Scenic Rim Mayor John Brent says council has been given approval to finalise a development scheme for the Bromelton Park industrial park near Beaudesert.
It has been four years since the Queensland Government earmarked 1,800 hectares for the development.
Councillor Brent says a state development scheme for the area should soon be finalised but there is more to do before work can begin.
"I had hoped that the work starts would have been by 2012 but I suppose we all like to anticipate an early start," he said.
"I know the owners of the land are as keen as mustard to ensure they can roll out the necessary infrastructure on site as soon as [possible]."
Cr Brent says Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney has signed off on a state interest review of the structure plan which is an important step for the project.
"This is about 15,000 new jobs in the next 20 years in an area located strategically on the interstate rail line between Brisbane and Sydney," he said.
"[It's] in a great location that will allow it to become the largest industrial park in Australia."
