Bundaberg, let's continue the good work we’ve started together

Re-join as a member of the Institute in 2018 to continue the good work we’ve started together!

As we approach the end of 2017, it’s opportune to reflect on what we’ve achieved together. You told us what was important to the local development industry. We took that feedback and kept it front of mind when we advocated to government, undertook research, and planned informative branch events. 

We know each region faces different opportunities and challenges. The Bundaberg Branch is working hard to voice member feedback on local industry matters, and we are pleased to share a few highlights from 2017:

  • We engaged extensively with decision makers and encouraged the local government to apply for State Government funds for projects like the Rubyanna Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Burnett Heads Streetscape as well as for stages one and two of the Bundaberg Multiplex
  • We ensured the voices of Bundaberg Branch Members were heard in our responses to pivotal matters like helping materialise different sized projects, right from a multi-modal path between Bundaberg and Bargara through to a $1 billion training hospital at the UCQ grounds
  • Our Research Foundation reports, Planning Pulse, Regional Radar, and Census fact sheets were delivered straight to your inbox, sharing the latest market and consumer analysis for Bundaberg
  • We hosted four events including a regional market update, Planning System workshop, and another discussing flexible housing choices for our ageing population.
