Brisbane's City Plan big on green space Just seven per cent of the city's land mass will be impacted by development in the next two decades and 40 per cent of the city will remain devoted to green space.
More than 150 urban villages will rise but leafy backyards will remain. That move is a bid to accommodate a population expected to grow by 200,000, while maintaining current low densities across the city, as well as preventing an urban sprawl. Dr Burke said some of the most efficient European cities had that kind of design but lamented Brisbane still being a city where transport and associated development remained largely focused on its road network. "In Sweden and Denmark, you see cities that have clustered their development along railway lines and key nodes and used planning to encourage the market to use to good locations," he said. "They have high standards of living and coach purses usa the cities are more efficient. "Our transport and land use kind of fight each other. "We choose to live in bigger houses on bigger lots and choose to drive and we live with the consequences of that." While Dr Burke said community consultation and neighbourhood planning was one of the strengths of the plan, Brisbane Residents United disagreed. President Elizabeth Handley said the move from impact assessable developments, where residents have a chance to object, to code assessable, where they do not, in many residential areas was a major concern. "I think there will be a lot of issues for people and a lot of people just coach men's outlet store won't realise they don't have any say in what's happening," she said. "If you have people who are community minded and responsible they are going to do the right thing but if if you have developers who want to come in and make money they won't care." Council's planning chairman Amanda Cooper oversaw the City Plan process and said the move was forced upon council by changes to planning laws by the previous state government. The plan also came under coach store fire from the Opposition for giving the green light to build on flood plains, something Cr Quirk said was an inevitability in a coach outlet atlanta demographics flood prone city. Maximum house heights will also rise to a blanket 9.5 metres across the city, partly as a measure to allow for flood sensitive home designs. Environmental urban planner Mellini Sloan agreed council had to balance both space and growth in considering future development. "The reality is if you want densification and urban consolidation, the CBD is on a ridge in the middle of a flood plain," she said. "So the idea you would have that intensification and another that says don't built on a flood plain, those two things may run counter to each other." Opposition leader Milton Dick repeatedly said throughout the debate his major concern was infrastructure, particularly transport, and service delivery would not keep pace with suburban development. However deputy mayor Adrian Schrinner said in 20 years, much of Brisbane would remain untouched by developers.
"The shape of the city will be a low density city with increased density in targeted parts that is the reality," he said. "Seven per cent of the city will experience significant change under this but the remainder, 93 per cent, will remain the same and that is the most important thing we can say.".
