Long term infrastructure plans (after 30 June 2026) | Brisbane City Council

Long term infrastructure plans (after 30 June 2026)

To plan for future infrastructure as Brisbane grows, Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) includes a Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) representing around 1000 future projects worth $2 billion for stormwater, transport, parks and land for community facilities until 2026. In addition, City Plan also includes long term infrastructure plans identifying infrastructure that is expected to be needed after 30 June 2026.

Benefits of the long term infrastructure plans

The long term infrastructure plans:

  • provide certainty about long term infrastructure requirements (that Council has previously identified as necessary to support future development) to enable efficient decision making by Council, landowners and developers
  • help preserve Council's ability to deliver long term infrastructure beyond 30 June 2026 such as roads, pathways, public parks, land for community facilities and drainage, important to the continued liveability and financial sustainability of Brisbane
  • maintain infrastructure commitments made with local communities through neighbourhood plans
  • clarify the implementation of the Planning Act 2016 for development to provide payment of additional trunk infrastructure costs.

If your property is affected

If a development application is lodged for a property, Council will determine if the proposed development is affected by the relevant provisions of City Plan.

If it is, a condition may be imposed on the development to preserve the land needed for a long term infrastructure item, to ensure the infrastructure can be provided in the future.

A condition might, for example, require development to:

  • provide building setbacks to preserve future road widenings
  • provide easements for drainage infrastructures
  • keep land proposed for future parks clear of permanent improvements such as buildings, driveways or retaining walls.

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

Check if a property is affected

You can check if there are any proposed long term infrastructure items affecting a property by following the steps below for each infrastructure network.

If you require assistance viewing or interpreting this information, you can phone the Infrastructure Coordination team on 07 3403 8888.

Stormwater network

  1. Check the online mapping or PDF maps for any future infrastructure items
  2. Take note of the unique identifier (e.g. ROC-SW1).
  3. Open Part 10 - Table 10.3.2 and search for the unique identifier for more details on the item, such as timing.
  4. Review performance outcomes PO18 and PO19 of Part 9 - Section 9.4.9 Stormwater code.

Road network

  1. Check the online mapping or PDF maps for arterial, district and suburban road corridors (e.g. Rochedale Road).
  2. Open Part 10 - Table 10.3.3 and search for the arterial, district or suburban road corridor (e.g. Rochedale Road) and check the relevant notes.
  3. Review performance outcomes PO3A and PO4 of Part 8 - Section 8.2.18 Road hierarchy overlay code.

Pathways network

  1. Check the online mapping or PDF maps for identified cycle routes.
  2. Review performance outcomes PO1A and PO1B of Part 8 - Section 8.2.3 Bicycle network overlay code.

Community purposes network - specific location items

  1. Check the online mapping or PDF maps for any specific location infrastructure items.
  2. Take note of the unique identifier (e.g. ROC-P1) and type of infrastructure (e.g. Park).
  3. Open the long term infrastructure table in Part 10.3 and search for the unique identifier for more details on the item.
  4. Review the Part 8 - Section 8.2.8.A Community purposes network overlay code.

Community purposes network - indicative location items

  1. Check the figures in Part 7 Neighbourhood plans for any indicative location infrastructure items.
  2. Take note of the neighbourhood plan (e.g. Indooroopilly centre neighbourhood plan) and type of infrastructure (e.g. Park)
  3. Open the long term infrastructure table in Part 10.3 and search for the neighbourhood plan for more details on the item.
  4. Review the Part 8 - Section 8.2.8.A Community purposes network overlay code.
