Sandgate District Neighbourhood Plan

Brisbane City Council is updating the Sandgate District Neighbourhood Plan for Sandgate, Deagon, Shorncliffe and Brighton.

Council is committed to growing our city while maintaining the character of our suburbs and planning for the future.

This project is just one way Council is ensuring Brisbane is a city of neighbourhoods, where residents are close to the services they need and the lifestyle and leisure opportunities they want.

Draft neighbourhood plan

Council has prepared the draft Sandgate District Neighbourhood Plan (draft Neighbourhood Plan) based on community feedback on the draft strategy and further technical reviews of the area.

Several changes to the approach outlined in the draft strategy are now proposed in the draft Neighbourhood Plan to respond to community feedback.

The draft Neighbourhood Plan was considered by Council in December 2020.

A detailed summary of the submissions on the draft strategy will be available once the draft Neighbourhood Plan is released for community submissions in early-mid 2021. 

Next steps

The draft Neighbourhood Plan has been sent to the Queensland Government for review.

Once this has been completed, there will be an opportunity for you to make a formal submission on the draft Neighbourhood Plan during the statutory public notification period, scheduled for early-mid 2021.

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 on the draft neighbourhood plan.

Once complete, the plan will be adopted as part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) to guide development in the area.

Neighbourhood plan process

Following initial background research, Council developed a draft strategy, which was released on Tuesday 8 October 2019. Feedback on the draft strategy closed on Monday 4 November 2019. The draft strategy included proposed land use and identified potential future projects and actions that will help guide new development and investment.

Community responses on the draft strategy, together with technical reports, have informed the development of a statutory neighbourhood plan. The draft Neighbourhood Plan includes details of all proposed changes such as changes to zones, overlays or planned infrastructure, and accompanying technical maps. The draft Neighbourhood Plan needs to be reviewed by the Queensland Government before further community consultation can take place.

Once complete, the plan will be adopted as part of City Plan to guide development in the area.
