Moreton Bay (Quandamooka) & Catchment



This section takes a comprehensive approach, drawing upon the outputs of other clusters to derive options for the management of the key economic, social and ecological issues of Moreton Bay and its catchments. We articulate the required planning and management actions necessary to achieve a liveable, sustainable and resilient Moreton Bay sub-region. This will involve taking a strategic view that includes consideration of potential natural and human-induced changes likely to affect the Bay, its communities and resources over a thirty plus year timeframe (including population growth and land development; (peri)urbanisation; outdoor recreation and tourism; land and water based industrial developments; climate change and natural hazards). In light of the history of planning for the Bay and Islands, we will make an argument for a more integrated approach to future planning, management and development assessment that seeks to protect the special attributes of this area and deliver the vision and aspirations of the community.
