Accessibility projects at community leased facilities

Brisbane City Council is committed to improving the lifestyle of Brisbane residents, including accessibility improvements across Council venues, infrastructure and spaces. Since 2011, Council has carried out more than $268 million worth of accessibility enhancements to our city.

Council’s A City for Everyone: Inclusive Brisbane Plan 2019-2029 outlines actions that will make Brisbane more inclusive for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. These actions include improving accessibility at facilities leased from Council by sporting clubs, cultural organisations, and a large variety of other community groups.

In 2020-2021 Council has installed inclusive features at:
