LOGAN City Council is seeking public feedback on a draft framework to guide residential development at Park Ridge South and Chambers Flat.

Park Ridge has been identified by the state government as a growth area to help accommodate a planned population boom across south-east Queensland throughout the next two decades.

That growth would be achieved through expansion, with the latest south-east Queensland 25-year regional plan aiming for "more complete communities" at Park Ridge and other metro areas.

Council has advised that frameworks were put together in response to state government plans for development across both areas.

"In 2009, the Queensland Government earmarked Park Ridge South and Chambers Flat for future development, including it within the 'Urban Footprint in the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2017'," a spokesperson said.

"As the local government authority, council is required to undertake detailed land use and infrastructure planning to support the regional plan."

The spokesperson said landowners and developers were already seeking to make the most of properties in the area.

"We need to guide future development and accommodate the anticipated growth in a way that promotes cohesive, sustainable and efficient land use and provides for healthy, vibrant future communities," the spokesperson said.

Public feedback on council's proposed development frameworks for Park Ridge South and Chambers Flat can be submitted until Friday, March 1.

Council's planning team and councillor Phil Pidgeon will be available to answer questions about the draft plans at two information sessions called 'Meet the Planner'.

The sessions will be hosted Parklands Christian College on Thursday, February 14 from 4pm to 7pm and Saturday, February 16 from 8am to 2pm.
