South East Queensland Regional Plan Review

The review of the SEQ Regional Plan is on again.

News from Peter Wellington’s office

Mr Wellington has asked that I forward you the following information as it may be of interest to you and your members.

Shaping SEQ is the start of an ongoing conversation with the community about the future of South East Queensland.

The Queensland Government is currently reviewing the South East Queensland regional plan and is calling for your ideas to ensure the plan reflects the values and needs of the community.

Our region is changing and growing. The regional plan allows us to realise the opportunities of growth while preserving the things we love about our communities. We will also be able to respond to the challenges that change brings.

Shaping SEQ will help establish an understanding of the key issues in planning for the region and the values, priorities and great ideas the community has for the future of SEQ.

We need to talk about the opportunities and challenges to establish a plan that will guide our region for the next 50 years.

Be part of the conversation by sharing your great ideas about our themes – grow, live, connect, prosper and sustain.

Throughout May and June the project team will be traveling across SEQ talking to the community.

Come and see the project team between 10am and 2pm at Kings Beach, Caloundra on Saturday 21 May – Address: Ormond Terrace and Edmond Street, Kings Beach, Caloundra .  The Project team will also be at the Caboolture Show on Saturday 4 June – Address: Caboolture Showgrounds, 140 Beerburrum Road, Caboolture.
