Your lifestyle, your economy, your say
Words by Nick Crockford

You can help shape the future of jobs, business and nightlife in our region through the latest Moreton Says Survey.

Moreton Bay Regional Council wants to hear residents’ opinions on the region’s nightlife, job prospects and business conditions before March 29.

“Your feedback is how we ensure we continue delivering better services for our community,” Mayor Peter Flannery said.

“Council can only plan so much without the input of residents, which is why we’re asking you to tell us your thoughts on jobs, business and even local nightlife.

“It might be as simple as wanting to take BYO wine to music events in your neighbourhood, or permitting drinking areas at particular locations.

“Maybe you want to see more initiatives to create a vibrant night-time economy with more food options?

Your ideas

“Or you’re worried about local employment opportunities for your kids, or retraining later in your career? We want to hear all your ideas.”

The Regional Economic Development Strategy 2041 (REDS) outlines plans for Moreton Bay to expand into a $40 billion economy, create 16,000 new businesses and 100,000 jobs by 2041.

“Feedback from residents will help us get there,” Mayor Flannery said.

“Part of our growing economy and population is where to put nightlife hubs to help enhance lifestyle without impacting homes negatively.

“Nightlife contributes to our local economy by incentivising new small businesses and creating jobs for locals, while giving our communities unique characteristics.”
