City Centre Neighbourhood Plan

On Tuesday 14 February 2017, Council adopted the City Centre Neighbourhood Plan together with consequential amendments to Brisbane City Plan 2014. The plan became effective on Friday 24 March 2017.

The plan translates some of the strategies of the City Centre Master Plan 2014 into more specific rules for development, in accordance with the Sustainable Planning Act 2009.

The plan seeks to be simple and streamlined. It is intended to:

  • accommodate growth and economic development
  • encourage sustainable and subtropical design
  • promote good design that responds to its urban context
  • create vibrant, high quality, and pedestrian-scale streetscapes framed by low-scale permeable ‘street buildings’
  • deliver laneways, arcades and small scale spaces to improve public realm and pedestrian permeability.


Hemmant-Lytton Neighbourhood Plan

On 28 February 2017, Council adopted amendments to Brisbane City Plan 2014 to include the updated Hemmant-Lytton Neighbourhood Plan together with necessary consequential amendments. The amendments commenced on 24 March 2017.

Hemmant-Lytton is a key economic and employment growth area for our city. The aim of the neighbourhood plan is to foster economic growth while recognising the value of the natural environment and the existing residential community.

Highlights of the plan include:

  • facilitating industrial development, including marine industry along the riverfront of the Brisbane River
  • reinforcing the existing residential and semi-rural lifestyle areas in other parts of the plan area south of the rail line
  • adding a new park along Aquarium Avenue and upgrading Paul Conti Park
  • protecting pre-1946 houses in Hemmant village
  • delivering a well-ordered system of non-urban-zoned land that responds to the ecological values and the hydrology of the Bulimba Creek catchment
  • planning for future infrastructure to deal with drainage issues
  • managing risks and hazards such as flooding and legacy issues from historic activities.
