City Planning

There is no denying that Brisbane is growing. Each year more people move to the Sunshine State’s capital (see page 40 for details). The expansion of the city and the development of suburbs is a sore subject for some residents who feel strongly about changes. Brisbane City Council are holding an information session on Tuesday, 30 October 2018 at the Brisbane City Hall, 64 Adelaide Street. You can book a ten-minute session with a planning specialist to raise concerns and get answers to any questions you might have.

Construction Starting

Ten-storey development, Serenity, on the Gold Coast’s Isle of Capri, is set to commence building by the end of 2018; as is Coorparoo’s luxury Maasra apartment development which offers supersized four-bedroom apartments, perfect for downsizers.
