In 1996, Brisbane City Council commenced the Suburban Centre Improvement Projects (SCIP) program to inject new life into suburban shopping centres. To date, this program has delivered $53 million worth of infrastructure improvements to 48 centres across Brisbane.
SCIPs have assisted in the creation of some of our city’s most popular suburban hubs where local residents can meet at a unique destination to socialise, shop, conduct business and entertain.
The aim of a SCIP is to improve the commercial vitality of an area by delivering infrastructure improvement that:
- creates a distinctive sense of place for local residents, visitors and businesses
- provides a high-quality, attractive public space where people want to visit and shop
- improves the accessibility, connectivity and safety of a centre.
Our city’s suburban hubs provide an enjoyable space for people to socialise, shop, conduct business and entertain. Find out more about SCIPs and why they are good for business and community.
