    Hi Rob, thanks for the interesting economic analysis. You mentioned that there would be lower population growth (presume as a result of reduction in skilled migration levels). Will this translate into updated population projections for the LGA’s ? Particularly Central Coast where we are expecting upto 70,000 new residents upto 2036. Thanks

    Hi Melati. Thanks for the feedback, good to hear you found the session interesting. Your question regarding the impact of migration levels on population projections is a really good one. We believe the most important impact upon population projections will come from the profound economic change. Our population forecasters are looking forward to sharing our early thinking with our Council clients. I’ll ask one of them to get in touch to discuss this further with you.
