Brisbane City Council is expecting to get feedback from the community over the development of the Sandgate District Neighbourhood Plan. The main features of the proposal are enhancing Sandgate’s position as the primary community and economic hub of the area, increasing lifestyle and leisure opportunities, and placing more focus on the Moreton Bay foreshore.
“Community input is a vital part of the neighbourhood planning process, and there will be a number of face-to-face and online opportunities for you to have your say during the project. Following initial background research, Council has developed a draft strategy. This includes proposed land use and identifies potential future projects and actions that will help guide new development and investment,” says the council.
At first, residents will be asked to complete an online feedback form about the draft strategy by Monday 4 November 2019. Face to face sessions will also be held on Thursday 24 October (1-3pm and 6-8pm at Sandgate Town Hall, corner of Cliff and Seymour streets, Sandgate) and on Saturday 26 October (9am-12pm at Sandgate Scout Hall, 134 Brighton Road, Sandgate).
The adoption and gazettal of the new neighbourhood plan are forecasted to occur late next year.
