As the year progresses we can expect to see Brisbane City Council adopt a number of new Neighbourhood Plans. Council use neighbourhood plans to make changes to the Brisbane City Plan at a local level, including (but not limited to) changes to Zones and protection of additional heritage or character buildings.  It is important that you are aware of these changes as they may enhance or limit the development potential of your property.

Listed below are the current Plans that Council anticipate adopting over the coming year and some of their key features.  More information can be found on Brisbane City Council’s website by clicking here.
