Draft Economic & Community Plans

Providing local employment and access to quality lifestyles are the focus of 11 integrated draft plans released by the Maranoa Regional Council as part of its 'Connected Futures' approach to business and community development.

This approach recognises that we need both local jobs and quality lifestyles for sustainable communities.

The Maranoa Economic and Community Plan provides Maranoa-wide strategies for business and industry, tourism, arts and culture and sport and recreation. It also has Maranoa-wide objectives for services such as health, aged care, education and transport, as well as objectives for employment, environment, and community well-being.

Building on community feedback provided in 2016 and 2017, the Maranoa Economic and Community Plan provides a framework for the 10 local community plans (for the region's communities and towns).

The implementation of these plans depends on community organisations, businesses, Council and government agencies developing action plans which set out how to achieve the objectives in those plans. It is anticipated that partnerships will be needed for the implementation of many objectives.
