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

  • We ensured the voices of Central Queensland Branch Members were heard in our responses to pivotal matters like the Gladstone’s Draft Local Government Infrastructure Plan, Gladstone’s Draft Planning Scheme Amendment and the Draft Livingston Planning Scheme Amendment
  • We continued our efforts to advocate to the local and State governments on planning reforms that directly affect our industry and maintained strong working relationships with the government decision makers
  • We provided input into the draft Queensland Building Plan, the proposed Urban Design Referral Trigger, and the Queensland Housing Code
  • 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 Central Queensland
  • We hosted four events including a regional market update, a Planning System workshop and another discussing flexible housing choices for our ageing population.
