Neighbourhood planning and urban renewal

Brisbane City Council creates neighbourhood plans, with input from residents and business owners. They are legal documents that guide housing in an area and sit within Council's planning scheme, Brisbane City Plan 2014.

Council considers local environmental, social and economic factors, along with the management of population growth, when preparing a neighbourhood plan. The plans help facilitate economic prosperity, protect character development and provide for open space. They include standards for new development and reflect improved infrastructure such as new transport routes.
