Community Development

bplanned & surveyed has experience working with several different religious groups throughout South-East Queensland. We have not only been involved with the approvals for their community facilities but have also assisted them in purchasing future community development sites and obtaining approval for other developments. 

We also have experience in Ministerial Designations (MID). Ministerial Infrastructure Designation’s (MID) facilitate the delivery of certain community supporting infrastructure without requiring approval from the local Council. Examples of infrastructure considered include hospitals, schools, police/ambulance/fire stations, power lines, sporting facilities, water supply infrastructure and sewerage treatment plants.

The focus of community development

Community development initiatives in Brisbane can focus on a variety of areas, such as housing, transportation, parks and open spaces, community centres, and other public facilities. 

For example, new construction projects might involve building new homes, apartments, or townhouses, while redevelopment initiatives might involve revitalizing existing parks, community centres, or public spaces. Community development can also involve the acquisition of existing properties, such as community centres or public parks, to improve the overall quality of life in the area.
