Community Update

 Surat, Begonia & Teelba

​Planning for the future

Maranoa Regional Council is currently undertaking a full review of our community and local plans in the areas of industry, tourism, arts, culture, sport and recreation.

Residents may remember, or have been involved in, the development of our communities' first Local Plans in 2013. Those plans have guided Council's actions over the last 4 years.

However, the region has progressed significantly over the last 4 years, new residents have come to our region, and a new Council term commenced in 2016. It is timely, therefore, to take a fresh look at where we are heading, and seek our community's input into Council's directions for the next 5 years.
