Banyo-Northgate Neighbourhood Plan | Brisbane City Council

Banyo-Northgate Neighbourhood Plan

Following input and feedback from residents, Brisbane City Council has prepared a draft neighbourhood plan for the Banyo-Northgate area, which also includes parts of Nudgee, Nundah, Virginia and Hendra.

Once complete, the neighbourhood plan will form part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 to guide future development in line with the local community's vision and priorities.

The draft plan was publicly notified for community feedback from 2 November to 17 December 2018 and Council is now reviewing the submissions received. Following the review, Council will reply to everyone who made a submission and publish a report on this web page on how submissions have been addressed.

Plan overview

The draft plan aims to guide the area's future change and growth, in a way that complements its character while encouraging more local jobs, services and activities. The key outcomes from the draft plan are to:

  • protect nine additional heritage properties and ensure 117 additional properties maintain their street's traditional building character
  • create more space for businesses to expand and host up to 5000 new jobs, and support two future employment precincts at Northgate and Bindha
  • ensure that industrial activities important for Brisbane's jobs and economy can continue to thrive in the area
  • allow the Banyo centre to expand and provide more local services
  • plan for new housing, particularly new railway stations.

Council adoption and inclusion in Brisbane City Plan 2014.

Brisbane's Future Blueprint

After input from more than 100,000 residents, in June 2018 Council released Brisbane's Future Blueprint with eight principles to guide decisions for Brisbane. One of these principles is creating a city of neighbourhoods where residents are close to the services they need and the lifestyle and leisure options they want.

Council creates plans like the Banyo-Northgate Neighbourhood Plan to help make this long-term vision a reality.
