Superseded Centres Detail Design Manual

The Centres Detail Design Manual was a Planning Scheme Policy under Brisbane City Plan 2000. The Centres Detail Design Manual has no effect under Brisbane City Plan 2014. For guidance on streetscape design under Brisbane City Plan 2014, refer to the applicable codes and planning scheme policies.

Each year a significant upgrade is made to Brisbane's streetscapes, particularly to the public footway, through Brisbane City Council's capital works and maintenance programs and private development contributions.

The standards in the superseded Centres Detail Design Manual were designed to deliver footways which:

  • reflect the adjacent land use and the likely pedestrian traffic
  • provide vegetation for shade and add to the city's subtropical image
  • are constructed and maintained to a consistent standard.
