A City for Everyone: Draft Inclusive Brisbane Plan 2019-2029

Brisbane City Council is committed to growing your Brisbane lifestyle – regardless of your age, ability or background – so you can do more of what you love and connect with the people and places that make our city great. Our vision is for a city where everyone feels they belong. To achieve this vision, Council has released A City for Everyone: Draft Inclusive Brisbane Plan 2019-2029 for community feedback.

In 2012, Council launched its first access and inclusion plan, Brisbane Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017 and Seniors' Strategy 2012-2017: Delivering a seniors-friendly city, which improved the quality of life of many residents.

Since 2012, Council has invested more than $200 million in implementing these plans and has delivered:

  • wheelchair and pram accessible CityCats and buses
  • funding for 127 community programs
  • seven accessible aqua play facilities
  • wheelchair and pram accessible community halls
  • 40 all-abilities playgrounds
  • more than 250,000 trips in Council Cabs
  • weekly English conversation groups in libraries
  • funding for more than 250 multicultural festivals.

Together we have achieved a lot, but there is more to be done.

About the draft plan

The draft plan builds on Council's past achievements, focusing on the issues highlighted by residents, community groups and service providers that remain a priority.

The draft plan proposes 67 possible actions under five themes that aim to make Brisbane an easier city for everyone to connect, work, live, enjoy and engage with.
