The Property Council has supported the expansion of the Sunshine Coast airport in a submission on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) released by Government.
Along with other key stakeholders, the Property Council worked closely with the Sunshine Coast Council on the development of the Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Strategy 2013-2033 (REDS).
Integral to the success of the REDS 20-year vision for the future of the Sunshine Coast, is an airport capable of servicing current and predicted demand for passenger and freight services.
The airport is expected to deliver $4.1 billion to Gross Regional Product between 2020 and 2040, along with generating over 2,000 direct and indirect full time jobs by 2040.
The Property Council is pleased to provide its support for a project that will not only cater for a growing population, but will also establish the infrastructure necessary to support the region’s economic growth and competitiveness.
