For a Better Brisbane

Brisbane planning & development resources

Are you interested about things that are being planned in Brisbane? This short post will explain how to search for information about development:

Brisbane City Council’s Planning and Development section is a good place to begin. The Brisbane City Council’s Planning and Development Online tool allows people to search for information about a particular site. For example, the Milton Tennis Centre Development application reference number is A002694787. If we click “Application Enquiry” and type in the relevant application reference number, this should return information about the project.

There is a wealth of information on the site, for example:

  • Submissions for or against the development
  • Site plans and other proposals (some nice concept diagrams are there)
  • Instructions on how to make a submission to the Brisbane City Council

Another useful site is Brisbane’s Flood Flag Map, also by the Brisbane City Council.

Not all developments in Brisbane go through the Brisbane City Council. Certain developments in specific key areas may come under the Urban Land Development Authority, a Queensland Government authority established as part of the Queensland Housing Affordability Strategy. The Urban Land Development Authority has projects all over Queensland, including:

  • Bowen Hills, Brisbane
  • Northshore Hamilton, Brisbane
  • Fitzgibbon, Brisbane
  • Oonoonba, Townsville
  • Clinton, Gladstone
  • Showgrounds Mackay
  • Woolloongabba, Brisbane

Further information about the Queensland Housing Affordability Strategy is available here.
