Brisbane City Plan 2014 mapping


Brisbane City Plan 2014 contains maps that show where the provisions of the planning scheme apply across the Brisbane area. To make it easier to view these maps, Brisbane City Council has also produced an interactive mapping tool for zones, overlays, neighbourhood plan and priority infrastructure plan maps. Brisbane City Plan 2014 mapping should be viewed in conjunction with the ePlan.

Brisbane City Plan 2014 is regularly updated with new or amended information. The Table of Amendments (Appendix 2) lists essential detail. Further detail can be found on the Amendments page.

Interactive mapping

This tool enables you to navigate a map of Brisbane, either viewing it at the local government boundary or zooming in to suburb and street level, and view zone, overlay, neighbourhood plan and priority infrastructure plan maps. There are many different maps, or layers, which can be switched on to view. For example, the City Plan zoning can be switched on.

Use this tool to look up a property, switch on different layers (maps) and see how the property is affected by Brisbane City Plan 2014.

This mapping includes certain current Queensland Government State Planning Policy mapping where it supersedes the Brisbane City Plan 2014 maps, for example the ANEF mapping under the Airport Environs overlay.

This mapping is inaccessible to website assistive technologies. If you require assistance accessing or interpreting any of these maps please contact Council on 07 3403 8888.

By using Council's Brisbane City Plan 2014 interactive mapping you are choosing to accept the terms and conditions of this tool. Please refer to the help guide/FAQs for assistance with using this tool.

Strategic framework maps show Council’s vision for long term land use planning for Brisbane. The Strategic framework maps are not meant to be read at the individual property level; they provide a picture of the CityShape at a city-wide scale.

Zoning maps

The basis of all planning starts with zoning. City Plan provides zoning maps for all land within the Brisbane City Council area.

The zoning maps have been grouped by map tile. Please refer to the map index to locate the map relevant to your area of interest.

Overlay maps

Overlay maps show either Queensland Government interests or where particular local circumstances are relevant to development. The purpose of overlays is to identify areas that:

  • are sensitive to the effects of development
  • constrain land or development
  • are subject to valuable resources, and/or
  • present opportunities for development.

Within City Plan, overlay mapping relates to overlay codes in Part 8.

The overlay maps have been grouped by map tile. Please refer to the map index to locate the map relevant to your area of interest.

City Plan includes the following:

Neighbourhood plan maps show the boundary of each neighbourhood plan area, along with any precincts that may be relevant. Within City Plan, neighbourhood plan mapping is associated with the Neighbourhood plan codes in Part 7.

The Priority Infrastructure Plan (PIP) maps identify the priority infrastructure area (and associated localities), network keys, network service catchments and desired standards of service areas for the Brisbane local government area.

PIP maps are referenced in section SC3.2 of Schedule 3 of Brisbane City Plan 2014.


Plans for trunk infrastructure maps

The plans for trunk infrastructure (PFTI) maps identify the existing and proposed trunk infrastructure in the schedule of works which is intended to service the predicted existing and future residential and non-residential development.

PFTI maps are referenced in section 4.6 of Part 4 of Brisbane City Plan 2014.

The PFTI maps have been grouped by map tile. Please refer to the map index to locate the map relevant to your area of interest.
