According to the document, the project seeks to provide a strong cohesive narrative of the Redlands Coast’s future that can be adopted by the Mayor, Council, the Chamber, our political and industry leaders, local media and the general community. We expect that the initiative will inform future Redlands Coast communications campaigns to residents, investors and industries. The initiative will provide certainty for all stakeholders that the Redlands is an ideal place to live, work and invest.
The Regional Jobs Committee states that they identified the need for the CRC project during industry engagement, when they became aware of a number of exciting new businesses, initiatives and projects exist which have the potential to attract investment, new residents, employment opportunities and improve lifestyles within the region.
The document identifies that one key obstacle regarding the delivery of the projects and initiatives is that industry is yet to develop a platform to work collaboratively in helping to shape a clear narrative and vision for Redlands Coast. The CRC project seeks to showcase the potential of the region and provides certainty for local businesses, investors and the community that the city is working towards a common goal.
The first major component is a research piece which seeks to understand:
- Existing, approved and aspirational projects within the region, the anticipated cost of the project and how the project will shape or advance the city-wide vision;
- How these current or future opportunities within the city can be leveraged to support or expand existing businesses, or to support the establishment of a new business within the city;
- What talent pool Redland City will need to support these projects;
- What obstacles are limiting further organic growth in sectors, particularly those identified within the Economic Development Framework (‘EDF’), from being achieved;
- Redland Coast’s opportunities in the SEQ context, considering key projects such as the Brisbane Airport second runway, Queen’s Wharf, Cross River Rail and 2032 Olympic bid;
- And more recently, what will the likely impact of COVID19 be on Redlands Coast’s project, investment and jobs pipeline.
The committee state the project will strengthen the City’s offering and attract new and innovative businesses and opportunities to the region as result of marketing the opportunities of the project pipeline. The committee will be seeking expression of interest from consultants in the coming weeks to deliver the project. [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
