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 draft strategy was available for community comment from 7 June to 26 July 2021.

During this period the project team received surveys, emails, comments on the drop-a-pin map and spoke with residents, owners and businesses. Some matters the project team will be considering as part of preparing the draft neighbourhood plan are impacts of growth in some areas on character housing, on-street parking and amenity of the neighbourhood.

Detailed review of the feedback will now commence.

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, commercial and residential areas to facilitate employment growth and enhance liveability
  • capitalise on the significant infrastructure investment, including the world class education and sporting facilities in the area
  • protect character residential areas in key locations
  • protect and enhance the environmental and biodiversity values of Toohey Forest and the area’s creek corridors
  • enhance streetscapes and walkability between major employment areas, residential areas and public transport infrastructure.

Neighbourhood planning 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. For more information, visit the Neighbourhood planning and urban renewal process page.

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.
