Council wants you to have your say
Words by Kylie Knight

Moreton Bay Regional Council is hosting community pop-up sessions as part of the next phase of its Moreton Says program. It is also calling for residents to be part of focus groups next month.

Mayor Peter Flannery said: “great regions and cities don’t just happen—they start with a shared vision and a set of plans based on community values and many community voices—which is why we want all residents, businesses and community organisations to play a part in shaping the future of our region.

“To make sure our plans are spot on from the start I’ve asked Council to engage with you every step of the way. We need your help to make sure our strategies and focus areas reflect the values and priorities of our broader communities now and into the future.

“Now is the time for us to act and plan for the future so we can build on all the things we love about the region; change the things we don’t like and protect what’s unique.

“This is an opportunity for us to step up and set ourselves apart from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, so we’ve come up with a draft vision with a focus on more opportunities, more liveability and more connected communities.

“We’re also developing a roadmap and five key strategies that will help drive the future direction of the region over the next 20 years and we need your help in generating the ideas we can turn into actions.”

This will bring community voices into Council's decision-making with a focus on regional strategies. To get involved, register or to find out more about our planned activities during October and November 2021, visit
