Design strategy for Brisbane

Restautant and streetscape at James Street, New Farm

Brisbane is a great place to live, work, and relax – it’s a safe, vibrant, green and prosperous city, valued for its friendly and optimistic character and enjoyable lifestyle. Brisbane City Council is carefully planning for a growing city by delivering the 40 actions from Brisbane’s Future Blueprint.

One key action is to implement a new design strategy for Brisbane to ensure that as Brisbane grows, we, and future generations, can enjoy Brisbane’s beautiful climate and connect with family and friends in places that make our city great.

Council is creating two documents to guide quality design in our city. The first is the design strategy, which sets the overarching framework for improved design in Brisbane. The second is a design guide to inform quality design of townhouses and apartments up to five storeys. Community consultation for both documents was open 5 August to 13 September 2019. Council is reviewing feedback and will publish the final documents soon.
