Cannon Hills Community Links Development Project

Brisbane City Council is working with BMD Properties Pty Ltd (BMD) to deliver a public golf course and residential precinct in Cannon Hill.

Project summary

Address 1825 Creek Road, Cannon Hill
Ward Doboy
Project outcome Delivery of a new public golf course and residential precinct to the Cannon Hill area.

Latest update

Construction of the residential precinct (stages 2, 3 and 4) started in late 2016 and are expected to be completed by late 2017, weather and construction conditions permitting.

The new public golf course will be Brisbane's first public golf course in 70 years and the only public golf course south of the Brisbane River. The golf course will be similar in specification to Council's existing golf courses such as St Lucia and Victoria Park.

As part of the project, BMD was responsible for remediating the former Cannon Hill tip prior to construction of the residential precinct and golf course. Remediation works were fully funded by Council.

The cost to construct the golf course will be funded entirely from proceeds of the residential development.

Works started in May 2015 and are anticipated to be completed by 2019. The project includes the following stages:

  1. Remediation works
    Works commenced in May 2015 and were completed in July 2016.

Project update - fencing and habitat works

Temporary fencing for the approved habitat development and residential development components of the Cannon Hill Community Links project was installed in September 2016. The fencing was installed to ensure public safety and to delineate areas of bushland to be retained and enhanced as part of the project. The site will not be publicly accessible while works are underway.

Habitat development works commenced in August 2016 and include clearing of weed species, planting native plants and installation of fauna protection fencing along the Creek Road frontage of the site. Habitat management works will continue throughout the project. Works will generally occur between 6.30am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.

Environmental impacts

Works will be undertaken in accordance with an approved environmental management plan. Council will support BMD in the implementation of the plan to ensure all necessary precautionary measures are undertaken to minimise environmental impacts.

Development approval conditions have also been imposed to ensure appropriate rehabilitation is undertaken and that all habitats are managed and ecological features are preserved.

The environmental management plan includes provision for the amelioration of impacts to the squirrel glider population within the project site.

The adjacent Minnippi Parklands, Preston Road Park and Meadowlands Picnic Ground will not be impacted by the development.
