Banyo-Northgate Neighbourhood Plan

Brisbane City Council is preparing a new neighbourhood plan for the Banyo-Northgate area, which also includes parts of Nudgee, Nundah, Virginia and Hendra.

The project is part of Council’s vision for a well-planned, liveable and efficiently serviced city and is an opportunity for Council and the community to work together to shape the future of the Banyo-Northgate area.

The Banyo-Northgate neighbourhood plan draft strategy

In October, Council released the draft strategy to make sure it is heading in the right direction.

The draft strategy incorporates background reports and community input received from consultation.  It includes proposed land use directions, identifies future projects and actions that could help guide new development and investment.

The strategy, along with community responses, are now being considered as Council prepares the draft neighbourhood plan.  

When preparing the neighbourhood plan, Council worked with the community to:

  • balance the future growth of housing and businesses
  • promote business, industry growth and jobs
  • consider housing choices for local residents at all stages of life
  • protect the local environment and character housing
  • reinforce road, public and active transport links, such as footpaths and bikeways, to keep the area accessible and well connected.

Next steps

Council is now considering community feedback on the strategy in preparing the draft neighbourhood plan, which will be publicly notified for community submissions. This will include details of all proposed changes such as changes to zones, overlays or planned infrastructure, and include accompanying technical maps.

Council will respond to all submissions, make any adjustments to the draft plan, and then seek Queensland Government approval to adopt.
