Do you know why “pre-1946” is so important when renovating or building in the Brisbane City Council area?
Well – did you know that the first recorded aerial photograph of Brisbane was taken in 1946?
It’s why the date is so significant for Town Planning legislation in the Brisbane City Council region.
Not sure if your property was built before 1946?
Watch this video, and I’ll take you through the simple steps to know for sure.

If your home is in a “Traditional Character” area, the pre-1946 date and associated town planning rules are VERY significant in your renovation and building plans. If you’re not in one of these areas, these rules may or may not apply – so it’s worth confirming with Brisbane City Council directly.
And if you find out your home is pre-1946, quickly listen to this for some extra info you’ll need to confirm …
