Moving towards 2033, the Sunshine Coast will take bold steps and chart a new direction that will afford greater stability to the regional economy, provide a broader industry and investment base and grow enduring employment opportunities.

Sunshine Coast Council is delivering new infrastructure, education programs and business development initiatives to support the transition to a new economy by 2033.

The Sunshine Coast Enterprise Corridor – stretching primarily along the coastal strip from north of the Sunshine Coast Airport to Caloundra South and bounded to the west by the Bruce Highway – will represent the key area for commercial and residential growth over the next 20 years and provide the location for many of the high valued industries.
