Neighbourhood plans are created by Brisbane City Council, with input from residents and business owners. They are legal documents that guide development in an area and sit within Council's planning scheme, Brisbane City Plan 2014.
Local environmental, social and economic factors are considered, along with the management of population growth, when preparing a neighbourhood plan. The plans can help facilitate economic prosperity, protect character development, provide for open space, include standards for new development and reflect improved infrastructure such as new transport routes.
Not all communities have a neighbourhood plan. Council decides which areas need a neighbourhood plan and when. Find neighbourhood plans and other local planning projects in your area.

Any proposed changes to your neighbourhood have to be weighed up by Council, together with the local community. If you live, work, visit or own property in Brisbane, you can have your say on neighbourhood plans.
