Redland Coast Election Priorities

The Institute announces key election priorities.

Delivering a Development Incentives Package is among the top initiatives needed to keep the Redland Coast development industry powering, Institute CEO Kirsty Chessher-Brown will be telling Mayoral Candidates in the upcoming local government election.

Resolving Double Jump Road and commencing Structure Planning in growth areas are also critical.

“Our industry is single handedly responsible for 4,292 direct jobs and 5,277 indirect jobs in the region. Further to that, we pump $1,234.5 into gross regional product and $277.3 million into salaries and wages,” Ms Chessher-Brown said.

“If we want those jobs to remain in Redland Coast and those wages and salaries to continue to flow right throughout our local economy, then the community needs all Mayoral hopefuls to carefully consider our Branch’s position on local government priorities.”

The Institute is writing to all Mayoral candidates this week to provide a full run down on the top initiatives critical to supporting the local industry and economy. 

In addition to the above, initiatives include:

  • The implementation of Risksmart in Redland
  • Meeting Assessment timeframes.
