Logan councillor vouches for infrastructure

A Logan councillor has spoken in favour of upgrading local infrastructure, as the city’s population grows. 

Division Eight Councillor Jacob Heremaia rose to speak on the matter in Wednesday’s Ordinary Meeting of Council.

It comes as Logan’s population grew by 1.8 per-cent in 2021, to an estimated resident population of 348,020, with a population density of 362.7 persons per square km.

Councillor Heremaia says the area has a growing population that needs investment in roads, parks and infrastructure.

 

 

Over the next 20 years, the city will continue to accommodate a significant proportion of South East Queensland’s population growth and is projected to have a population of 548,724 by 2041.

The city’s network of centres will each play an important role in supporting increased development, employment and the delivery of services.

Logan’s centres include Beenleigh, Browns Plains, Logan Central, Loganholme, Meadowbrook, Shailer Park, Springwood, with Flagstone and Yarrabilba identified as key growth areas.

The city’s true growth over the last couple of years, will be revealed when the Australian Bureau of Statistics releases the 2021 Census data in June.
