Coorparoo and Districts Neighbourhood Plan
Brisbane City Council is preparing a neighbourhood plan for the Coorparoo and districts area. The plan includes parts of Coorparoo, Greenslopes, Camp Hill, Holland Park and Holland Park West. Once complete, the neighbourhood plan will become part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) to guide new development.
The neighbourhood plan is an opportunity to plan for future growth and protect the aspects of the area residents love.
From April to June 2018, Council released the draft plan for community comment, receiving 421 submissions.
Council reviewed all submissions and made a number of changes in response to the feedback, including:
- protecting 4.8 hectares of Stephens Mountain as a conservation zone
- adding in provisions for properties adjoining heritage places to ensure new development respects the neighbouring heritage place.
Council has submitted the revised neighbourhood plan to the Queensland Government for final review. Additional changes may result from the revised plan.
Draft plan key outcomes
The key outcomes include:
- achieving a balance between growth and maintenance of character and low-density residential development
- rezoning more areas to the character residential zone to protect streetscapes and housing
- rezoning 4.8 hectares of Stephens Mountain to the conservation zone
- focusing change in centres along:
- Logan Road corridor
- Greenslopes Private Hospital
- area around Greenslopes busway station
- new commercial and retail space
- new development, including pockets of medium-density residential development up to five storeys in height
- identifying areas that require character protection, including those areas in the character residential zone
- protecting 13 additional pre-1911 buildings from demolition and adding 10 places to Council’s heritage register
- ensuring new development is sympathetic to adjoining heritage places and does not detract from the streetscape
- confirming future development at the existing Energex depot and former Ekibin extractive quarry site
- requiring new developments in Logan Road centres to incorporate a landscaped setback.

Brisbane's Future Blueprint
After input from more than 100,000 residents, Council released Brisbane's Future Blueprint in June 2018. It has eight principles to guide decisions for Brisbane. One of these principles is creating a city of neighbourhoods - residents are close to the services they need and the lifestyle and leisure options they want.
Council creates plans like the Coorparoo and Districts Neighbourhood Plan to help make this long-term vision a reality.
