Brisbane City Council has adopted amendments to Brisbane City Plan 2014 to include a new Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP), which took effect on 29 June 2018.
The new Local Government Infrastructure Plan 2016-2026 replaces the previous LGIP (previously known as the Priority Infrastructure Plan). It also changes from a 20-year planning horizon to a 10-year horizon as part of adapting to legislative changes.
As part of the amendment process, the LGIP went through an independent review and was open for public consultation in late 2017. Submissions received were related to matters including traffic, stormwater, requests for additional parks and infrastructure charges. Read the report on submissions.
The LGIP includes around 1000 projects worth $2 billion for stormwater, transport, parks and land for community facilities from 2016 to 2026.
It will also provide developers with an indication of likely infrastructure required as part of any proposed new developments, to ensure infrastructure keeps up with future growth.
Council has also adopted a separate City Plan major amendment for long term infrastructure to retain planning for future growth beyond June 2026. The long term infrastructure plans also became effective on 29 June 2018.
Is my property affected?
You can check Council's online mapping to see if property may be affected, or call the Infrastructure Coordination team for assistance on 07 3403 8888.
Under the LGIP, if a development application is lodged for a property that is affected, it means that Council may impose a condition to make sure infrastructure within the LGIP is provided to Council.
