Local projects finalised in 2019
Neighbourhood plans and other local planning projects help manage change and growth at a local level. The following neighbourhood plans were finalised by Brisbane City Council in 2019.
On Tuesday 28 May 2019, Brisbane City Council adopted an amendment to Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) to incorporate provisions of the Coorparoo and Districts Neighbourhood Plan. The Coorparoo and Districts Neighbourhood Plan is effective in City Plan from 26 July 2019.
Highlights of the plan include:
- achieving a balance between growth and maintenance of character and low-density residential development
- rezoning more areas to the character residential zone to protect streetscapes and housing
- rezoning 5.8 hectares of Stephens Mountain to the conservation zone
- focusing change in centres along Logan Road corridor, Greenslopes Private Hospital and the area around Greenslopes busway station
- new commercial and retail space
- protecting 13 additional pre-1911 buildings from demolition and adding 10 places to Council’s heritage register
- ensuring new development is sympathetic to adjoining heritage places and does not detract from the streetscape
- confirming future development potential at the existing Energex depot and former Ekibin extractive quarry site
- requiring new developments in Logan Road centres to incorporate a landscaped setback.

On Tuesday 14 May 2019, Brisbane City Council adopted an amendment to Brisbane City Plan 2014 to incorporate provisions of The Gap Neighbourhood Plan. The plan is effective in Brisbane City Plan 2014 from Friday 31 May 2019.
Key outcomes of community input reflected in the draft plan include:
- maintaining The Gap’s traditional suburban, low-density character
- protecting the environment and greenspace, including several significant trees
- encouraging redevelopment of The Gap Village shopping centre to provide better walking connections with adjoining parks and residential areas
- allowing diverse housing types (up to three storeys in height) in a limited area near The Gap Village shopping centre. This will allow for residents to continue to live in The Gap as their needs change over time
- providing more guidance about what development may occur on sites already zoned for residential use. This will be done by outlining the type of housing suitable for the sites and clearly mapping ecological features to be protected.
