Why are so many developments being approved that ignore Neighbourhood Plans, and the wishes and needs of local communities?
What does it mean for our suburbs, schools and parks?
How can we make better planning decisions in the future and give power back to the community?
Hosted by Jonathan Sri, Councillor for The Gabba Ward, join us to discuss the issues facing our growing western suburbs and how best to address them.
This is a free community event for all Brisbane residents, and we would like to particularly extend our invitation to those in the suburbs of Auchenflower, Bardon, Fig Tree Pocket Indooroopilly, Mt Coot-tha, Rosalie, St Lucia, Taringa and Toowong.
