The Committee works within the Gold Coast Local Government Area and its role is to:

  • support regional planning across all levels of government
  • work with the community to identify and take action on critical economic, social and environmental issues
  • provide advice to local communities and government on programs and services which will help develop new opportunities in the region
  • contribute to business growth and investment plans, environmental solutions and social inclusion strategies.


RDA Gold Coast builds relationships across all spheres of government, the private sector and the community. Local stakeholders are encouraged to work with the Committee on priority areas for the Gold Coast such as: creating jobs and developing skills; building inclusive communities; developing more creative and affordable housing options; improving town planning and other regulatory processes; developing appropriate infrastructure; and attracting new industry and investment.

By mobilising local resources, the Committee is a key catalyst for sustainable development in the Gold Coast region, as well as an important advocate for the community. The Committee also works in cooperation with the neighbouring South-East Queensland and northern NSW RDA Committees on projects and initiatives with cross-regional benefits.
