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.
The draft plan was publicly notified for community submissions from 30 July to 10 September 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.
