Abstract A large scale urban model (LSUM) has been developed for the Brisbane-south East Queensland (SEQ) region to simulate potential future patterns of population and dwelling construction and the location of economic activity and jobs in industry sectors at a spatially disaggregated level of scale up to the year 2026. This paper provides a brief overview of the development of the LSUM for the SEQ region and illustrates how model outputs may be simulate likely spatial patterns under a number of different planning and development scenarios. The paper also demonstrated how model outcomes may be used to evaluate the implications of different planning scenarios and shows how model outputs may be used to inform planning for the provision of urban services.
