Subtropical design and transit oriented development (TOD) are key policies of the South East Queensland Regional Plan (SEQRP).1 TOD has slowly gained ground in South East Queensland (SEQ) since the mid-?1990s and is now achieving acceptance in debate and decisions surrounding infrastructure investment and urban development. Since the late 1990s, subtropical design has been actively promoted by the Urban Design Alliance Queensland (UDAL/Q) and the Centre for Subtropical Design (CSD) at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), assuming greater prominence since being incorporated in the first SEQRP in 2005.
