Brisbane City Plan 2014 mapping

Brisbane City Plan 2014 contains maps showing where provisions of the planning scheme apply across the Brisbane area. Brisbane City Council has also produced an interactive mapping tool. The tool shows zoning, overlays, neighbourhood plans and priority infrastructure plan maps. You should view Brisbane City Plan 2014 mapping in conjunction with the ePlan.

Council regularly updates Brisbane City Plan 2014. The Table of Amendments (Appendix 2) lists essential details. 

Interactive mapping

You can navigate a map of Brisbane showing the local government boundaries. To use the tool you can zoom in to suburb and street level. Switch on different maps or layers to see how a property may be affected by Brisbane City Plan 2014. You can view zoning, overlay, neighbourhood plan and priority infrastructure plan maps. 

The interactive mapping includes current Queensland Government state planning policy mapping. This is used where it supersedes Brisbane City Plan 2014 maps, e.g. the Australian noise enforcement forecast (ANEF) mapping under the Airport environs overlay.

This mapping is inaccessible to website assistive technologies. Phone Council on 07 3403 8888 for assistance accessing or interpreting any of these maps.

Note: accessing the interactive mapping tool via a mobile or tablet device will direct you to a mobile version of the platform. This version is designed for optimal use on small format devices and is not a full-featured version of the interactive mapping tool. For the full-featured version, ensure you access interactive mapping via a desktop or laptop computer.  

To use Council's Brisbane City Plan 2014 interactive mapping, you must accept the terms and conditions of this tool. Refer to the help guide/frequently asked questions (FAQs) for assistance with using this tool.

Open data

You can download Brisbane City Plan 2014 neighbourhood plan, zoning and overlay spatial data. This is available as open data in GIS formats through the Brisbane Open Data website.

Strategic framework maps

Strategic framework maps show Council's vision for long-term land use planning for Brisbane. The strategic framework maps should not be read at the individual property level. They provide a picture of the city shape at a city-wide scale.

Zoning maps

The basis of all planning starts with zoning. City Plan provides zoning maps for all land within the Brisbane City Council area.

Council groups zoning maps by map tile. Refer to the map index to locate the map relevant to your area of interest.

Overlay maps

Overlay maps show either Queensland Government interests or where particular local circumstances are relevant to development. The purpose of overlays is to identify areas that:

  • are sensitive to the effects of development
  • constrain land or development
  • are subject to valuable resources, and/or
  • present opportunities for development.

Within City Plan, overlay mapping relates to overlay codes in Part 8.

Council groups the overlay maps by map tile. Refer to the map index to locate the map relevant to your area of interest.

City Plan includes the following:

Neighbourhood plan maps

Neighbourhood plan maps show the boundary of each neighbourhood plan area, along with any precincts that may be relevant. Within City Plan, neighbourhood plan mapping relates to the Neighbourhood plan codes in Part 7.

Plans for Trunk Infrastructure maps

The plans for trunk infrastructure (PFTI) maps identify existing and proposed trunk infrastructure in the schedule of works. These are intended to service the predicted existing and future residential and non-residential development.

PFTI maps are referenced in s4.5 of Part 4 of Brisbane City Plan 2014.

Council groups the PFTI maps by map tile. Refer to the map index to locate the map relevant to your area of interest.

Other maps

Other maps identify long-term infrastructure areas for the Brisbane Local Government Area. They identify infrastructure required to service development beyond the horizon of the LGIP. Long-term infrastructure maps are referenced in Part 10.3 of Brisbane City Plan 2014.

The other plan maps - long-term infrastructure plans - stormwater network identify infrastructure required to service development beyond the horizon of the LGIP. The other plan maps are referenced in section 10.3.2 stormwater network of Part 10 of Brisbane City Plan 2014.

Council groups the long-term infrastructure plans by map tile. Refer to the map index to locate the map relevant to your area of interest.
