Brisbane City Plan 2014

Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) is Brisbane City Council's plan for the future development of Brisbane. The plan guides how land in Brisbane is used and developed. It also helps plan for infrastructure to support growth and protect our way of life. We're growing our city while maintaining the character of our suburbs and creating a city of neighbourhoods.

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

Brisbane City Plan 2014 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 generate a property report that will identify the rules that apply to your development and the criteria Council will use to assess your application.
