Powell Media Release – Queenslanders to shape the future of the state (20 March 2013)

Queenslanders are encouraged to provide their views to shape the future of the State with Premier Campbell Newman launching The Queensland Plan.

The Queensland Plan is a collaborative process that will involve the community, industry and all levels of government to set the long-term vision for the state.

Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP is inviting all Queenslanders to contribute their ideas so that the Newman Government can gain a clear picture of where our community want the state to be in 30 years’ time.

“This plan is a 30 year vision for Queensland that will be developed over the course of 2013 through a collaborative process involving community members, business and industry representatives, state and local government officers and Members of Parliament. 

“The Queensland Plan will not be a Government vision; it will be Queensland’s vision,” Mr Powell stated. 

The first summit will be held in Mackay on Friday 10 May followed by extensive community engagement through until August with the Brisbane summit to be held in September 2013. 

“I am inviting anyone in the Glass House electorate who is interested in joining me for the Mackay Summit to email my office explaining in 25 words why you would like to participate in this event. 

“All costs will be covered and you must be able to travel on Friday 10 May.  Please send your email to by Wednesday 27 March.

“Online resources and a comprehensive website will also allow Queenslanders to give their views if they can’t be involved in face-to-face discussions.”

“I encourage Queenslanders make the most of the opportunity to shape our State,” he said.

“We need to work together to create our long-term future for a great State with great opportunity.”
