Couriermail --> Queensland Government unveils 50-year regional plan for southeast Queensland

Quote
WORK will begin next month on a new regional plan to map out the needs of southeast Queensland for the next 50 years.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning Jackie Trad told State Parliament she had met with the region’s mayors yesterday and had appointed two planners, Greg Vann and Malcolm Griffin, to help lead development the new southeast Queensland regional plan.

“For the first time the regional plan will have a 50-year outcome and be underpinned by a 20-year planning framework for sustainable growth,” Ms Trad told the House.

“The review process will kick off next month with a series of community conversations that will give the community, industry and councils the chance to tell us what they value most about our region.

“This feedback will help inform the development of the draft plan and we will release this for statutory consultation before the end of the year ...

==============

More plans to add to the myriad already, including the " Queensland Plan " < remember that one?  LOL

Queensland, the state of plans and not much else ..

What a joke!

Brisbanetimes --> Mayors and government unite to plan south-east Queensland's future

Quote
South-east Queensland's primary planning document is set to be updated for the first time in seven years as the region positions itself to cope for massive population growth.

The current South East Queensland Regional Plan, which called for an additional 156,000 new homes to be built in Brisbane alone, was adopted in 2009.

Deputy Premier Jackie Trad said south-east Queensland's population was set to grow to 5.5 million in the next 25 years, so it was important to plan for growth "while preserving the things that we love about our communities".

"We need to recognise this as an opportunity to grow our communities in a way that's sustainable and in a way that protects our amenity," she told Parliament on Thursday.

Ms Trad said she met with south-east Queensland mayors on Wednesday and all agreed to work together on the plan.

"For the first time the regional plan will have a 50-year outcome and be underpinned by a 20-year planning framework for sustainable growth," she said ...

The plans are never accompanied by further devising of ways to fund them -- that's always the stumbling block.  That and the re-planning when the other crowd get into office (a la CRR).  If the plan that emerges this time around is front loaded with minor stuff, leaving the heavy-lifting to 10-20 years (beyond the immediate election cycle), then we will know this is a government that wants to look good only, doesn't have the intent to plan adequately, and certainly doesn't want the responsibility to actually do something.  The whole lot then falls in a heap with the inevitable recriminations .... the councils didn't cooperate, the feds didn't come to the party with truckloads of money.

The planning should not be around ways of shovelling everyone into the Brisbane CBD in the morning and back home in the evening.  Worthwhile jobs beyond just burger flipping must be relocated to the regions so that they provide a variety of employment opportunities, not requiring people to travel to work.  How about moving whole government departments that won't be housed in 1 William Street.  (Imagine the chaos when just one lift breaks down there!)

Put Environment and Heritage Protection up Noosa way, Dept. of Primary Industries/Agriculture in Toowoomba, Mines and Energy in Gladstone/Rockhampton (close to the mines and power stations) and so on.

Then again, I have the popcorn ready for the video presentation, and I am addicted now to the smell of the varnish the printers apply to the pages of the glossy brochures Queensland Governments produce.  The cynic in me says the plan will be launched with a massive taxpayer-funded ad campaign just before the next state election.  Ah yes, the true intent will be revealed -- a plan to be re-elected.  So its only got to be a plan for two years or less.

Note the title ..... Toward Q20.  In Queensland we always plan to move towards something; but we never quite get there.  This Anna would not have a bar of Campbell Newman's plan, which relied on asset sales.  Look at all the wasted effort that went into that?  He, in turn, tossed out the Anna 1 plan.

'Planning' in Queensland involves gaining political power so you can put the public service to work nutting out your government's strategy for re-election.  In involves stalling until the new plan is ready, which is always just before the election.

Plans with finite timelines allow us to clock the failure to act.  We arrive at 2020 or 2050 and only then are able to see what we didn't do, which if we had would have avoided the even bigger mess in which we find ourselves.  There is a greater urgency to act under such circumstances, thicker glossy paper is ordered from the printers and a new plan produced.
