish residential construction industry. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated public health restrictions in early 2020 also had an impact on the property and
development sector due to the uncertainty in the economy.
