Brisbane City Plan 2014 | Brisbane City Council

Brisbane City Plan 2014

Brisbane City Plan 2014 is Brisbane City Council's plan for the future development of Brisbane. It guides how land in Brisbane can be used and developed. It also helps plan for infrastructure to support growth and create a more diversified economy while continuing to protect our city's enviable way of life.

City Plan includes two online interactive planning tools, the ePlan (electronic version of City Plan) and interactive mapping, to make it easy for you to see what requirements may affect your development.

Brisbane City Plan 2014 (ePlan)

The ePlan is the electronic version of Brisbane City Plan 2014. Once you have your property report from interactive mapping, you can read more about development requirements in Council’s ePlan. You can also download Brisbane City Plan 2014 as a series of Word documents.

Interactive mapping

Council’s interactive mapping tool allows you to view your property on a map to see the zone, zone precinct, overlays and neighbourhood plans that apply to your site. It can also generate a property report that will help you to identify the rules that apply to your development and the criteria Council will use to assess your application.

PD Online

PD Online is Brisbane City Council's online system for planning and development applications and enquiries.
