Council Releases Future Infrastructure Plans – Have your say

Brisbane City Council has released a key plan that will guide major infrastructure upgrades to stormwater, transport, parks and community facilities over the next 10 years.

The Local Government Infrastructure Plan, known as an LGIP, outlines around 1000 projects valued at $2 billion across the City. This does not include smaller, local projects but upgrades to trunk infrastructure on a suburb-wide level. The upgrades reflect population, employment and dwelling projections provided by the State Government.

It is critical that the necessary infrastructure for Tennyson Ward is firstly, on the LGIP list, and secondly, prioritised to meet the needs of our community. Council keeps jamming more and more units into our district but is not supporting growth with the necessary new infrastructure and parklands.

I need your help to make sure key infrastructure upgrades are listed for future funding. Now is the time to speak up.

Listed below are the projects proposed in the LGIP and a list of what’s missing. Suggestions must be made to Council by 5pm, Friday, 21 July 2017 and can be made via the online survey form here or via email infrastructurecoordination@brisbane.qld.gov.au (please make sure to include your name and address) or by post to Infrastructure Coordination, City Planning and Economic Development, Reply Paid 1434, Brisbane, Q, 4001 (no stamp required).

You can view the LGIP and maps via the hotlinks below.

What’s in the LGIP?

Of the 1000 projects city-wide in the LGIP just five (5) are proposed in Tennyson Ward over the next ten years. All are worthwhile but nowhere near enough to support our growing community.
