BCC Future Infrastructure Planning – Open for Submissions

By | 2017-11-17T04:38:42+00:00 July 17th, 2017|Town Planning|

Brisbane City Council are preparing a draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) which includes plans for around 1000 projects over a 10-year horizon (2016-2026) in the following four networks:

  • Stormwater network
  • Transport network – roads, pathways, ferry terminals and bus stops
  • Public parks network
  • Land for community facilities network

The LGIP will ultimately be incorporated within the Brisbane City Plan 2014 and is required to be implemented by 1 July 2018.

As the LGIP indicates the infrastructure, including land, required for its 10 year plan it will have implications to some infill and greenfield development projects.

With the anticipated implementation of the draft LGIP, Council are also in the process of preparing a major amendment to the Planning Scheme to incorporate the LGIP.  The amendments are intended to provide clarity about Brisbane’s long term infrastructure planning and support growth beyond 2026.

View mapping associated with the draft LGIP – Proposed Plans for Trunk Infrastructure (PFTI).

Submissions on the draft LGIP or proposed amendment to the Planning Scheme are currently being accepted by Council until 5pm on 21 July 2017.
