With South East Queensland's population expected to grow by almost 2 million people over the next 25 years, it is vital that we deliver housing to accommodate this growth. Strategically, we need to do this with a weighted mix of consolidation and expansion. To accommodate the additional 200,000 people in Noosa and the Sunshine Coast, the dwelling benchmark target is to supply 63% through consolidation.
There's now an increased need to deliver the product we're missing in the middle.
This is your unique opportunity to hear directly from Queensland Government Architect Malcolm Middleton OAM, on the State's QDesign Initiative, and its potential strategy for accommodating increasing density in regional areas.
James Ruprai from Sunshine Coast Council will share the Council's perspective and vision for the coast, particularly in relation to the missing middle product.
You'll also hear from Ryan Longland and Garth Nolan, from the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning, as they discuss the consolidation targets for the region.
