Brisbane's business precincts are alive with opportunity as our city looks toward the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games and beyond. Planning and supporting active and attractive business precincts will help preseve what we love about Brisbane neighbourhoods and precincts, but also help to enhance their value for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Business owners can access tools and resources developed by Brisbane City Council to help attract more visitors to Brisbane's business precincts.

How to make precincts more attractive and connected - playbook

Practical advice and information for communities, businesses, local groups, property owners, and other organisations to make their local centre more active, attractive and connected.

Pop-up shops

Suburban renewal precincts

Building on the success of Council's neighbourhood planning program, suburban renewal precincts focus on unlocking underutilised land in suburban areas.

Attract new tenants to your vacant shopfront with Vibrantly Vacant, a citywide program where property owners/agents can apply to have themed decals installed on the front windows of the premises.
