City Snapshot

City snapshot provides a census of the Land use/activity occurring on every property located within the Logan Local Government Area as at June 2021. The snapshot is presented in two broad categories being residential and non-residential.

For properties with a residential land use/activity, the number of dwellings is recorded or the number of bedrooms for specific residential uses such as care facilities.

For properties with a non-residential land use/activity, the Gross Floor Area (GFA) is recorded. If a property has both a residential and non-residential land use/activity, all of the above are recorded.

*Please note: Land use/activity is based on what is actually occurring on the property as at June 2021. Land use/activity is not Logan Planning Scheme (2015) zoning.
