Council wants to get you involved in our future through a number of community engagement activities taking place around the city throughout July and early August. This engagement will focus on three key strategies designed to help guide the future of the city. These strategies are: City Plan 2015, Economic Development Plan and Land Supply Availability Study (link to info on each strategy).
The engagements will focus on:
- topics to assist development of City Plan 2015,
- getting feedback on the draft Economic Development Plan; and
- looking at housing possibilities as part of an upcoming Land Supply Availability Study.

Redland City Plan 2015
The Redland City Plan 2015 will provide a blueprint to guide the future of the city as it grows. It will help guide planning decisions from where development can occur, right down to how easy or hard it is for residents to do something on their property.
Draft Economic Development Strategy
The draft Economic Development Strategy charts a course for the city over the next 25 years driven by an increase in local employment, increased productivity and value-adding, along with tourism growth.
The draft strategy identifies key local sectors for future growth as construction; education and training; financial and insurance services and professional services; healthcare and social assistance; niche manufacturing; retail; and tourism.
Land Availability Study
Council’s upcoming land availability study, due for release shortly, will look at the Redlands’ expected population growth and the availability of land to meet that growth. This includes meeting the needs of our future community and the different types of housing needed to accommodate future residents, both young and old.
Along with the findings of many other studies and reports already completed in the Redlands and available on Council’s City Plan website, the Land Availability Study and Economic Development Strategy will help in the development of City Plan 2015.
