Brisbane City Plan 2014 project background
Brisbane City Plan 2014 commenced on 30 June 2014. After the largest city-wide public consultation program to take place in Brisbane in more than a decade, over 2700 submissions were received during the 60 day public consultation phase which closed at midnight on 30 July 2013.
The Strategic Framework (Part 3) has guided the creation of Brisbane City Plan 2014. This framework draws a range of Council documents and plans together including:
- Brisbane Vision
- the Brisbane CityShape 2026
- numerous Neighbourhood Plans for local areas across the city
- the Brisbane Economic Development plan
- Brisbane's Unique Window of Opportunity report
- How the Brisbane City Plan could change - statement of proposals (full version) (PDF - 1.6MB).
The plan also responded to government policies and projects, including:
- the South East Queensland Regional Plan
- the South East Queensland Infrastructure Plan and Program (superseded by the State Infrastructure Plan in 2016).
In preparing the Strategic Framework, best practice in planning and urban design, detailed modelling of development, population and statistics have been considered. The framework also draws upon expert advice on topics ranging from traffic to design to air quality.
