City Plan major amendment for long term infrastructure

Every day, Brisbane City Council is working with residents and local communities to improve our quality of life while ensuring the city has the services and infrastructure to meet the needs of future generations.

Following input from the community, Council has prepared a draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP), to guide future infrastructure investment and delivery from now until 2026.

Council is developing a major amendment for long term infrastructure to preserve Council’s ability to deliver this infrastructure beyond 2026 and the LGIP.

The proposed amendments are intended to:

  • provide certainty of long term infrastructure requirements
  • preserve Council’s ability to deliver long term infrastructure such as roads, pathways, land for public parks and community facilities and stormwater infrastructure 
  • maintain the infrastructure commitments made through neighbourhood planning.
