  • Economic Impact Assessment of MELT Open Access Festival

    Client: Brisbane Powerhouse State: QLD To build on the existing brand presence and attendance at the MELT: Festival of Queer Arts and Culture and attract an audience from interstate and internationally, Brisbane Powerhouse has proposed to expand the festival from the confines of the Brisbane Powerhouse. The new festival, referred to as MELT Open, will be delivered across inner Brisbane (including in New Farm, Fortitude Valley, Newstead, Brisbane CBD, and West End). In support of MELT Open, Brisbane Powerhouse is seeking funds from Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) and Brisbane Economic Development Agency. In developing the funding applications, Brisbane Powerhouse engaged AEC to conduct an economic impact assessment to demonstrate that MELT Open will contribute to the Queensland economy, attract visitors to Queensland, and enhance the profile of Queensland. The economic impact assessment demonstrated that in the first year of operations MELT Open would support net additional $53.5 million in industry output, $27.0 million in gross regional product, roughly 238 FTE jobs supporting $17.8 million in wages and salaries paid within the Brisbane LGA economy (including direct and flow on activity).

  • Queensland’s Lifestyle, Weather and Affordable Housing Drives Interstate Migration

    Client: Property Council of Australia (PCA) Interstate migration in the December 2020 quarter increased by 37% compared to the previous quarter and Queensland gained the largest influx from interstate migration. Migration into Queensland is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. The Property Council of Australia (PCA) commissioned AEC Group Ltd (AEC) to investigate resident sentiments regarding interstate migration, as well as the availability and affordability of housing in Queensland. AEC engaged with metropolitan NSW (Sydneysider) and VIC (Melbournian) residents to ascertain their intentions (and drivers) of possibly migrating to Queensland, preferred locations and housing typologies. AEC also engaged with residents of Southeast Queensland to assess their perceptions regarding availability and affordability of housing in the region and to ascertain the level of comfort/ concerns with the same. The methodology adopted for the study was online sampling to ensure the broader community and varied age groups were engaged. Results from the study have now been published by PCA and are publicly accessible. The results from this study will assist PCA in their decision-making regarding the availability and release of sufficient land to ensure an affordable and functioning residential property market in Queensland.

  • Shoalhaven City Council Long Term Financial Plan

    Client: Shoalhaven City Council State: NSW AEC was engaged by Shoalhaven City Council to prepare the Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP) for the 2022-26 Resourcing Strategy. The project required AEC to complete a review of the current and future planning context and asses the alignment of current financial performance with the key plans and strategies. AEC developed the LTFP modelling and provided advice to Council on the sustainability of the proposed capital works program and service expenditure based on the current revenue strategies. Financial modelling included projected income and expenditure, balance sheet and cash flow statements for the budgeted scenario, as well as two alternative scenarios. Included in the LTFP are strategies that AEC recommended Council implements to achieve the desired long term financial sustainability and methods for monitoring the performance of the LTFP. To complete the engagement, AEC facilitated a workshop with the Councillors and Executive to present the draft LTFP and to discuss any matters of interest to the Council prior to adoption of the LTFP. The LTFP drafted by AEC is now published and available in the Resourcing Strategy on Council’s website: https://doc.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au/Displaydoc.aspx?Record=D22/273281
