Brisbane City Plan 2014 project background

Brisbane City Plan 2014 commenced on 30 June 2014, after the largest city-wide public consultation program in Brisbane in more than a decade. Brisbane City Council received over 2700 submissions during the 60-day public consultation phase, which closed at midnight on 30 July 2013.

In the first week of February 2014, Council met to consider all of the feedback received in submissions. After considering all feedback and making some changes as a result of submissions, Council approved and later adopted the Brisbane City Plan 2014.

The plan also responded to government policies and projects, including: 

  • South East Queensland Regional Plan

In preparing the strategic framework, best practice in planning and urban design, detailed modelling of development, population and statistics were considered. The framework draws upon expert advice on topics ranging from traffic to design to air quality.
