Brisbane City Council is updating the Kangaroo Point Peninsula neighbourhood plan and wants locals to have their say.

The renewal plan is part of the council’s strategy to create a long-term vision for the future of the Kangaroo Point Peninsula. After consulting the public, the updated neighbourhood plan will become part of the Brisbane City Plan 2014.

The plan covers the area bounded by the Brisbane River, Park Avenue, Shafston Avenue and Amesbury Street.

Strategies

The neighbourhood plan is guided by key strategic points:

  • Connecting the Peninsula – The plan aims to create new pedestrian and cycle bridges that will connect Kangaroo Point to CBD. The planners are also looking to address missing RiverWalk links around the peninsula. They also would like to know if there is a need for an additional CityCat stop.
  • Managing Development – The plan intends to make heritage spots and Story Bridge views as the primary considerations for future developments in the area.
  • Enhancing Local Lifestyle – The peninsula’s proximity to the city centre gives it strong potential for growth in terms of lifestyle dining, retail and business activities. The plan includes making Captain Burke Park a city-wide destination and revitalising Main Street to turn it into a lively dining and retail precinct.
  • Improving River Access – Planners are looking to upgrade access to Captain Burke Park beach and revitalise the Frank Nicklin Dock at Dockside. They are also planning for enhanced river access for kayak, canoe and paddleboard enthusiasts.
