Job number 16-032: Stones Corner, Greenslopes and Coorparoo

Proposal: Alter the boundaries of the suburbs of Greenslopes and Coorparoo to create a new suburb of Stones Corner
Local government: Brisbane City
Additional information: The name Stones Corner originated from James Stone who operated a ginger beer shop from 1875 at the corner of Logan Road and Old Cleveland Road. Stones Corner is a well-known place name that is in common usage and has been recognised historically for more than 100 years. Upgrading the status of Stones Corner from a neighbourhood to a suburb will remove confusion about its location, as new neighbourhoods are no longer recorded as areas used for addressing and location purposes under place naming policies. It has been demonstrated that there is a need, and community support, for the decision.
