DRAFT STATE INFRASTRUCTURE STRATEGY
The Queensland Government has released the Draft State Infrastructure Strategy (SIS) and the Queensland Government Infrastructure Pipeline (QGIP).
The draft vision anticipates the State’s infrastructure needs over the next two decades and will be supported by seven regional infrastructure plans. The Property Council has long advocated for a strategic approach that reflects the unique strengths and opportunities of each region, and the important role infrastructure plays in economic recovery, resilience, growth, and liveability.
These two infrastructure initiatives will work towards giving the property industry certainty to invest and plan for projects over the next two decades as Queensland navigates unprecedented population growth, as a result of the pandemic and appeal of being the 2032 Olympic host city.
The QGIP is a detailed program of the Government's four-year $52.2 billion infrastructure spend and also outlines the potential future proposals currently under consideration by the Queensland Government.
Feedback on this draft SIS is now open until Thursday 7 October 2021.
The Property Council will be preparing a submission on behalf of the property industry, working closely with our Infrastructure Committee.
You can access the Queensland Government Infrastructure Pipeline (QGIP) here and the Draft State Infrastructure Strategy (SIS) here.
If you have any feedback or wish to contribute to our submission, the Property Council’s advocacy team would love to hear from you.
