The strategic enabling projects will focus on key infrastructure projects that provide both a community and economic benefit. These projects are individually significant and will provide a catalytic boost to the local economy, as well as provide a variety of community benefits.
Strategic enabling projects for the Scenic Rim region include:
1. Bromelton State Development Area
Given its significant size and lack of competing areas, as well as the development of Inland Rail, the Bromelton SDA has the potential to provide considerable economic benefits to the region, generating hundreds of valuable jobs. Unlocking these benefits will require closely working with the State Government, which controls all planning and development across the estate.
2. Inland Rail
Inland Rail is a ‘once-in-a-generation’ project that will greatly enhance the national freight network and increase the efficiency and productivity of the national rail network. It will provide for a transit time of 24 hours (or less) for freight trains between Melbourne and Brisbane, providing a legitimate alternative to existing road freight options
3. Beaudesert Enterprise Precinct
The expansion of the Beaudesert Enterprise Precinct provides new investment opportunities for businesses (which differs greatly to the Bromelton SDA), ensuring that the region can accommodate a range of business and industries, thereby creating valuable employment for residents.
