Draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) 2016-2026

Brisbane City Council is preparing a draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) to include as part of Brisbane City Plan 2014 (City Plan). This will ensure that as our city grows we maintain our high standard of infrastructure, delivered where and when it is needed for the best value for money.

The LGIP is being prepared in accordance with Queensland Government changes made to the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 in 2014 and the Queensland Government’s statutory guideline for Making and amending local planning instruments. It is required to be implemented by 1 July 2018 in order for Council to continue to levy charges on new development and impose conditions about trunk infrastructure.

The draft LGIP was open for public consultation from 12 June to 21 July 2017. 

The draft LGIP will replace the transitional LGIP (previously known as Priority Infrastructure Plan (PIP)) in Part 4 and Schedule 3 of City Plan. From 3 July 2017, the Planning Act 2016 replaced the Sustainable Planning Act 2009. At this time, under the Planning Act 2016, the PIP became known exclusively as the transitional LGIP.

Proposed amendments

The draft LGIP amendment package is made up of:

  • a LGIP amendment
  • a major amendment planning scheme policies
  • a minor amendment to the scheme (consequential amendments resulting from the LGIP).

For a summary of the proposed changes, you can download the Table of Amendments (Word - 103kb).

Is my property affected?

You can check if there are any proposed future trunk infrastructure items affecting a property by viewing the new Plans for trunk infrastructure (PFTI) maps for each infrastructure network and the new Schedule of works tables.

Step 1. Check the Plans for Trunk Infrastructure (PFTI) maps for any future trunk infrastructure items on each infrastructure network (Stormwater, Roads, Active and public transport and Public parks and land for community facilities).

Step 2. Take note of the unique identifier (e.g. ROC-A1-001) and type of infrastructure (e.g. Park).

Step 3. Open the corresponding Schedule of Works (SoW) table (e.g. SoW Public Parks) and search for the unique identifier (e.g. ROC-A1-001) for more details on the item, such as timing and costings.

To help with interpreting the documents, you can view the key components of the LGIP (Word - 108kb).

If you require assistance viewing or interpreting any information related to the draft LGIP, you can phone the Infrastructure Coordination team on 07 3403 8888.

Note: the final location of trunk infrastructure is subject to detailed investigation, design and Council approval. Delivery of items may be undertaken by Council or through the development process.
