Citywide amendment - Heritage places and city views

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 adopted a package of amendments to some of its citywide provisions with the Heritage places and city views amendment (Major amendment package F).

The amendments package

The amendment package followed the 'major amendment' process as outlined in the Queensland Government's Minister’s Guidelines and Rules.

The package of changes includes:

  • amendments of both the Heritage and Pre-1911 building overlays to incorporate up to date information gathered as part of Council’s ongoing review of the city’s heritage.
  • recognition of the city’s key civic spaces and iconic vistas by including a new Key civic space and iconic vista overlay code and map.
