Truth about SEQ growth plan: Vision aplenty but no money to achieve it

South-east Queensland’s civic and business leaders are increasingly vocal in their criticism of the major blueprint meant to guide the region’s growth over the next 20 years, saying it is worthless without firm commitments to build the roads, railways and other infrastructure needed to make it a reality.

Ipswich Mayor Teresa Harding and respected urban planner Laurel Johnson zeroed in on the South-East Queensland Regional Plan’s flaws at a function run by business lobby the Suburban Alliance on Friday morning.

Harding called for commitment to better public transport and a sustainable policy on waste management as priorities for Ipswich, citing a rail link between Ipswich and Springfield as a priority.

Johnson, a member of the state government’s housing supply expert panel, said the “decoupling” of the SEQ Regional Plan from related commitments to infrastructure investment was a major problem for the region.
