NSI meetings address economic and community issues


Regular Township meetings hosted by the Mayor; and the inaugural meeting of the North Stradbroke Island (NSI) Economic Transition Group, are some of the regular engagements held with North Stradbroke Islanders as part of efforts to build a strong future for the island which remains the jewel in the Redlands tourism attractions.

An inaugural meeting of the North Stradbroke Island (NSI) Economic Transition Group was held in December to chart the island’s transition from sand mining to an alternative economy,

The group comprises state and council elected representatives, community and business leaders, academics and government department representatives who will work towards the common goal of a sustainable future for the island and its people as mining is wound back.

The NSI Economic Transition Group is Co-Chaired by Redland City Mayor Karen Williams and Member for Cleveland Mark Robinson MP and will meet at least quarterly meetings.

The group has started work on a consultation plan, reviewing the work of the 2011 Economic Transition Taskforce and establishment of a website provide up-to-date information on the economic transition items.
