^^Not a plan but similar moving towards a low carbon sustainable future, worth filling out. There is a question in there how to move people towards public transport. Also how to connect our regional cities. I mentioned in the survey connect Regional Cities with clean electric freight and Rail services https://www.getinvolved.qld.gov.au/gi/consultation/3000/view.html Closes 02 Sep

Away we go ... again .... just what we need, more ' visions '  hey ...

Brisbanetimes --> Future of Queensland probed to develop blueprint for the state

Quote
... Deloitte Queensland has launched FutureNow, described as a way to start a conversation about a vision for Queensland in 2027.

Over the next six months, Deloitte plans to work with government, communities, individuals and businesses to create a road map to a vital and successful Queensland.

The plan is described as a piece of "co-designed thought leadership" to develop an economic and broader policy narrative to help shape the future of Queensland.

Deloitte Access Economics chief executive officer Mike Kissane said the five key areas that would be important to the state over the next 10 years were tourism, agribusiness, education, health and ageing and transformation in energy and resourcing.

It is the first step in the Shaping Future Cities Queensland initiative, aimed to deliver a similar blueprint for Queensland in April 2017.

The steering committee includes members of QSuper, Uniting Care Queensland, the Local Government Association of Queensland, the Queensland Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, Springfield Land Corporation, Star Entertainment Group, AgForce Queensland, Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland, the University of Queensland and the Queensland Resources Council.

In its initial meeting, the group cited the state's "lucky" geography and climate, world-class resources and energy, renowned universities, health facilities and agriculture capacities as examples of its diversity.

We already have The Queensland Plan, which is good for 30 years. So that takes us up to around 2044 or thereabouts.
Legislated also

http://www.queenslandplan.qld.gov.au/

Why bother with more and more planning if they become obsolete in two or three years time?

Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

Being in government isn't about doing things, it is about being seen to be doing things! Doing things is very expensive, making plans only costs a few million and most importantly, requires hiring people which reduces the unemployment rate!

See below: The Queensland Planning Cycle. You're welcome! :-r
Is it really that hard to run frequent, reliable public transport?

w00t! w00t!  On a roll now ...

' THE new “Advancing our cities and regions” strategy is smart, pragmatic politics by the Palaszczuk Government. '

Couriermail --> Queensland Government land sell-off to fund urban renewal

Quote
STATE-OWNED land in Queensland cities will be sold by the Palaszczuk Government to kickstart urban ­renewal precincts and bankroll new infrastructure.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk will outline the new strategy in a speech today in Townsville, where she is governing for the week, in the hope of reviving Labor’s flagging electoral fortunes.

A leaked copy of the strategy reveals developers will have to tailor their proposals to meet Government priorities to snare prime sites.

Southeast Queensland sites identified in the strategy include Mayne Rail Yards at Bowen Hills, properties at Boggo Rd, Roma St and Woolloongabba, a former university campus in Carseldine and a vacant college at Oxley.

Regional renewal precincts include the Townsville waterfront, Toowoomba railway parkland and city centre sites in Mackay, Hervey Bay and Rockhampton.

In the strategy foreword, Ms Palaszczuk and Deputy Premier Jackie Trad state the Government would create jobs, drive growth and build better-connected communities “through the strategic reuse and renewal of under-utilised and surplus government properties”.

“This initiative will enable suitable properties to be reviewed, renewed and repurposed in ways which will deliver a range of economic, community and financial outcomes,” the leaders claim.

The development industry is expected to support the strategy as significant tracts of state land are in unrivalled ­locations and have been locked up for generations.

Eight economic and community zone types have been identified, including southeast Queensland and regional city urban renewal projects and health and housing precincts.

Government departments will be tasked with identifying surplus sites that may present development opportunities.

“Developments will need to deliver strong community benefits, meet broader government priorities such as ­innovation, affordable housing and expanded tourism and will involve engagement with local governments, the community, stakeholders and industry,” the strategy states.

One of the zones is a corridor along the route of the $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project from Bowen Hills to Boggo Rd where there is vacant land.

The strategy states prominent land parcels along the CRR route, such as Mayne Rail Yards, would offer multi-billion-dollar transit-orientated development opportunities.

“Income generated from developing sites within the corridor will be used to contribute funding towards CRR and to create exemplary ­public spaces and other ­infrastructure for the community,” it states.

THE new “Advancing our cities and regions” strategy is smart, pragmatic politics by the Palaszczuk Government.

It seeks to use surplus land to build better communities and fund much-needed infrastructure. Currently, the State Government is sitting on some $300 billion worth of ­assets while its ability to buy new infrastructure is dwarfed by a mountain of debt.

While the wisdom of keeping income-earning assets in such an environment can be questioned, this strategy doesn’t contravene that commitment. Instead, it seeks to exploit another area of assets; the state’s property portfolio.

It aims to better integrate services and improve the livability of our cities while freeing up infrastructure funds.

Selling and leasing land won’t fund the entire backlog of infrastructure, but Jackie Trad’s willingness to innovate around roadblocks Labor has created should be welcomed.

The Advancing Our Cities and Regions Strategy can sit on the shelf beside the Advancing Queensland Strategy.  We're moving, but to what end?

More cash wasted than any other country on infrastructure projects

Blowing infrastructure cash: Australia wastes $126m per $1.3b invested


Australian infrastructure projects waste $US97 million ($126 million) for every $US1 billion invested. But that's an improvement. 


Australia, along with many other parts of the world, has a terrible track record managing large infrastructure projects. Cost blowouts and delays are common, particularly in government-funded transport and telecommunications projects.

A new global report to be released in Sydney on Wednesday will show that while the billions in wastage is still there, things are improving. Australia still lags the global average, though, in terms of project management performance and needs to look at initiatives being taken in the United States and New Zealand to better manage big infrastructure projects.

PMI, a US-based organisation which certifies project management skills and tracks wastage in infrastructure spending, releases its annual survey in Sydney on Wednesday. It will show an improvement in the number of projects completed successfully in 2016 for the first time in five years.

The money wasted has fallen to $US97 million ($126 million) for every $US1 billion invested, an improvement on the average of $US122 million per $US1 billion wasted in the previous year. But Australian organisations came in below the global average, wasting an average of $US108 million for every $US1 billion spent. The survey included 187 Australian respondents working on big projects.

It does compared to other countries. Prime example is money spent on numerous plans etc... prior to a peice of infrastructure being built. Some also say too much union thuggery delays projects and increases costs.

Can't see anywhere in that where it specifically says we waste more cash than any other country on infrastructure projects, just that we are worse than the global average, which is not really that surprising.

It's still a waste of cash when there are so many unnecessary hurdles red tape and union set backs. Look at the Commonwealth games development. Unnecessary stopages and blockades.

Another one to add to the "Plan" list:

Quote
A spokesman for Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said a new 10-year transport co-ordination plan was adopted by the Palaszczuk government last October.
