Using the Centres Detail Design Manual

The superseded Centres Detail Design Manual deals with design matters including: 

  • footways - footpath, kerb, planting and street furniture
  • lanes, cross-block links, corner land dedications and buildouts
  • public art contributions.

The manual is divided into four chapters:

  1. Using the manual: this chapter sets out who should use the manual and how to navigate, the document structure and contact details.
  2. Locality advice: this chapter includes all centres in Brisbane where guidance is available for upgrading footways and locations where public art contributions are required.
  3. Streetscape design: section A details the citywide streetscape hierarchy. Section B provides guidance on elements and materials for footway upgrades.
  4. Technical details: this chapter provides additional technical information for the elements and materials outlined in Section B.
