Chermside Centre’s Plan for the future

Brisbane City Council endorsed the draft Chermside Centre Neighbourhood Plan to go to first State Interest Check on 2 November 2010, moving it one step closer to adoption in the City Plan.  This plan will manage one of Brisbane’s fastest growing suburbs. 

Feedback from the community, businesses and stakeholders has been used to guide the development of the draft neighbourhood plan.  This feedback supported proposed mixed-use development around the Chermside Shopping Centre, the Prince Charles Hospital and along Gympie Road allowing the majority of the plan area to remain unchanged.

Road access improvements are proposed via a number of intersection upgrades, new roads and road widenings.  This will improve Rode Road, upgrade Buruda Street and provide a road extension between Pilba Street and Rode Road.

Chermside will also benefit from an extension to John Paterson Park.  Park upgrades are also proposed for Seventh Brigade Park, an important space for sport, recreation and cultural activities.

The draft Chermside Centre Neighbourhood Plan is also looking to manage the impacts of overland flow and flooding associated with Somerset Creek.

The draft Chermside Centre Neighbourhood Plan has been sent to the Queensland Government for the first state interest review before public consultation in 2011.  To find out more visit www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/neighbourhoodplanning and follow the link to Chermside Centre.
