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 Eight Mile Plains gateway area is one of the city’s key employment hubs with advanced manufacturing and technology parks that contribute to the city’s economic growth. The area also provides the southern gateway to Brisbane and is well connected to the region by the Gateway and Pacific motorways and Logan Road.

Council is proposing a new neighbourhood plan for this area to plan for the changing needs of the community for the next 10 years and beyond. The draft neighbourhood plan responds to opportunities associated with significant transport infrastructure investment, including the future Brisbane Metro station. It also provides for housing choice, protection of important environment and a new gateway business precinct.

Project status

The draft neighbourhood plan was released for community consultation between Monday 8 November – Monday 6 December 2021. All feedback received is now being reviewed to determine whether changes are required to the draft neighbourhood plan.

Next steps

Council will review the draft neighbourhood plan provisions based on submissions received. The revised neighbourhood plan will then be sent to the Queensland Government for review.

Once these reviews are complete the plan will be presented to Council and subsequently adopted as part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan).
