Draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) 2016-2026

Brisbane City Council is planning and delivering congestion-busting roads, better ways to get from here to there, parks and other infrastructure to keep Brisbane vibrant and liveable as it continues to grow.

Our city is evolving within one of the fastest growing regions in Australia and it’s important to make sure that as our city grows we maintain our high standard of infrastructure, delivered where and when it is needed and for the best value for money.

To make this happen, Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) is being amended to ensure development continues to be well-supported by new infrastructure into the future. Council is developing a Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) together with a City Plan major amendment for long term infrastructure. These plans represent more than 20 years of infrastructure delivery and include around 1000 projects worth $2 billion for stormwater, transport, parks and land for community facilities in the next 10 years alone.

The draft LGIP was developed using input from the community and covers the following infrastructure networks:

  1. stormwater network (e.g. pipes and water quality treatment devices)
  2. transport network (e.g. roads, pathways, ferry terminals and bus stops)
  3. public parks and land for community facilities network.

As of 1 July 2014, Queensland Urban Utilities assumed responsibility for planning and delivering the water supply and sewerage network.  

The draft LGIP will replace the current LGIP (previously known as Priority Infrastructure Plan (PIP)) in Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan), and adopts a 10 year planning horizon (2016-2026) to align with Council’s Asset management plan and 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.

Proposed amendments

The draft LGIP was available for public consultation from 12 June 2017 to 21 July 2017. Council considered all properly made submissions during that time and made amendments where appropriate. These changes and a report on submissions have been endorsed by Council and sent to the Queensland Government for final review. The package of amendments will be formally adopted and included in City Plan in mid-2018.

Find out if your property is affected

You can check if there are any proposed future trunk infrastructure items affecting a property by viewing the revised Plans for trunk infrastructure (PFTI) maps for each infrastructure network and the new Schedule of works tables.

Step 1. Check the Plans for Trunk Infrastructure (PFTI) maps for any future trunk infrastructure items.

Step 2. Take note of the unique identifier (e.g. ROC-A1-001) and type of infrastructure (e.g. Park).

Step 3. Open the corresponding Schedule of Works (SoW) table (e.g. SoW Public Parks) and search for the unique identifier (e.g. ROC-A1-001) for more details on the item, such as timing and costings.

To help with interpreting the documents, you can view the key components of the LGIP (Word - 108kb).

If you require assistance viewing or interpreting any information related to the draft LGIP, you can phone the Infrastructure Coordination team on 07 3403 8888.

Note: the final location of trunk infrastructure is subject to detailed investigation, design and Council approval. Delivery of items may be undertaken by Council or through the development process.
