A priority Development Area was declared (September 2016) to facilitate the development of the University of the Moreton Bay Campus, located at the core of The Mill Moreton Bay. This development will support the delivery of the university, together with a number of mixed-use facilities providing education, health, retail, residential, recreation, commercial and environmental uses. The higher education precinct is anticipated to help revitalise the local area and support economic, social and environmental outcomes and priorities. Given this potential impact on the regional landscape, AEC provided a report outlining key demographic and economic indicators for the local community and economy to help understand the current landscape and environment. AEC also provided high-level population by age projections as well as employment by industry projections to understand potential growth industries in the region.
