During the February 2004 State election, the Government announced a new ‘Office of Urban Management and Infrastructure Co-ordination’ would be established to coordinate regional planning in the rapidly growing region of South East Queensland (SEQ).
The Hon. Terry Mackenroth, Deputy Premier and Minister responsible for urban management in SEQ, established a committee to advise him and the Government about the structure of the new Office, the work program to complete the Regional Plan, and mechanisms for implementing the plan.
The Terms of Reference (ToR) of the Committee are as follows:
1. To recommend the structure of the new Office of Urban Management and Infrastructure Co-ordination.
2. To recommend a work program and any arrangements for consultation with key stakeholders that will deliver the SEQ 2021 regional plan.
3. To identify the mechanisms required to ensure the effective engagement of State Agencies and Local Governments in the finalisation and implementation of the SEQ 2021 regional plan.
The report provides a response to the ToR.
