CONNECTING Southern Gold Coast (CSGC) general manager Jim Wilson, is confident the organisation has the support of the local community in the lead-up to the Institute of Business Leaders discussion forum later this month.

The forum is intended to offer local business leaders the opportunity to contribute their views on the CSGC economic development masterplan and essentially the future of the southern Gold Coast.

Wilson says the ‘fantastic’ feedback the organisation is receiving from local businesses will result in several thoroughly examined development matters.

“There will be quite a number of issues discussed, particularly regarding the types of industries that can go into the area, particularly Coolangatta which has such a unique business and lifestyle appeal,” says Wilson.

Wilson emphasises the large growth potential of the southern Gold Coast can only be realised with the culmination of the recently expanded Coolangatta Airport, Southern Cross University at Tweed Heads and the major hospital (John Flynn at Tugun).

“How many places in the world do you have a major airport, hospital and university all within a couple of kilometres of some of the most beautiful surfing beaches in the world? The Gold Coast is a gem,” he says.

Wilson says the IBL forum, taking place at the Currumbin RSL on September 16, is one of the biggest events the CSGC will host this year.

The informative session will outline Gold Coast City Council’s initiative to develop an economic development masterplan for the southern end of the Gold Coast stretching from Currumbin and Currumbin Waters in the north, to Coolangatta and Rainbow Bay in the south.

Key points will include:
• Coordinated response to southern Gold Coast’s requirements for new and improved infrastructure;
• Funding model to enable implementation of the masterplan;
• Future, strategic, economic development and employment opportunities;
• Impediments to growth and opportunities;
• Professional development and educational needs of the businesses in the region;
• Identification of ‘now’ action points, listing a set of cost effective and achievable initiatives, capable of delivering outcomes of specific benefit to the economic well-being of the southern Gold Coast.

Wilson encourages all southern businesses to get involved in the forum, which he believes is a large step towards developing the southern Gold Coast into a central point for businesses,
