Shaping SEQ - planning for the future

South East Queensland’s population is expected to grow by approximately two million people to 5.3 million by 2041—creating a need for, on average, more than 30,000 new dwellings each year between now and then.

The Queensland Government is currently reviewing the South East Queensland Regional Plan and has given locals the chance to have their say and be part of the conversation on how to shape their community.

After consulting with approximately 1400 residents earlier this year, more than 1300 ideas were submitted about the future of SEQ.

The conversations focused around ideas such as accommodating growth with the right infrastructure, fostering the future of rural communities, embracing nature with open and green spaces, protecting our heritage buildings and preserving iconic spaces.

The draft regional plan has been released for public consultation and community members can have their say until early March 2017.
