Citywide amendment - Increased car parking for suburban multiple dwellings
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 increase car parking for suburban multiple dwellings (Amendment package J).
The amendment package
This citywide amendment package is designed to change the provisions in the Transport, access, parking and servicing planning scheme policy to increase the amount of car parks needed in new multiple dwelling developments in suburban areas.
Key changes include increasing to 2 parking spaces for 2 and 3 bedroom units and 2.5 parking spaces for 4 or more bedroom units. Visitor parking is also being increased to 0.25 spaces.
The amendment package followed the 'amendment to a planning scheme policy' process as outlined in the Queensland Government's Minister's Guidelines and Rules.
The amendment package was publicly notified for submissions from 29 July to 26 August 2019. Council did not make any changes to the amendment package as a result of submissions.
