Bridgeman Downs Neighbourhood Plan
Brisbane City Council is working with residents and businesses to create a new neighbourhood plan for Bridgeman Downs. Neighbourhood plans help guide future development and coordinate land use and infrastructure over a 10-year period and beyond. Once complete, the neighbourhood plan will become part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan).
The neighbourhood plan is being prepared to ensure Bridgeman Downs' future looks familiar, while planning for the needs of existing and future communities. Council is working to ensure the plan meets community priorities.
Project update - September 2022
The draft plan was released for community consultation from Monday 14 February to Monday 28 March 2022.
Council reviewed all submissions and made changes in response, including:
- changes to provide further guidance on limitations regarding multiple dwellings in the Emerging community zone
- changes to figures and supporting provisions to refine potential development areas and areas with identified biodiversity, waterway and corridor values
- changes to zones to support community facilities and low density residential uses
- changes to the Waterway corridors overlay mapping to reflect reviews of specific sites
- changes to the Heritage overlay mapping to better define the area to be protected for local heritage values
- other drafting changes in the neighbourhood plan code to better align with the planning scheme and to address submissions and new planning information.
The revised neighbourhood plan is now with the Queensland Government for final review, which may result in additional changes.
Once these reviews are complete, the plan will be presented to Council and subsequently adopted as part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan).
