Sandgate District Neighbourhood Plan

Brisbane City Council is updating the Sandgate District Neighbourhood Plan which includes the suburbs of 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.

The Sandgate District Neighbourhood Plan is in the ‘draft neighbourhood plan’ phase. For more information, view the full neighbourhood planning and urban renewal process.

Draft neighbourhood plan

Council prepared the draft Sandgate District 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 were proposed in the draft neighbourhood plan to respond to community feedback.

The draft neighbourhood plan was considered by Council in December 2020, has been reviewed by the Queensland Government with their requirements incorporated into the draft plan, and was released for community consultation from 10 May to 21 June 2021.

Next steps

Council will review the draft neighbourhood plan provisions based on formal submissions received. The revised neighbourhood plan will then be sent to the Queensland Government for review.

Once these reviews are complete, the plan will be presented to Council and subsequently adopted as part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan).
