BCC have progressed the City Plan amendments to enable rooftop shade structures in residential and centre zones without triggering another storey by definition, generally in line with YIMBY Qld’s Shady Rooftops Campaign we launched several years ago. It has taken a while but we are getting closer to this becoming law! The draft City Plan amendments are currently on public exhibition and you have the opportunity to make a submission by Sunday 13 December 2020. We have lodged a positive YIMBY submission in support of the City Plan amendment and also asked that it be broadened to all zones in Brisbane too. We encourage our network and followers to do the same! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

- Tell Council why you support City Plan Amendment G eg. It will facilitate shady rooftops which is a good, healthy, outcome in our subtropical city. It will help to green our city and reduce the urban heat island. It will bring us in line with international best practice. And it will help to make Brisbane more liveable. Also tell Council if you think it should be broadened to apply to any zone in Brisbane.
- Add you details and submit.
