Kangaroo Point Peninsula neighbourhood plan | Brisbane City Council

Kangaroo Point Peninsula neighbourhood plan

Brisbane City Council is preparing an update to the Kangaroo Point Peninsula neighbourhood plan that will help shape the future of the peninsula. Once complete, the updated Kangaroo Point Peninsula neighbourhood plan will become part of Council's planning scheme, Brisbane City Plan 2014 to guide development in the area.

The boundaries of the Kangaroo Point Peninsula plan area are the Brisbane River, Mowbray Park, Shafston Avenue and the southern boundary of St Vincent’s Private Hospital, Brisbane. The plan area is directly across the river from the city centre and has approximately three kilometres of Brisbane River frontage.

Draft neighbourhood plan

Council has prepared the Kangaroo Point Peninsula draft neighbourhood plan, which was endorsed on 20 March 2018.

The draft neighbourhood plan has been informed by the Kangaroo Point Peninsula draft renewal strategy and feedback received from the community to date.

The draft neighbourhood plan is currently with the Queensland Government for a review of state interests and will be available for public comment once the review period has ended.

The key objectives of the draft neighbourhood plan are to:

  • support growth that provides for the needs of current residents as well as leisure and lifestyle opportunities for residents and visitors
  • facilitate high-quality improvements to public spaces in line with new development
  • enhance pedestrian and cycle links to parks and the Brisbane River
  • update planning provisions for the area.

Community Planning Team

A team of community representatives, known as a Community Planning Team (CPT), has worked collaboratively with Council since November 2016.

When forming a CPT, Council aims to include a representative mix of people from across the community, normally with a membership of around 25-30 people. For the Kangaroo Point Peninsula CPT, over 80 nominations were received resulting in 30 members being appointed.

The CPT met with Council on three separate occasions, providing input into the draft renewal strategy which helped shape the draft neighbourhood plan.

Next steps

Council has endorsed the draft neighbourhood plan and submitted the plan to the Queensland Government to review for state interests. Once this review is complete, there will be a final opportunity for the community to have a say on the plan through a formal submission.
