Council is a strong advocate to both the Federal and Queensland Governments for the investment, policy and projects needed in our region.
Below are links to relevant advocacy initiatives and documents.
Cairns 2050 Shared Vision
The Cairns 2050 Shared Vision provides the foundation for our advocacy initiatives. Our aim is for Cairns to be recognised as the World’s Most Liveable and Enterprising Regional City and the shared vision provides the framework as well as the individual projects, investment and policy necessary to deliver on that objective.
Cairns Region City Deal Proposal
Throughout 2018, Council and key stakeholders worked collaboratively in developing the Cairns 2050 Shared Vision. Using it as a foundation, Council has again worked with key stakeholders to develop the Cairns Region City Deal Proposal Document (‘the Proposal’).
The Proposal clearly articulates how a City Deal can unlock Cairns’ full potential and deliver significant benefits for the region, the State of Queensland and Australia as a whole.
