In conjunction with other infrastructure planning, Council prioritises the expansion of our footpath network using factors such as destinations and pedestrian profile and volume.
Using this approach, Council can avoid the installation of isolated sections of footpath that become difficult to administer and maintain.
Any requests for the installation of footpaths additional to works programmed by Council, whether the construction is proposed to be carried out by Council or by a property owner, should be referred to Council’s Engineering Section by phoning the Customer Service Centre on 4913 5000 or 1300 790 919 or submitting an enquiry via online services.
Please note that footpaths proposed to be constructed by a property owner will require Operational Works approval. IDAS forms can be found on the following website: http://dlgp.qld.gov.au/development-applications/
