Sunshine Coast heading in the right direction

Member for Noosa Glen Elmes is confident that the recently formed Sunshine Coast First group will deliver improved infrastructure and planning outcomes for Noosa and the wider Sunshine Coast.

The group includes all Sunshine Coast State LNP Members and Local Government representatives meeting as a unified voice for the Sunshine Coast.

Mr Elmes said he was pleased to join Noosa Mayor, Noel Playford, and all Noosa Councillors as they attended their first meeting of the group on Monday night at Parliament House in Brisbane.

“The focus of Sunshine Coast First is to identify and prioritise major infrastructure projects for the Coast,” Mr Elmes said.

“I was very proud to be with Mayor Playford and the Councillors to work with our State and Local Government colleagues to discuss and develop the region’s future.

“To make the most of our future, it’s crucial that our two levels of government work together as a unified force to be able to lobby State and Federal Ministers to deliver for the region.

“The group’s work at present is focussed on identifying the top half a dozen or so major infrastructure priorities for the region, and then pushing to see them included in future government planning.”
