Hemmant-Lytton Neighbourhood Plan | Brisbane City Council

Hemmant-Lytton Neighbourhood Plan

Hemmant-Lytton is a key economic and employment growth area for our city. From 2013, Brisbane City Council worked with the community to develop a neighbourhood plan to support and encourage future growth while protecting the natural environment and the needs of the local community.

On 28 February 2017, Council adopted amendments to Brisbane City Plan 2014 to include the new neighbourhood plan, together with necessary consequential amendments. The amendments became effective on 24 March 2017.

Highlights of the neighbourhood plan

  1. Supporting vital industry, including marine industry, north of the Cleveland rail line.
  2. Reinforcing the existing residential and semi-rural lifestyle areas in other parts of the plan area south of the rail line.
  3. Safeguarding the area’s environment and managing flooding and stormwater through a well-ordered system of non-urban-zoned land and plans for future infrastructure improvements.
  4. A new park along Aquarium Avenue fronting Bulimba Creek and an upgrade to Paul Conti Park.
  5. Protecting pre-1946 houses in Hemmant village.
