By Tanayah Wakefield

Deputy Premier Steven Miles will today officially announce he’s giving the change from Moreton Bay Region to Moreton Bay City the green light.

He is expected to make the announcement with Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery later this morning.

In a statement, Mr Miles said the name change would take effect before the end of 2023.

It comes after the Local Government Change Commission recommended the classification from region to city, last month, following a request from Moreton Bay Regional Council.

The Deputy Premier has now recommend the change for consideration by the Governor-in-Council, with the change likely to take effect before the end of 2023.

“Living in Moreton Bay with my family, it’s easy to see why the region is booming,” Mr Miles said in a statement.

“The Moreton Bay Local Government Area is one of the fastest growing in the country with a population of more than 480,000. This is forecast to grow to close to 700,000 by 2041, a larger population than the state of Tasmania.
