Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan

Brisbane City Council is creating the Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan. This location is a key economic growth area for the city and includes parts of Eight Mile Plains and Rochedale.

The new neighbourhood plan includes land that supports future transport infrastructure including the Brisbane Metro station and depot and nearby residential and commercial areas. The plan also reflects the area’s status as an employment hub for advanced technology and manufacturing in key locations, close to major transport corridors.
