Public park infrastructure in priority infrastructure plan
Session Purpose
To provide an overview of:
• where parks requirements fit within the scheme
• key changes between Brisbane City Plan 2000 and Brisbane
City Plan 2014
Introduction
Brisbane City Plan 2014 provisions related to parks:
• Strategic framework
• Priority infrastructure plan (PIP) - public parks network
• Open space zone
• Sport and recreation zone
• Conservation zone
• Park code
• Park planning and design code
• Outdoor sport and recreation code
• Infrastructure design planning scheme policy - Chapter 10: Parks
• Park management plan planning scheme policy
Overview of Changes
 Introduction of zone precincts for local, district and metropolitan park
hierarchies
 Introduced ‘urban commons’ in centres as a park type
 Improved alignment for park recommendations between zones,
neighbourhood plans and PIP
 Clarified intent for public ownership of land in the Open space zone
 Simplified approval processes for new or upgraded infrastructure in
parks
 Reduced levels of assessment for many uses in parks - impact
assessment by exception
Policy Setting
• Parks provide a diversity of settings and experiences to meet
the physical, social and cultural needs of the growing
community
• Brisbane’s open space values are maintained
• Brisbane City Plan 2014 protects the land used for privately
owned sport and recreation facilities. If redeveloped, the land
is re-used for another form of sport or recreation use

Zone precincts for local, district and

Impact assessment for a range of
development in parks, even where
anticipated
More code and self assessment for
suitable development in parks
Only smaller scale, limited footprints/
park structures/infrastructure
supported
Larger and more diverse park
infrastructure and uses supported
where suitable
PIP is perceived as separate to
Brisbane City Plan 2000
PIP part of Brisbane City Plan 2014
with more specific recommendations

PIP mapping uses specific and
indicative symbology for

Open space zone
Allocated to majority of existing and planned informal use parks

Allocated to all sport and recreation use parks and some informal
use parks
Allocated to privately-owned sites and facilities
Conservation area
Conservation zone

Levels of Assessment
Reduced number of uses requiring impact assessment. Many uses now
subject to code assessment or self-assessment.
For example:
 a club in a District or Metropolitan zone precinct of Sport and recreation
zone has reduced from impact (generally inappropriate) to code
assessable
 a market when in a District zone precinct or the Metropolitan zone precinct
of Sport and recreation zone or Open space zone, and not involving
building work or operational work, is exempt development
 an environment facility in the Open space or Conservation zone is selfassessable, where complying with all acceptable outcomes in Park code
Park Planning and Design Code
• Land to be transferred to Brisbane City Council as park is required to
comply with the Park planning and design code
• Planning requirements from the Subdivision and development guidelines
relocated into this code, e.g. landform gradients
• Strengthened link to PIP desired standards of service, e.g. embellishment
requirements
PIP – Public Park Infrastructure
 Updated and amended PIP mapping to capture existing and
future park trunk infrastructure
 Improved mapping
 differentiates between indicative and specific locations
 adds extent of corridor link parks to identify all affected
properties
PIP – Public Park Infrastructure
Example of new maps and legend
Trunk infrastructure identification available on interactive mapping
Summary
• Introduction of zone precincts for local, district and
metropolitan catchments
• Introduced ‘urban commons’ in centres as a park type
• Improved alignment of park requirements with Brisbane City
Plan 2014 zones, neighbourhood plans and PIP
• Clarified intent for public ownership of land in the Open space
zone
• Reduced levels of assessment for many uses in parks
• Simplified approval processes for new or upgraded
infrastructure in parks
