RDA Logan and Redlands continues its engagement with key stakeholders across the region
Over the past 12 months the RDA Logan and Redlands Board has held meetings across the region with key local businesses, community representatives and individuals. The Board has held meetings at Springwood, Sirromet (Mount Cotton), Indigiscapes (Capalaba), Spirits of the Red Sand (Beenleigh), North Stradbroke and the Southern Moreton Bay Islands and, most recently at Yarrabilba Secondary College.
At the Yarrabilba meeting on 21st June 2022, the Hon. Gary Hardgrave, Chair of the RDA Logan and Redlands Board said “I would like to thank all members of the local community who attended this meeting and shared their views with the RDA Logan and Redlands Board.
“The Board recognises there is great value in conducting community consultations such as these, particularly when driven by the specific purpose of gathering insights to be captured in the updated Regional Plan and the related planned Summit to be held in September 2022.”
Continuing the theme of previous meetings the Board’s purpose in visiting Yarrabilba was to directly hear about the challenges and opportunities facing Yarrabilba, Flagstone and Jimboomba as the Logan and Redlands Region repairs from the economic and social impacts of the pandemic and begins to explore the opportunities arising from the recent signing of the SEQ City Deal and as preparations for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games are pursued.
The Board has come away from its meetings with businesses and community representatives with a substantially deeper understanding of the issues confronting the local economy and the residents of the region. RDA Logan and Redlands looks forward to continuing the discussion as we move forward and realise the potential of our region.
In order to continue building on this dialogue, RDA Logan and Redlands is planning an inaugural, invitation only investment summit to be held in September 2022. The Summit will bring together all three levels of government, and private, public and community sector organisations to address the barriers to and opportunities for growth within the South East Queensland region.
