City Deals & NQ Plan update

Progress was made on both City Deals and the NQ Regional Plan in the lead up to the election.

A number of issues were raised at the City Deals meeting including water and energy, both of which are considered high priority issues for industry and economic development. Our branch representative for City Deals, Andrew Wallace, attended the first meeting of the Local Partnership Forum late last month. The next meeting is being organised for February 2018.

The branch also received word from the NQ Regional Planning team that the draft plan is progressing and will be reviewed after the election. Further updates have been promised as the planning continues.
