City West Neighbourhood Plan

Brisbane City Council is preparing a new neighbourhood plan that will help shape the future of City West. Once complete, the City West Neighbourhood Plan will become part of Brisbane’s planning scheme to guide new development and infrastructure in City West.

The City West area has a rich history and an attractive landscape that makes it a highly desirable location to live, work and visit. Local businesses and residents enjoy excellent access to the city centre, and other major employment, cultural and recreational destinations.

Council's City Centre Master Plan 2014 identified a need to revitalise the City West area as an integrated lifestyle hub. The current local plan for the area, the Petrie Terrace and Spring Hill Local Plan, was developed more than 28 years ago.

Neighbourhood plan steps

Initial community consultation was undertaken in 2015 with the release of the draft City West Renewal Strategy. During this period, 42 submissions were received. Council has reviewed the submissions received and used the feedback to inform the draft City West Neighbourhood Plan preparation.
