Speaking up for the Southern Downs!

1 October 2020  

As the 2020 Queensland State Election edges closer, the Southern Downs Regional Council has prepared an advocacy document for all candidates. Speaking up for the Southern Downs lists priorities to progress the Southern Downs.

Speaking up for the Southern Downs focuses on several areas of future development including infrastructure, environment, agriculture, economy, innovation, and community and calls on all candidates to support and spearhead initiatives that will boost the sustainability and liveability of our region.

Southern Downs Regional Council Mayor Vic Pennisi said that this advocacy document was developed to further grow the relationship between Local and State Governments.

“Great things happen when the different levels of government work together. But the first step is always communication,” said Mayor Vic Pennisi.

Speaking up for the Southern Downs showcases areas and projects that Council will be advocating for in future.

“We have such a diverse region with so many viable initiatives that can be explored, and this strategic document lists key projects that with State Government investment and support, could see accomplished in the coming years.”
