What is in place now?
An ILTP already exists for SMBI, but has not been reviewed or
updated since 2002. Before then, transport planning was based on
the strategic direction provided by the first Planning and Land Use
Study, released in 1999.
The ILTP was created by consultants GHD and was well received in           Social and economic
the community (GHD has been appointed to review the plan).
                                                                           impact assessments

Why are we reviewing it?
The existing ILTP is now eight years old and travel patterns,              regarding the Weinam
population and infrastructure demands of the island communities
have changed.                                                                Creek commuter
Community engagement on transport issues – particularly relating            terminal car park.
to the recently released Redland Bay Centre and Foreshore Master
Plan – has flagged an increased use of public transport from the
Weinam Creek Marina.
Community feedback and ongoing community debate has also
highlighted existing and future transport issues that will affect island
and Redland Bay communities.
