What we do

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Logan & Redlands is part of a national network of Committees made up of local leaders who work with all levels of government, business and community groups to support the economic development of their regions.

RDA Committees have an active and facilitative role in their communities and a clear focus on growing strong and confident regional economies that harness their competitive advantages, seize on economic opportunity and attract investment. 

There are 55 RDA Committees around Australia, including 12 in Queensland, each made up of committed local volunteers with a strong grass roots understanding of their regions. 

RDA Logan & Redlands works within the Logan City and Redland City Local Government Areas.
