Plan to Save the Gold Coast’s Economy

9 Nov | '2020

Gold Coast Bulletin 9/11/2020

Moncrieff MP Angie Bell and other city leaders detailed key issues to help revamp the economy out of the pandemic-induced downturn in the City Heart Taskforce’s Reimagine Gold Coast report.

They include:

* The creation of an apolitical economic advocacy body to work across all three levels of government to secure and fast-track major job-creating projects such as light rail Stage 4 to the airport.

* The regeneration of Surfers Paradise under a masterplan being developed by the Gold Coast City Council.

Ms Bell said a significant re-sell of the city’s most famous suburb would bring a long-overdue face lift, create new jobs and businesses and give tourists a reason to visit.

“The regeneration of Surfers Paradise is really important because it is the face of the Gold Coast and I am working with stakeholders including Destination Gold Coast to ensure we can have a new tourism product to market to the world,” she said.

“There are a number of Gold Coasts around the world but there is only one Surfers Paradise and this is why it is so important to regenerate it.

“It must be a destination that people want to come to, stay longer and have more activities to enjoy.”
