Albion Neighbourhood Plan update
Brisbane City Council has been working with the community to update the existing Albion Neighbourhood Plan. The updated plan retains the original vision for a vibrant village centre with a mix of development in adjoining areas providing opportunities for living, working and playing.
The updated plan better reflects the current and future needs of the Albion community, while planning provisions have also been clarified and simplified to be consistent with Council’s recently updated planning scheme, Brisbane City Plan 2014.
On 3 May 2016, Council adopted amendments to Brisbane City Plan 2014 to include the updated Albion Neighbourhood Plan together with necessary consequential amendments. The amendments commenced on 13 May 2016.
Highlights of the updated Albion Neighbourhood Plan
The updated neighbourhood plan seeks to revitalise Albion village and promote higher density development close to Albion Station, while protecting established areas of character housing and light industry. Key differences between the superseded Albion Neighbourhood Plan and the new Albion Neighbourhood Plan include:
- revised precinct boundaries and the inclusion of the new Corunna Street Precinct
- changes to zoning within the Albion village, Corunna Street and Raceway precincts
- limitation of building height within the Station Precinct, and changes to maximum building heights in some precincts
- inclusion of specific provisions to ensure new development protects key public view corridors to features such as the city centre skyline, the Brisbane River and Mt Coot-tha.
The Albion Neighbourhood Plan was adopted in 2008 and was Council’s first neighbourhood plan for the inner city. Since the plan was adopted, there have been changes in the global and local economies, as well as the emergence of new opportunities that need to be addressed in the updated neighbourhood plan.
Initial community consultation was undertaken in November 2013 on potential changes to the Albion Neighbourhood Plan. This community feedback was used to prepare the draft Albion Neighbourhood Plan.
The draft Albion Neighbourhood Plan was available for public consultation from 13 July - 24 August 2015.
