Council has released a “draft new City Plan” that will become into operation in late 2013.

At first look there are going to be some exciting changes to the existing plan. Changes that will present some wonderful opportunities for clients that plan ahead. Some changes worth noting are:

  • Rural Residential is being allowed with areas of 1 to 5 hectares
  • Duplexes will be allowed in Brisbane
  • Student Accommodation will be allowed in its own right rather than as multi units
  • Houses built prior to 1911 will be affected and may not be demolished

Please talk to me if you would like help in seeing how these changes can affect you.
