Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan
Following input and feedback from residents, Brisbane City Council has prepared a draft update to the Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan. Once complete, it will become part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan) and set guidelines for future development in the area.
The draft plan was publicly notified for community submissions from 5 October to 19 November 2018. Council is now reviewing the submissions received. Following the review, Council will publish a report on this web page on how submissions have been addressed.
Highlights of the draft neighbourhood plan include:
- maintaining strong building height controls to preserve views to and from the Story Bridge
- rezoning land under the Story Bridge from High density residential to Community purposes to promote the creative use of space underneath the bridge
- facilitating mixed-use development in focused areas along Main Street to promote new businesses and services
- protecting two additional properties through the City Plan Heritage Overlay
- protecting more trees through the City Plan Significant Landscape Tree Overlay.

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 Brisbane’s future growth. 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 Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan to help make this long-term vision a reality.
