Shady Rooftops Campaign

Active, Subtropical, vital

Brisbane is a beautiful sub-tropical city that is perfect for year-round outdoor living. Shaded roofs and small rooftop structures should be utilised and incentivised in our city.

We asked Brisbane City Council to change the planning scheme to make it easier to create activated, shady rooftops. This YIMBY Qld campaign aims to reduce red tape and provide incentives to help deliver good development outcomes that benefit the community.

We are proud to say that in the Brisbane Future Blueprint released by the Council in July 2018, setting out the Vision for Brisbane’s future, the Council announced it will be making a change to the rooftop rules in line with YIMBY Qld’s submissions.
