Vision for development in Toowoomba

The Toowoomba Branch organised an exclusive event with David Janetzki MP and Trevor Watts MP where they provided their vision for development in the region.

It isn’t an event that happens often and attendees were offered unique insight into our elected leaders’ thoughts on key matters relating to development in the region.

Trevor Watts spoke about the importance of an inland rail system for migration from Toowoomba to Brisbane and car parking in the CBD. David spoke about the big picture and royalties for regions, a government initiative. He also spoke about infrastructure charges.

Branch President Stephen Bowers said the branch was thrilled to have both Mr Janetzki and Mr Watts speak at the event.

“It’s really important the industry stays connected to the State Government and opposition thinking for development in the area and have the opportunity to provide feedback,” Mr Bowers said.

“The branch committee members and I appreciate the time Mr Janetzki and Mr Watts committed to networking with our members at this event and we look forward to working with them in future.”
