Policy submission: Draft ShapingSEQ Regional Plan
QTIC welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning on the Draft ShapingSEQ, regional plan for South East Queensland.
ShapingSEQ is the state government’s plan to guide the future of the South East Queensland (SEQ) region.
The Regional Plan is of critical importance to the future prosperity of tourism in the region.
With the development of tourism recognised in the State Planning Policy as a ‘state interest policy’ for delivering significant economic development in Queensland, ShapingSEQ must facilitate and provide opportunities for this potential across the cities and regions within South East Queensland.
QTIC supports this planning framework which aims to sustainably manage change and growth in SEQ.
In this submission QTIC highlights where synergies with Queensland Government policies can be better supported in the plan and how tourism can be better represented as a top industry for the region.
