Mayors and government unite to plan south-east Queensland's future

Cameron Atfield and Amy Remeikis report in the Brisbane Times (21.4.16) on moves by the state government and south-east Queensland mayors to collectively update the SEQ Regional Plan, originally released by the Bligh government in 2009.

'South-east Queensland's primary planning document is set to be updated for the first time in seven years as the region positions itself to cope for massive population growth.

'The current South East Queensland Regional Plan, which called for an additional 156,000 new homes to be built in Brisbane alone, was adopted in 2009.

'Deputy Premier Jackie Trad said south-east Queensland's population was set to grow to 5.5 million in the next 25 years, so it was important to plan for growth "while preserving the things that we love about our communities".'
