world-class green corridor
Brisbane City Council has committed $100 million for the Oxley Creek Transformation project to transform Oxley Creek into a world-class green lifestyle and leisure destination.
The draft Master Plan
The Oxley Creek Transformation draft Master Plan is a comprehensive long-term plan outlining our vision for the corridor, goals, strategies, strategic ideas and priority projects which will guide the transformation of the corridor over the next 20 years.
The draft Master Plan will explore lifestyle and leisure opportunities within the corridor, including sport and recreation facilities, nature-based tourism, cultural and heritage activities and walking and cycling trails, while supporting a clean, green and sustainable environment.
The draft Plan will explore opportunities to improve flood resilience and water quality, restore wildlife habitats, reuse stormwater and other measures that allow the natural environment to thrive.
Thank you all for having your say on the draft Master Plan. We are now in the process of collating all of your feedback and ideas to help us achieve our vision for the Oxley Creek corridor.
We will continue to collaborate with businesses, industry, government and the local community to ensure that the ideas and projects from the Master Plan can become a reality.
