Fraser Coast, 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 Fraser Coast Branch is working hard to voice member feedback on local industry matters, and we are pleased to share a few highlights from 2017: 

  • We continued to build a positive relationship with Fraser Coast Regional Council and encourage open communication so that our members’ views are shared openly and collaboratively
  • We continued to advocate on a number of matters such as stormwater planning and the Urangan South structure plan area and supported the Maryborough CBD revitalisation project
  • We kept Fraser Coast’s future at the forefront of mind by encouraging council to think ahead and plan for increasing density
  • 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 Fraser Coast
  • We hosted four events including a regional market update and another one discussing flexible housing choices for our ageing population.
