Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan

Following input and feedback from the community, Brisbane City Council has updated the Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan and submitted the neighbourhood plan to the Queensland Government for final review.

Following Queensland Government approval, the neighbourhood plan will be adopted as part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) to guide future development in the plan area.

Project update

From 5 October to 19 November 2018, Council released the Kangaroo Point Peninsula draft Neighbourhood Plan for community comment, receiving 77 submissions. Key feedback from the community engagement included:

  • support for maintaining building height restrictions to preserve views to and from the Story Bridge
  • requests to accommodate a dog-off-leash area and community garden in the peninsula
  • requests to complete the Brisbane Riverwalk between Mowbray Park and Dockside
  • concern regarding the listing of 355 Main Street on the Heritage overlay
  • concern regarding the application of the Active frontages in residential zones overlay.

The neighbourhood plan has been updated in response to community feedback. A copy of the updated neighbourhood plan and report on submissions is provided below, as well as a copy of the revised heritage citation for 355 Main Street.

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.
