Residents of Bridgeman Downs are being urged to collaborate with Brisbane City Council in a new plan for the neighbourhood.
Community consultation is now open on the area plan draft strategy until 11.59 pm on Monday 16 November 2020.
In a 2019 survey, locals demonstrated the intention of protecting the environment and green spaces, curbing part of housing developments, and servicing the area with infrastructure.
“Bridgeman Downs is a relaxed suburb combining city convenience with bushland beauty. Here, natural habitat and waterways are protected and embraced. Well-designed homes contribute to the local community and are connected to natural habitats. Convenient transport connections make getting to surrounding areas easy, and active travel options inspire healthy living, clean air, outdoor recreation and smart travel choices,” details the draft.
Part of the plan involves a business case to help reduce congestion on Brisbane’s north-west transport network. Bridgeman Downs falls within the study area, which extends from Bald Hills to Toowong.
According to the council, neighbourhood plans help guide future development and coordinate land use and infrastructure over ten years and beyond.
