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 Brisbane’s planning scheme to guide development and infrastructure in the area.

The Kangaroo Point Peninsula plan area is bounded by the Brisbane River, Mowbray Park, Shafston Avenue and the southern boundary of St Vincent’s Private Hospital. The plan area is directly across the river from the CBD and has approximately three kilometres of Brisbane River frontage. When updating the neighbourhood plan, Council will look to:

  • support growth that provides for the needs of the established residential community and which provides leisure and lifestyle opportunities for residents and visitors
  • facilitate high quality public realm and streetscape improvements in conjunction 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 strategy which will help to shape the draft Kangaroo Point Peninsula neighbourhood plan. 

Draft renewal strategy

Council released the Kangaroo Point Peninsula draft renewal strategy for public comment on 27 October and submissions closed 8 December 2017. The renewal strategy outlines a vision for future urban renewal and sets the direction for the neighbourhood plan.

Council is currently reviewing all feedback received on the draft renewal strategy and will prepare a response to submissions report which will be publicly available.
