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 draft Maranoa Economic and Community Plan and 10 local community plans will be available for a final round of public consideration from 14 May - 11 June 2018. You can download copies of the plans below, or visit a Council library or customer service centre.
Before adopting the plans, Council will review all of the comments submitted.
The plans describe 'what' is proposed for the Maranoa region and each local community.
Implementation of the plans depends on community organisations, businesses, Council and government agencies developing action plans which set out 'how' to achieve the objectives in those plans.
Partnerships will be needed for implementation of many objectives.
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.
