Redlands Coast residents are invited to share their ideas on how their communities could be made even stronger.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said Council has opened public consultation on two important draft strategic plans aimed at safeguarding Redlands Coast’s much-envied lifestyle.
“The Redlands Coast Stronger Communities Strategy 2024-2027 sets out a framework for planning and delivery of approaches and initiatives to ensure that we continue to strengthen the social fabric of our city,” Cr Williams said.
“Also open for comment is the Redlands Coast Young People’s Action Plan 2024-2027 that is focussed on building safe, strong and connected communities that cater for the needs of our young people.
“There are approximately 24,500 people aged between 12 and 24 living on Redlands Coast, representing 15.5 percent of our city’s population.
“Young people need good access to social infrastructure and services, housing options, welcoming open spaces and a range of suitable sport, recreational, cultural, educational and employment opportunities.”
Cr Williams said the Stronger Communities Strategy 2024-2027 aimed to safeguard Redlands Coast as a city with a naturally wonderful lifestyle, connected communities and a city that is ready to embrace opportunities.
Community consultation on both plans is now open.
“I encourage all residents, business operators and those who work in our city, to take some time to explore the draft documents for both the Stronger Communities Strategy and the Young People’s Action Plan, and share with us your feedback,” Cr Williams said.
“Your thoughts and insights will help guide these important documents, which will contribute to shaping our communities and city.”
The consultation period continues until 5 December 2023. To review and comment on the plans, go to yoursay.redland.qld.gov.au or follow these links:
