The Brisbane Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017 is one of many medium term strategic plans that detail how Council is working towards the Living in Brisbane 2026 vision. Living in Brisbane 2026 is the vision that Council shares with the people of Brisbane. All of Council's forward planning is guided by this vision.





Brisbane is a youthful and enthusiastic city - spanning city to bay and hills to bush. It is appreciated by residents and visitors for its friendliness and optimism, and respected for its leadership and achievements.

Brisbane's leadership in civic governance and technology will deliver active and healthy communities, drive a strong economy, sustain a clean and green environment, create a city of cultural vibrancy and provide an enduring legacy of liveability for future generations.
