Dutton Park-Fairfield Neighbourhood Plan

From 2015, Brisbane City Council worked with the local community to develop a new neighbourhood plan for the Dutton Park-Fairfield area, which includes parts of South Brisbane, Woolloongabba, Dutton Park, Highgate Hill, Fairfield, Annerley and Yeronga.

The neighbourhood plan became effective in Brisbane City Plan 2014 on 14 September 2018.
