Neighbourhood Plan Changes

Lee Morrison - Tuesday, September 18, 2018

The Planning Place have recently been undertaking mail outs to advise local residents of Neighbourhood Plans changing in their suburbs. There are currently eight (8) draft neighbourhood plans in progress across the Brisbane local government area, detailed below:

·         Dutton Park – Fairfield Neighbourhood Plan - in effect as of 14th September 2018

·         Spring Hill Neighbourhood Plan - in effect as of 14th September 2018

·         Newstead North Neighbourhood Plan - in effect as of 14th September 2018

·         Coorparoo & Districts Neighbourhood Plan

·         Banyo Northgate Neighbourhood Plan

·         Kangaroo Point Peninsular Neighbourhood Plan

·         Ferny Grove – Upper Kedron Neighbourhood Plan - being adopted 21st September 2018 

·         The Gap Neighbourhood Plan

Each of the draft Neighbourhood Plan’s timelines vary, however, many are set of adoption and gazzetal in 2018. Please see above image identifying suburbs where properties will be affected:

What is changing?

In the vast majority of Draft Neighbourhood Plans, a large amount of properties will be removed from the Low-Medium Density Residential (LMR) Zone to be included in the Character Residential (CR) Zone.

What this means for your property?

The end result can be a reduction in the number of dwellings that can be established on your land, and an increase in the minimum lot size requirements for a subdivision, which potentially reduces the value a developer may pay for your property to redevelop if you intend to sell in the future, based on development potential. 

Please feel free to contact The Planning Place to obtain an obligation-free quote for a request to assess a development application under RiskSMART’s fast track program.
