Local Government Infrastructure Plan (previously called Priority Infrastructure Plan)

Future trunk infrastructure and trunk infrastructure upgrades are identified in Council’s Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP). This 20 year plan (2011-31) is aligned with anticipated  growth in Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan).

The LGIP predicts the infrastructure Brisbane will need to service its growing population and support healthy, well-functioning neighbourhoods. It provides developers with an indication of likely infrastructure required for proposed projects. It also assists Council in managing its extensive capital works program by identifying and planning for the delivery of trunk infrastructure over the long-term.

Trunk infrastructure covers the following networks:

  • ​transport (e.g. roads, pathways, ferry terminals and bus stops)
  • stormwater (e.g. pipes and water quality treatment devices)

  • community purposes (e.g. parks, sporting facilities)
  • water (owned and operated by Queensland Urban Utilities)
  • sewerage (owned and operated by Queensland Urban Utilities).

The LGIP constitutes Part 4 and Schedule 3 of Brisbane City Plan 2014.

Please note: from 3 July 2017, the Planning Act 2016 replaced the Sustainable Planning Act 2009. Under the Planning Act 2016, the PIP became known exclusively as the transitional LGIP.

Implementation of the LGIP

The LGIP comes into effect during the development assessment process when trunk infrastructure is required or when development generates additional demand on trunk infrastructure networks.

Applicants may have the opportunity to offset the costs of providing trunk infrastructure against the adopted infrastructure charges levied on their development.

The Brisbane Infrastructure Charges Resolution (No.6) 2017 outlines the charges and how the process is administered. More information on infrastructure charges and offsets.

Review of the LGIP

As a result of changes to the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 in mid-2014 Council is developing a draft LGIP to replace the current version of the LGIP. The draft LGIP is required to be implemented by 1 July 2018 in order for Council to continue to levy charges on new development and impose conditions about trunk infrastructure.

The draft LGIP adopts a 10 year planning horizon (2016-2026) to align with Council’s Asset management plan and Long term financial forecast to better address the statutory financial sustainability requirements. To provide continued clarity about Brisbane’s long-term infrastructure planning beyond 2026, Council is also proposing a City Plan major amendment for long term infrastructure to support longer term growth.
