Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan

Eight Mile Plains business park

Brisbane City Council is creating the Eight Mile Plains Gateway Neighbourhood Plan including parts of Eight Mile Plains and Rochedale, a key economic growth area for our city.

The new neighbourhood plan will focus on the proposed Eight Mile Plains Metro station and nearby residential and commercial areas.

The Eight Mile Plains and Rochedale area forms a key part of the Upper Mount Gravatt/Eight Mile Plains Global Precinct, which was identified as one of the priority precincts in Council’s 2017 shared vision for Australia’s New World City.

This area of Brisbane is a thriving business precinct, underpinned by the Brisbane Technology Park and supporting more than 5000 jobs. Council will work to identify opportunities for investment in transport infrastructure, advanced technology manufacturing, commercial and residential development, supported by Brisbane Metro.

Council is working with the local community to:

  • confirm the potential for new employment and residential development
  • facilitate the transformation of the Eight Mile Plains Gateway to a global precinct, particularly for advanced manufacturing technology
  • make the best use of the significant infrastructure investment in the area
  • protect and enhance environmental and biodiversity values in the Bulimba Creek catchment
  • enhance way finding, streetscape and walkability between major employment hubs, residential areas and public transport options.

Consultation for this phase of the project is now closed.

From May to June community members provided their ideas via an online survey and an interactive map tool about transport, services, environment, housing and local industry in the area. Council is now reviewing the survey and map contributions, which will be considered as part of developing a neighbourhood plan strategy for the project.

Nominations to join the Community Planning Team (CPT) were open from 13 May and closed 17 June 2019. Following a review of the nominations, people will be selected to represent the community’s views. The CPT will work with Council and notes from these meetings will be published on this page when available. Learn more about how community planning teams work here. The draft strategy will be available for community comment in late 2019.
