Population boom as region turns 15

By Tanayah Wakefield

Half a million people now call the Moreton Bay Region home. It’s a milestone which adds weight to the Council’s push for city status – the outcome of which is expected in the coming weeks – and comes as the region celebrates its 15th birthday on March 15.

Population growth continues to exceed expectations, hitting the 500,000 residents mark mid-2022 – a year earlier than expected, according to most of the state’s population plans.

A Council spokesman says, based on current growth trends, the region’s population will overtake Tasmania by 2031. This will be a decade sooner than expected.

The growth is being driven by affordability and lifestyle factors, according to Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery.

Mayor Flannery says this growth means previous population forecasts will need to be revised up, with Moreton Bay Region poised to easily surpass the previous estimate of 690,000 residents by 2041.
