Highlights of the neighbourhood plan

The City West Neighbourhood Plan seeks to be simple and streamlined. It is intended to:

  • ensure that new development will be focused in discrete areas to allow targeted renewal while ensuring that heritage and character housing remain intact
  • ensure redevelopment of the Victoria Barracks is sensitive to the site's heritage and promotes public access
  • enable a greater mix of uses along Caxton Street and Petrie Terrace
  • reinforce the protection of large areas of character housing and heritage buildings
  • facilitate improved streetscapes and new public realm near new development. 

Project background

Council prepared a Draft City West Vision which set the direction for the renewal strategy and was released for community feedback in early 2015. Following this, Council prepared a draft renewal strategy that set out ideas for the future of the City West area. Feedback from the Draft City West Vision, community survey, the Community Planning Team workshops and Council's technical investigations directly contributed to the draft renewal strategy's recommendations.

The City West Neighbourhood Plan was informed by the draft renewal strategy, together with feedback from the community. The draft neighbourhood plan was reviewed by the Queensland Government from June to October 2016 and was available for community feedback from Friday 21 October to Friday 2 December 2016.

Council reviewed all submissions received and proposed changes to the draft neighbourhood plan in response to community feedback. A report on submissions was prepared, which included a summary of submissions and Council’s responses.

In March 2017, Council endorsed the revised draft neighbourhood plan for its final Queensland Government review. The draft neighbourhood plan was reviewed by the Queensland Government and on 4 September 2017 Council received approval to proceed to adoption. On 5 December 2017 Council adopted the City West Neighbourhood Plan together with consequential amendments to Brisbane City Plan 2014. The City West Neighbourhood Plan became effective on Friday 16 February 2018.

Community Planning Team

Early in the project, Council invited members of the community to nominate for the City West Community Planning Team. The Community Planning Team provided ideas and feedback that have helped to shape plans for the area's future.
