Local Residents Have an Opportunity to Shape Queensland's Future


Local residents still have time to comment on the working draft of The Queensland Plan, the state's 30-year vision, with its public review period just passing the halfway point.

Member for Kallangur, Mr Trevor Ruthenberg, said feedback to date had been highly constructive with the majority of respondents supporting the draft plan.

"What we have at present is a compilation of what Queenslanders said when asked to think about their preferred future. Now we want to make sure we got it exactly right," Mr Ruthenberg said.

"We don't expect everyone to agree with what is in the draft plan. That is why we are giving Queenslanders the opportunity to give their views on the identified targets and measures."

Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich, added "the comments received so far show Queenslanders are continuing to reflect on ways to drive investment and population growth in our regions."

"They've also queried how we'll ensure core education remains current in the face of rapid technological advances, and reinforced the need to build resilient infrastructure to grow our economy."

"Queenslanders views about the draft will inform the development of the final version of The Queensland Plan, so don't miss this opportunity to help shape our state's future."
