Brisbane City Council is inviting the local community to share their thoughts about the development of the draft concept plan for the Stephens Mountain Reserve in Greenslopes. 

To help get the community’s thoughts about the mountain reserve development, Council is asking residents to fill out a short survey. The survey asks about the use of the reserve, types and frequency of activities, and if there are elements locals would like to be enhanced in the future.

In an effort to continue protecting the reserve whilst making it accessible for the local community to enjoy, BCC has allocated $200,000 to construct a lookout and walking trails at Stephens Mountain. 

The survey for Stephens Mountain Reserve draft concept plan closes on Sunday 22 September 2019 and is available at https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5190464/FuturePI

Fore more information, phone Council on 07 3403 8888. 

About Stephens Mountain Reserve

Under the recently adopted Coorparoo and Districts Neighbourhood Plan, around 5.8 hectares of Stephens Mountain will be a conservation zone. The reserve is a local landmark and considered one of Brisbane’s highest points. 

This means the ecological, landscape and visual values of Stephens Mountain will be retained and that remnant vegetation on the area will be protected. Based on the amended neighbourhood plan, developments for consideration should also respect the natural topography and should complement the scenic landscape.
