A Call to Action

The Gold Coast is quickly maturing into a place of broad opportunity and rich experiences, and with the Commonwealth Games just around the corner and more than $12.5 billion invested in transformational projects over the next 12 months, we are at a turning point.

The Gold Coast has a population of 562,000 and being one of Australia's fastest growing regions, the city is under pressure. It is facing the growing pains that come with being a youthful city. Now is the time to spark the next wave of maturity and evolution in our city's growth story.

Building upon the collective ideas that have been discussed and debated at past City Leaders Forums, YP Gold Coast has commissioned an advocacy report titled Great Ideas for the Gold Coast through city-shaping experts, Urbis.

The report sets out a series of ideas to support the Gold Coast's future as a global city and the vision captures the intrinsic qualities and bold aspirations to be the 'World's Best Subtropical City'.

The Ideas are built upon five key pillars that underpin our advocacy plan, including ensuring a bright future for young people, taking Gold Coast business to the world stage, creating a city that moves with ease, ensuring growth that embodies the Gold Coast appeal and developing a city that thrives from technology and digital disruption.

The key five Great Ideas for the Gold Coast explore the following themes:

  • Southport Regeneration
  • A Highly Skilled Gold Coast
  • Next Wave of Infrastructure
  • A Creative Gold Coast
  • The Missing Pieces

Great Ideas for the Gold Coast is a call to action for all those with an interest in the smart growth of our city - the State government, local government, agencies, businesses and the community.

YP Gold Coast invites you to read and engage with the Great Ideas for the Gold Coast report alongside us by providing your input on the ideas and potential barriers for change. To join the conversation visit our Facebook or email us at info@ypgc.com.au.
