Community Growth Action Plan

The result of community consultation during 2015

Success for Crows Nest is best determined by the residents themselves, based on their aspirations, ideals and value systems. In order to better understand what these are, Council facilitated a number of meetings with community members to draw out what issues the town is facing, identify what the potential solutions and opportunities might be and to determine which ones should be focussed on as a priority. These have been documented in this Community Growth Action Plan.

The Plan identifies the actions that the Crows Nest community agreed should be the priority for collective effort. They are:

  • Develop a Crows Nest Tourism Strategy.
  • Investigate opportunity to undertake a feasibility study with the purpose of investigating the viability of an indoor swimming pool to be open year-round.
  • Identify opportunities to attract increased number of caravan and RV tourists by utilising unused saleyards for free camping.
  • Lobby with Education Queensland to extend the local high school to include Year 11 and 12.
  • Improve the level of detailed information of Crows Nest on the TRC website by including a profile of the community and identify key events, attractions, facilities as well as investment opportunities for new businesses.
  • Investigate opportunities to establish free Wi-Fi access for local residents and visitors in Centenary Park. 
  • Investigate opportunity to make Crows Nest a RV Friendly Town.


The plan will be on the agenda of each future meeting of the Tourist and Progress Association.
