Nathan, Salisbury, Moorooka Neighbourhood Plan
Brisbane City Council is creating a new neighbourhood plan for Nathan, Salisbury and Moorooka. Neighbourhood plans help guide future development and coordinate land use and infrastructure over a 10-year period and beyond. Once complete, the neighbourhood plan will become part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan).
The neighbourhood plan is being developed to ensure the area's future looks familiar, while planning for the needs of the existing and future community.
Council is working with the local community to:
- review the development potential of industrial and residential areas to facilitate employment growth and enhance liveability
- capitalise on the significant infrastructure investment in the area
- preserve the suburban and traditional character of residential areas
- protect and enhance the environment and biodiversity in Toohey Forest and local waterways
- enhance wayfinding, streetscapes and walkability between major employment hubs, residential areas, and public transport infrastructure.

Neighbourhood plan process
Community input is a vital part of the neighbourhood planning process, and there will be a number of face-to-face and online opportunities for you to have your say during the project.
Following initial background research, Council will develop a draft strategy. This will ensure the community has opportunities to have a say early in the process and help guide future planning for the area. This will include proposed land use and may identify future projects and actions that will help guide new development and investment.
Community responses on the draft strategy, together with technical reports, will inform the development of a statutory neighbourhood plan. This will include details of all proposed changes such as changes to zones, overlays or planned infrastructure, and accompanying technical maps. The draft will be reviewed by the Queensland Government before further community consultation.
Once complete, the plan will be adopted as part of City Plan to guide development in the area.
Background research and initial community engagement
CPT nominations closed on 16 September 2019.
Council will seek community feedback on a draft strategy that will set the direction of the neighbourhood plan.

Brisbane's Future Blueprint
After input from more than 100,000 residents, in June 2018 Council released Brisbane's Future Blueprint with eight principles to guide decisions for Brisbane. 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 including the Nathan, Salisbury, Moorooka Neighbourhood Plan to help make this long-term vision a reality.
