The Queensland Government is proposing changes to the State Planning Regulatory Provision (SPRP) for the Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development (TOD).
In 2014 the Queensland Government, in partnership with Brisbane City Council (Council), finalised the planning framework to deliver a TOD on the former Animal Research Institute site at Yeerongpilly. A TOD is a planning concept that promotes the creation of well-designed and sustainable urban communities focused around transit stations.
State Planning Regulatory Provision and Detailed Plan of Development
The Yeerongpilly transit oriented development (TOD) draft state planning regulatory provision (SPRP) 2016 is the proposed planning framework for the Yeerongpilly Green development and will guide future development in the area.
Yeerongpilly Green is a Queensland Government project managed through Economic Development Queensland (EDQ). The project was recently announced in the Advancing our cities and regions strategy. The existing Yeerongpilly TOD SPRP 2014 requires updating to appropriately reflect the agreed development.
The SPRP for the Yeerongpilly TOD was first approved in 2011 to allow for the urgent development of the South Regional Business Centre for the Brisbane City Council (BCC). Since 2010 the state government has consulted extensively with the community on amendments to the SPRP. The SPRP was updated in 2014 to reflect new planning.
The proposed changes will take effect from 2 December 2016. From this date the developer may lodge development applications with the council. Applications will be code assessable and assessed against this new version of the SPRP.
Consultation and next steps
The SPRP 2016 ( 1.7 MB) and detailed plan of development ( 12.7 MB) have been released for public consultation. Any member of the public can make a submission during the public notification period 2 December 2016 to 27 February 2017.
You may lodge your submission in three ways:
- Post: Yeerongpilly TOD SPRP 2016 consultation
Planning Group, Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning
PO Box 15009
CITY EAST QLD 4002
Submissions close at 5pm Monday 27 February 2017.
Any amendments will be incorporated prior to the Minister approving the amended SPRP. The gazettal is expected to occur in early 2017 and at that time the SPRP will be incorporated into the Brisbane City Plan 2014 as a neighbourhood plan in mid-2017.
Submissions lodged on the SPRP during the public notification period will not impact on any development applications lodged with council. They will only affect changes to the SPRP.
