Pullenvale Ward Councillor, Greg Adermann has announced Brisbane City Council’s intention to develop a high-level concept plan for a diverse range of nature-based recreation activities and facilities within the Anstead Bushland Reserve.

Cr. Adermann said the concept plan would identify low impact outdoor locations for future recreation opportunities and visitor facilities, and demonstrate how the reserve values will be protected and enhanced for the long-term.

“The planning priorities for Council natural areas is nature conservation, followed by the provision of outdoor recreation opportunities,” he said.

Cr. Adermann said as part of the process, Council will be undertaking extensive stakeholder and local community consultation about the plan.

“I will be writing to all residents in the Anstead, Moggill and Bellbowrie areas, along with a range of local community groups with an interest in this plan, seeking their feedback. Letters will be sent in early May and residents will have until 6th June to respond,” he said.

Cr. Adermann stressed that this was a concept only at this stage and that local community input will be taken into account in the development of the final concept, which is expected to be released later this year.

The commitment to develop a plan for the Anstead Bushland Reserve was given by Brisbane Lord Mayor, Adrian Schrinner during last year’s City Council election.

“My administration is creating more to see and do in a city that is clean and green, so residents can enjoy Brisbane’s beautiful climate while connecting with the people and places that make our city great.

As Australia’s most biodiverse capital city, we are committed to protecting, managing and enhancing Brisbane’s biodiversity values. Anstead Bushland Reserve in our largest and most diverse Ward is an important part of our strategy,” Cr. Schrinner said.
