Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan | Brisbane City Council

Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan

Brisbane City Council is set to commence work on a new neighbourhood plan to help guide future development in the Eight Mile Plains and Rochedale area.

The new neighbourhood plan will be focused on the proposed Eight Mile Plains Metro station.

This project is just one way Council is ensuring the local community has the opportunity to work together with Council to define their vision for the future of their local area and identify opportunities to manage how the area will change over the next 10 years and beyond.

Planning for this area will define the future of part of the Eight Mile Plains Global Precinct, which was identified as one of the priority projects in Council’s 2017 shared vision for Australia’s New World City, and will guide shaping new commercial and residential opportunities in the area.

This area of Brisbane is a thriving business precinct, underpinned by the Brisbane Technology Park and supporting more than 3000 jobs. Council is excited to work to identify opportunities for investment in transport infrastructure, advanced technology manufacturing, commercial and residential development, supported by Brisbane Metro.

Council will undertake preliminary research over the coming months, prior to starting the formal neighbourhood planning processes in mid-2019.

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 Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan to help make this long-term vision a reality.
