The Gold Coast is quickly maturing into a place of broad opportunity and rich experiences. The Commonwealth Games are just around the corner and we’re seeing more than $12.5 billion invested in transformational infrastructure projects. YP Gold Coast aims to have a bold voice on the most important issues and opportunities for our city. We represent no one sector or interest but we share one passion: The Gold Coast. We want to stimulate high-quality public debate and promote action on the issues which really matter for the Gold Coast.
Great Ideas for the Gold Coast is a call to action for all those with an interest in the smart growth of our city — the State government, local government, agencies, businesses and the community. It builds upon the collective ideas that have been discussed and debated at past City Leaders Forums, hosted by YP Gold Coast. The core aim of our City Leaders Forum is to unite the Gold Coast’s established business community with up and coming city leaders to create a multi-generational voice for positive change.
This report, prepared by Urbis, sets out initiatives that seek to position the city to retain its competitive advantage. YP Gold Coast are proud to be launching Great Ideas for the Gold Coast as part of the 2017 City Leaders Forum. It aims to drive discussion and effect future policy debates.
