Holistic local sustainability; food, water, energy, money, people
The Southern Brisbane Suburban Forum is a local volunteer organization that has been formed to give a democratic voice to the local community. The forum creates the opportunity for a collective discussion and narrative for local stakeholders to drive to desired changes to their suburbs.
Geographically, our suburbs have a critical role in Brisbane City’s future and has diverse assets to be enhanced and nurtured with sub-city regional strategic planning – driven by community, with others such as governments, business and other organisations. The Forum sees the coming together of people from diverse business and community interests to show a cooperative way to create and inform change in partnership with different decision makers.
Brisbane City Council Neighbourhood Plans involve developers and members of the community in a process that affects our future. SBSF tries to help local residents and businesses get their voice heard.
