Cubberla Creek Reserve Draft Sport and Recreation Precinct Plan — Chapel Hill
Brisbane City Council is developing a strategic plan for the Cubberla Creek Reserve Sport and Recreation Precinct. The precinct services parts of Chapel Hill, Kenmore and Indooroopilly and is home to six sporting clubs and the Cubberla-Witton Catchment Group. The precinct plays an important role in providing more opportunities to enjoy Brisbane's climate and to connect with family and friends.

About the project
Council undertakes a regular program of planning Council's sport and recreation precincts. The intent of the Cubberla Creek Reserve Draft Sport and Recreation Precinct Plan is to facilitate the ongoing vibrancy and future sustainability of the reserve for residents, users of the space and visitors to enjoy now and in the future.
Existing clubhouse facilities at Cubberla Creek are ageing and do not meet the current demand for sport and recreation facilities (e.g. do not adequately support female participation). The draft precinct plan aims to investigate the consolidation of clubhouse facilities to encourage collaboration and creative approaches to improve function, maintenance and management.
The Cubberla Creek Reserve Sport and Recreation Precinct will deliver a space that:
- protects the natural habitat and greenspace to create more opportunities for residents to enjoy Brisbane's beautiful climate and connect with friends and families
- enhances accessibility to the precinct and sporting facilities through the improved configuration of existing car parking capacity
- addresses the increased demand for informal recreation and physical activities for the purpose of health and fitness
- enables future planning to ensure flood resilience in the local area
- investigates the consolidation of clubhouse facilities to encourage collaboration and creative approaches to improve function, maintenance and management.
Following the initial engagement phase in 2018, Council sought community feedback on a draft precinct plan for the Cubberla Creek Sport and Recreation Precinct in late 2019. This feedback has been incorporated into the subsequent technical studies undertaken between September-December 2020.
In late 2020, Council met with individual sporting clubs and Cubberla-Witton Creek Catchment Group to reconfirm their future needs and aspirations.
Upon completion of the technical studies, a revised draft precinct plan will be prepared and subsequently released for community consultation in early 2021.
The final precinct plan is due for public release in mid-2021. Implementation of the precinct plan will be dependent on the available budget and will require ongoing collaboration between the Council, residents and clubs, and their users and visitors.
