Lord Mayor announces new City Plan start date

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk will today announce during a keynote speech at a Property Council of Australia industry forum, that City Plan 2014 will come into effect by 1 July, 2014.

Cr Quirk will announce that following recent approval by the State Government, the final version of the plan will be endorsed by Council at its sitting on 3 June.

“The new City Plan will give Brisbane a strategic framework to guide future development until 2031,” Cr Quirk said.

“This planning will provide clear advice about land use and infrastructure, giving a long term vision for our city to manage investment and growth to 2031 and beyond.

“The new plan provides up-front access to any potential planning issues relevant to a street, site or suburb through interactive mapping, offering a user-friendly experience for residents, businesses and investors looking to develop or invest.”

Cr Quirk said an industry week event commencing 2 June would help planning professionals consolidate a practical understanding of the new City Plan prior to its commencement.

“Planning and development professionals have provided significant input to the development of the plan and the Industry Week events will provide an ideal opportunity to consolidate practical knowledge on subjects such as subdivision, development design and certification,” he said.

“Council officers will be on hand to answer any specific questions attendees may have over the new planning requirements and how they will affect development.

“Places are filling fast and planning professionals are encouraged to register their interest via Council’s website.”

Residents will also have the chance to find out more about the new City Plan and seek practical advice from Council officers at a series of ‘Talk to a Planner’ events commencing in August 2014. Residents are encouraged to register their interest in attending via Council’s website.

The development of the new City Plan was a collaborative effort involving Council, residents, community, environment, heritage groups and industry over the last three years.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said a copy of the plan would be available to view via Council’s website from 9 June so residents, businesses and developers could familiarise themselves before its implementation.

It involved Brisbane’s largest city-wide planning program in more than a decade, with the online plan receiving more than 50,000 views and more than 20,000 factsheets downloaded.

The submission form was also translated into Korean, Traditional Chinese, Arabic and Vietnamese to ensure culturally and linguistically diverse residents had the chance to have a say.

More than 3000 members of the community attended information events and 2700 community members made submissions during the development of the plan.
