The Sunshine Coast Business Council, in collaboration with sponsor Regional Development Australia, hosted a corporate luncheon to discuss regional housing strategies at the Maroochy RSL on Friday 15 September.

Attendees included council representatives, local business leaders and community representatives who gathered to hear from the two regional councils’ Chief Executive Officers on how their housing strategies will address housing availability and affordability and the accommodation shortage for renters, tourists and those who find themselves homeless.

The event included a presentation by Jen Williams, Queensland Executive Director of the Property Council of Australia, who provided a high-level overview of the property and housing sector across Queensland and the Sunshine Coast region. Ms Williams then facilitated a panel with Emma Thomas, Chief Executive Officer at Sunshine Coast Council and Larry Sengstock, Acting Chief Executive Officer at Noosa Council to explore housing strategies, planning schemes and the Draft SEQ Regional Plan 2023 update and how these strategies will work together for the benefit of the Sunshine Coast region.
