Lower Oxley Creek North Neighbourhood Plan
Lower Oxley Creek North is one of the few remaining greenfield areas within Brisbane. Brisbane City Council has prepared a neighbourhood plan for Lower Oxley Creek North that will guide future development and coordinate land use and infrastructure.
On 8 November 2016, Council adopted amendments to Brisbane City Plan 2014 to include the Lower Oxley Creek North Neighbourhood Plan, which came into effect on 18 November 2016.
Highlights of the neighbourhood plan
The neighbourhood plan aims to create an attractive place for business and employment, encouraging the development of industrial uses, while protecting and enhancing environmental corridors and safeguarding people and property from the impacts of hazards such as flooding and landfills.
The neighbourhood plan provides for:
- an industrial extension to the south-west industrial gateway - low impact industry and medium impact industry uses are encouraged in areas that are not affected by high-risk flooding or significant environmental values, in particular transport, manufacturing, logistics and distribution
- the protection and enhancement of regionally important environmental corridors including Blunder Creek, Oxley Creek and Archerfield wetlands
- a new neighbourhood centre and local park at the junction of Sherbrooke Road and King Avenue to service the needs of local businesses and workers
- the safety of people and property from the impacts of hazards including flooding and existing landfills.

Council recommenced the Lower Oxley Creek North Neighbourhood Plan in April 2013. Neighbourhood planning in Lower Oxley Creek North first commenced in 2009 and was placed on hold in 2010 pending the results of the Willawong Air Quality Health Risk Assessment. Neighbourhood planning for the adjoining Lower Oxley Creek South area was finalised in 2013 (adopted on 30 August 2013).
The neighbourhood plan boundary was changed in 2013 to exclude the area east of Paradise Road. The change recognises that this land is mostly developed and therefore is not a core part of the Lower Oxley Creek North area.
