The Western Downs Development Status Report identifies over $7 billion of investment in development projects in the Western Downs region as of January 2019.
Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE) in partnership with Western Downs Regional Council have produced the Western Downs Development Status Report to equip readers with knowledge including costs, locations and estimated completion dates for known developments in the Western Downs region. These include Infrastructure and Services, Property Development, Building and Construction, Resources and Renewable Energy Projects. The report provides an insight into the approved projects set to benefit the region with more jobs, whilst developing the regions infrastructure.
“Known as the Energy Capital of Queensland, and fast becoming the energy capital of Australia, the Western Downs boasts an impressive $6 billion worth of approved renewables on the books with $1.2 billion under construction: meaning 3,000 new jobs across the construction and operational phases,” he said.
This report will encourage further investment and lend confidence, while also providing businesses with important information to help them explore new opportunities in the Western Downs.
Western Downs Regional Council Mayor Paul McVeigh is proud of the region’s proactive approach towards new developments in the region and is glad to see many opportunities opening in the Western Downs.
