Hemmant Lytton Neighbourhood Plan now available for viewing

Council has just posted the Draft Hemmant Lytton Neighbourhood Plan on it's website for viewing.

This plan is an important initiative for our area and the first co-ordinated planning exercise ever undertaken in Hemmant.

Hemmant-Lytton is a key economic and employment growth area for our city. To support and encourage this growth over coming years, Brisbane City Council has released a neighbourhood plan for this area.

The aim of the plan is to foster economic growth while recognising the value of the natural environment and the existing residential community. The neighbourhood plan will guide new development and coordinate land use and infrastructure.

I encourage local residents to make themselves familiar with the plan and what it means for them ahead of the public notification and submission period later this year.

You can do so by following this link.

Council undertakes an extensive program of community consultation during the development of the neighbourhood plan. Community feedback on the draft strategy has been used to draft the statutory neighbourhood plan.

As I mentioned, another opportunity to comment is expected to occur in early-mid 2015.
