In September 2019 RDA Logan & Redlands released its Annual Business Plan Summary 2019-2020. Over the intervening period, the RDA has developed the position paper Logan and Redlands: The Centre of Economic and Employment Growth for Queensland.
The document was developed through extensive consultation including with the three levels of Government, industry organisations, businesses and community organisations. Socialising of concepts during the development phase of the document was met with a mixed response ranging from enthusiasm and optimistic support through to rejection. This gives some comfort that the issues identified have been considered and provoked critical thinking.
The region is strategically positioned within the growth corridor for South East Queensland and is ripe for development. It has substantial economic capacity in the areas of Health Care and Social Assistance; Advanced Manufacturing; Infrastructure; Transport, Logistics and Warehousing; Education and Training; Professional Services; Tourism; and Research. The opportunity exists to translate this capacity into sustainable economic growth.
