Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan

Brisbane City Council has prepared the Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan. This location is a key economic growth area for the city and includes parts of Eight Mile Plains and Rochedale.

The Eight Mile Plains gateway area is one of the city’s key employment hubs with advanced manufacturing and technology parks that contribute to the city’s economic growth. The area also provides the southern gateway to Brisbane and is well connected to the region by the Gateway and Pacific motorways and Logan Road.

The new neighbourhood plan for this area was created to plan for the changing needs of the community for the next 10 years and beyond. The plan responds to opportunities associated with significant transport infrastructure investment, including the future Brisbane Metro station. It also provides for housing choice, protection of important environmental values and also provides for a new gateway business precinct.

Project status

The revised neighbourhood plan was sent to the Queensland Government for Minister's consideration. After receiving the plan back from the Queensland Government, the plan was presented to Council on 1 November 2022 and received support to proceed to adoption.

The new Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan took effect in Brisbane City Plan 2014(City Plan) on 2 December 2022.
