What do you want to see in SEQ’s future?

The South East Queensland Regional Plan determines the future of SEQ: what is developed and what is not; which habitat is saved and which is destroyed.

The SEQ Regional Plan is the most important plan for the region: it overrides all other plans such as local plans or master plans.
