Client: City of Moreton Bay
The City of Moreton Bay (Council) engaged AEC Group to undertake a “Comprehensive Economic Need and Impact Analysis” on the proposed North Harbour Marina Precinct (to comprise some 2,000 dwellings, 400 wet berths, 500 dry stack, marina village and commercial/retail/industry floor space). AEC, as the lead consultant, assembled the project team which also includes AECOM and Coriolis Marine Consultants (Coriolis), bringing together expertise in economics, property, strategy, planning and marine consulting in order to deliver this advice. Council’s purpose in seeking the advice was to establish an economic evidence base to progress the declaration of a Priority Development Area (PDA) over the proposed North Harbour Marina Precinct. The objective of the project was to understand the ‘net’ economic and market benefits that a new working marina can potentially deliver to the Moreton Bay region, South-East Queensland and the State of Queensland that will satisfy the requirements under the Economic Development Act 2012 (QLD).
