Let’s talk about Frankton!

What would make Frankton a great place to live, work and play? The Frankton Masterplan community conversation has now started and QLDC want to understand what residents want out of Frankton now and in years to come. The Masterplan will take a holistic view of Frankton and consider options to ensure it remains liveable now and in the future.  It will also include a preferred programme of transport improvements to ensure good access both to and through Frankton.

QLDC is teaming up with Shaping our Future and the Frankton Community Association to facilitate a Community Forum on the Frankton Masterplan. Come and join us on Tuesday 25 September at 7.00pm at Remarkables Primary School Hall, 49 Lake Avenue, Frankton.


Your ideas and insights are a critical part of the process. Share your views from 10 September-5 October and help shape a vision to guide and Frankton Masterplan process. Jump online today and answer 3 quick questions
