Resident’s view: Lavinia Wood says a population limit must be determined for the Redlands.LOCALS will get the chance to influence government policy during a looming review of the South East Queensland Regional Plan.
A first step in the process will occur on Monday from 6pm to 7.30pm when residents can take part in the Shaping SEQ Program
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said it was critical Redlanders took part.
“The State Government will be reviewing the SEQ Regional Plan and this is an opportunity for residents to share their great ideas on what they want to see included,” she said.
“The proposed SEQ Regional Plan will for the first time include a 50-year strategic vision for the region as well as more detailed provisions until 2041 which will guide many of our local plans, so it is important residents are part of this conversation.”
Cr Williams said city planning was an important topic in the Redlands and the event would feature a talk by New York City’s project for public spaces senior vice president Ethan Kent.
“The State Government will also be holding a series of information booths over the next six weeks, including at Wellington Point on Sunday 19 June and everyone should stay up to date by visiting the Shaping SEQ website 梧桐夜网shapingseq南京夜网419论坛,” Cr Williams said.
With the south east corner being one of the fastest growing regions in Australia, it wasvital to balance growth with the things people loved about the region.
“According to State Government forecasts there is expected to be an extra 2 million people in SEQ by 2041, with an extra 900,000 more dwellings needed to accommodate these people,” she said.
“Although the Redlands is expected to see only modest growth in the near future compared to our neighbouring cities, there is no doubt the wider south east Queensland landscape will affect us, so we need to be part of this important conversation.’’
Community Alliance for Responsible Planning spokeswoman Lavinia Wood said any review of the plan had to recognise that the region had a population carrying capacity.
Without this, it would not be possible to maintain a genuine balance between the environment, economy and community.
“As this applies to the Redlands, so it applies to south east Queensland,” she said. “Right now as we are developing houses, we are annhilating koalas.We have to stop.
“The Redlands is a microcosm of south east Queensland, Australia and the world.”
After a six-week engagement period the government will use the community feedback to inform the review of the South East Queensland Regional Plan.
“Once finalised this plan will provide the blueprint for South East Queensland, helping to plan for projected growth and how it is accommodated,’’ Cr Williams said.”…The only way to ensure the Redlands is front of mind is for us to have our say.”
The regional plan will look at topics like housing types, access to employment and better access to open space and recreation.
