Key Priorities

The big end of town is making record profits, while thousands are struggling to pay rents and mortgages. The Greens want to challenge the treatment of housing as a for-profit commodity, and make developers pay their fair share towards the cost of public infrastructure and facilities.

The Brisbane City Council election is coming up on Saturday, 16 March, 2024. Check out our major policy announcements below.

The Greens believe that residents should have more direct and meaningful control over the future of our local neighbourhoods and the wider metropolis. Our approach to local governance is grounded in grassroots participatory democracy - the principle that everyone who is affected by a decision or cares about an issue should get a meaningful say on the matter, with transparent access to relevant information, and without giving disproportionate weight to the views of property developers, wealthy elites or multinational corporations.
