The Moreton Bay Regional Council economic development is now focused on driving more job opportunities in the area through its economic development action plan.

The Council’s plan includes investment attraction and business development which helps in unlocking thousands of job opportunities.

It was estimated that the currently available jobs in North Lakes can double from 7,700 to 13,000 by 2023. This is can be attributed to the Council’s effective master planning and major investment in infrastructure like the Redcliffe Peninsula Line, as well as high residential densities.

In 2017 alone, 900 new retail jobs opened for the community as big retailers and specialty stores flocked to Westfield North Lakes.

The addition of the $250 million Laguna North Lakes development in the area is sure to unlock more jobs for the community. Upon completion, the commercial development will feature 5,000 sqm of boutique retail, 10,000 sqm of commercial office space, a regionally significant function and events centre, a 140-room hotel, and a new aquatic centre. The commercial precinct opens up major employment opportunities for various industries.

Another application for a commercial building at 30 Torres Crescent, North Lakes is pending approval from the council. Once approved, the commercial building is set to open a hardware centre, commercial services, contractor’s depot, indoor recreation, office, technology industry, vehicle hire depot, vehicle sales yard and warehouse. That means more available jobs for the community.

Rapidly Growing Suburb

North Lakes has been named as Australia’s best master planned community last May 2017, and Queensland’s fastest growing region in the 2016 Census. There is no doubt that the region will continue to grow as more residents, job seekers, and investors are attracted to the area.
