The Gap Neighbourhood Plan | Brisbane City Council

The Gap Neighbourhood Plan

Following input and feedback from residents, Brisbane City Council has prepared a draft neighbourhood plan for The Gap to include as part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) to guide future development in line with the local community's vision and priorities.

The population of The Gap is not expected to grow significantly over the next ten years. However, future development needs to be carefully planned and managed so that it stays a great place to live.

Now is the final chance to have your say on the draft plan, with submissions open until 5pm Monday 10 September 2018.
