Project name: Temple Site Investigation: Planning Review
Location: Greater Brisbane (QLD)
Brief: MacroPlan provided an assessment of the relevant planning provisions for six sites across Brisbane that could potentially support a place of worship (temple) on-site.
All state and local planning provisions were investigated. This included but was not limited to flooding and zoning constraints, local area planning, koala conservation and native vegetation requirements.
Result: The analysis identified a number of constraints that narrowed the short-list to 2 locations.
In determining the preferred site, infrastructure charges were a notable factor. It was found that existing improvements to the site such as a dwelling/structure involved less infrastructure charges compared to a site that is vacant, requiring development from scratch.
Services: Planning review, constraints analysis
