Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan

On 19 November 2019, Brisbane City Council adopted an amendment  to Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) to incorporate the Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan. The amendment came into effect on Friday 28 February 2020.

Plan highlights

The neighbourhood plan will guide future development in the plan area. Highlights of the plan include: 

  • maintaining strong building height controls to preserve views to and from the Story Bridge
  • rezoning land under the Story Bridge from high density residential to community purposes, promoting the creative use of space underneath the bridge
  • facilitating mixed-use development in focused areas along Main Street to promote new businesses and services
  • protecting two additional properties through the City Plan Heritage Overlay 
  • protecting more trees through the City Plan Significant Landscape Tree Overlay.

Brisbane's Future Blueprint

Carefully planning for a growing city means stronger communities, more local jobs and affordable housing in a Brisbane that’s sustainable for future generations.

After input from more than 100,000 residents, in June 2018 Council released Brisbane's Future Blueprint with eight principles to guide Brisbane’s future growth. One of these principles is creating a city of neighbourhoods where residents are close to the services they need and the lifestyle and leisure options they want.

Council creates plans like the Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan to help make this long-term vision a reality.
