Infrastructure planning policy

Each year Brisbane City Council invests significantly to support new and existing development in Brisbane with new and upgraded infrastructure. Council also levies infrastructure charges on new development as part of the development assessment process, which contribute to the provision of trunk infrastructure such as roads, pathways parks and the stormwater network.

It is important to make sure that as our city grows it changes in a way that maintains our high standard of infrastructure while providing value for money. Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) sets out policies to ensure that our city’s urban development is supported by infrastructure that is planned and delivered in a coordinated, efficient and financially sustainable manner.


Transitional Local Government Infrastructure Plan (previously called Priority Infrastructure Plan)

The Transitional Local Government Infrastructure Plan (previously called the Priority Infrastructure Plan) is a long-term (2011-2031) citywide plan that coordinates trunk infrastructure with land use planning. 


Draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) 2016-2026

City Plan major amendment for long term infrastructure

Council is also preparing a City Plan amendment for long term infrastructure to provide continued clarity about Brisbane’s long term infrastructure planning and support growth from 2026 and beyond.
