Our team is on track to deliver on our four-year plan to safeguard the city’s important green space and koala habitat for the future with the purchase of 750 hectares of bushland by 2020 as part of the accelerated Bushland Acquisition Program.
Continuing to protect Brisbane’s significant bushland is part of my ambition to ensure the Brisbane of tomorrow is better than the Brisbane of today.
We have saved more than 100 Suncorp Stadiums of bushland in less than four years, adding to more than 9000 hectares of Council-owned bushland citywide
Green Future Fund
When Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner became Lord Mayor we announced that future dividends from teh City of Brisbane Investment Corporation would be directed towards an accelerated five-year program to buy and create more parks, sports fields and green space for our city.
The 2019/20 BCC Budget includes a Green Future Fund which will be funded by a $20 million dividend from CBIC for the first year.
Brisbane residents have told us they want more greenspace with new places to relax and this five-year program will deliver more land for community sport and recreation.
This is a direct result of the responsible economic management of our Council team, our foresight to set up the fund in the first place, and our vision for a cleaner, greener and more liveable Brisbane.
CBIC is the city’s future fund and I cannot think of a better way to plan for the future than by creating more parks, sports fields and green space.
It is an investment in our priceless quality of life that makes Brisbane so popular and so envied. It is the type of investment we need to lock in Brisbane’s place as Australia’s true lifestyle capital.
