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

  • We collaborated with the Moreton Bay Branch and held regular meetings with Unitywater to continue two-way communication on key issues and resolve service matters
  • We ensured the voices of Sunshine Coast Branch Members were heard in our responses to pivotal matters like the SEQRP and the Draft Environmental and Liveability Strategy (ELS)
  • We engaged extensively with a range of decision makers on regional issues, advocating for further land supply in the centre and northern coast area and established smaller, UDIA Queensland-exclusive working group meetings with them
  • We have seen strong growth in our branch membership numbers this year
  • 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 Sunshine Coast
  • We hosted eight events including a regional market update, Planning System workshop and another discussing flexible housing choices for our ageing population.
