Brisbane City Council (BCC) has recently submitted an updated Sherwood/Graceville Neighbourhood Plan to the Queensland State Government for approval.  WTSAG acknowledges that Council has listened to residents and changes have been made to preserve the character area in Corinda between Oxley Road and Clara Street.  However five storey development is still proposed in Corinda between Oxley Road and the railway line to the West, as far south as Lynne Grove Avenue.
