Attached is a copy of the final published article that Sean and I completed for Sherwood-Graceville. Feel free to circulate this article among WTSAG members. We think the article objectively represents the results from the study and it asks important questions about future public participation efforts in Brisbane.

Together with a number of other groups we have been trying to obsorb the proposed changes to the Brisbane City Council City Plan. The plan changes many things and can only be viewed online at the Brisbane City Council's website. The document is also quite complex in trying to understand the interaction between the various rules and "overlays".
Although there are character housing changes planned in the New City Plan document it appears as though the character protections in the Sherwood-Graceville Neighbourhood plan may be retained. Of notes in he documents is that across the city plan demolition of pre-war (1945) houses is no longer considered Impact Assessible, and only code assessible.

What is the meaning of the Interim Critical Route that passes through the core of the Character Housing areas of Chelmer, Graceville, Sherwood and Corinda?
