Proposed citywide amendment - Major amendment package E
Brisbane is a great place to live, work and relax. To ensure our friendly and liveable city continues to thrive and Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) remains effective and up-to-date, Brisbane City Council is proposing amendments to some of its citywide provisions with Major amendment package E.
Through amendments to City Plan, Council ensures planning decisions continue to reflect principles developed with community input, including protecting our city’s backyards and unique character, and creating and protecting greenspace.
The proposed amendments include changes across a range of citywide provisions, including:
- car share
- industry provisions
- major transport infrastructure – Council controlled road tunnels
- multiple dwellings
- significant landscape trees
- Special Entertainment Areas
- the Emerging community zone
- transport air quality corridors
- waterway corridors
- mapping – including zoning and overlays.
The amendment package is following the major amendment process as outlined in the Queensland Government's guideline for Making and amending local planning instruments.
Council endorsed changes to the proposed amendments following a review of submissions and has referred the amendments to the Queensland Government for a final state interest review.
Council's proposed amendments package was open for public consultation from 5 March to 12 April 2019. Council held three public consultation events and received a total of 37 submissions.
In response to matters raised in the submissions, Council made the following changes to:
- clarify the car share definition in the Transport, access, parking and servicing planning scheme policy that car share spaces are to be for the exclusive use of residents in multiple dwelling and rooming accommodation developments
- add notes in the Structure plan planning scheme policy to guide the calculation of dwelling density
- clarify the private and communal open space area calculations, deep planting outcomes and built to boundary wall requirements in the Multiple dwelling code
- clarify the Vegetation planning scheme policy that professional qualifications are needed to identify significant landscape trees
- remove two out of date transport air quality models in the Air quality planning scheme policy
- improve the accuracy of the equation that accounts for the chemical transformations of oxides to nitrogen and further clarification on the selection of the correct diurnal traffic profile in the Air quality planning scheme policy
- remove tree species that are no longer present on particular properties in the Significant landscape tree overlay code and rectify inconsistencies with the overlay map.
