Dan Barr, Better Cities Group - Gold Coast challenges & opportunities

Episode description (22 mins)

In a broad-ranging discussion, Estella and Dan cover ground such as the Gold Coast's unique benefits and opportunities compared to other large cities, our challenges, including transport, housing affordability and workforce shortages, and a really interesting examination of how the 2032 Olympics can be a generational catalyst for making the Gold Coast a better city, and what exactly we could look like post games. If you are interested in how the Gold Coast can manage growth and opportunities, this is a must.
