Citywide update - amendment package A
Brisbane City Council is delivering on a strong plan to ensure our city has the services and infrastructure to meet the needs of future generations and continues to be a great place to live, work and relax.
As part of Council’s commitment to ensure that Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) remains effective and up-to-date, Council adopted a package of amendments to some of its citywide provisions on Tuesday 28 November 2017.
Highlights of the amendment package
The amendments were made to:
- improve the management of the interface between sensitive and industrial uses
- increase provisions for addressing local circumstances of topography and flood immunity in relation to the height of dwelling houses
- improve refuse collection, traditional building character, heritage and pre-1911 provisions
- refine the operation of biodiversity areas overlay provisions and align with the Queensland Government’s Environmental Offsets Act 2014
- strengthen measures to ensure existing infrastructure (e.g. the Story Bridge) is protected from encroachment by development to ensure it can be maintained
- improve the rooming accommodation, reconfiguring a lot, prescribed accepted development and neighbourhood plan provisions
- update zoning maps and overlays including the Dwelling house character overlay, Heritage overlay, Pre-1911 building overlay and Traditional building character overlay.
