Brisbane Vision 2031 is Brisbane City Council's long-term community plan for our city. It details our aspirations and outlines targets for Brisbane in 2031.

Our vision is:

Brisbane will continue to be a safe, vibrant, green and prosperous city. A city valued by all for its friendly, energetic and optimistic character and subtropical outdoor lifestyle. Brisbane will be respected for its strong international relationships, particularly with our Asian neighbours, for its boundless innovation and growing economic prosperity.

Council is working hard to plan and deliver services and projects that help make Brisbane a great place to live and do business and that meet our aspirations for the city. Use this page to find information on recent awards, programs and projects that are helping Brisbane achieve its vision.
