Cr Frank Wilkie and Economic Development Manager Anthony Dow check out id.Services on council’s website

With just a few clicks of the mouse, locals can now access a range of Noosa specific statistical data.

From local housing prices to building approvals, hospitality figures and community statistics; data and trends can be accessed via Council’s website.

Deputy Mayor Frank Wilkie said this information would be useful for anyone wanting to better understand our community.

“We’ve been working with id.Services to provide this one-stop data access point so anyone can freely access the most up-to-date data on Noosa.

“This will be useful for local enterprises, in particular start-ups, investors and small businesses that want to do due diligence, submit tenders or apply for grants.

“Local industry data is critical for successful enterprises who strategically plan ahead.”

Until now, Noosa-specific data from sources such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics was hard to extract and often focused on the wider Sunshine Coast or South East Queensland regions.

This initiative profiles all Noosa data in one place on Council’s website.

Economic Development Manager Anthony Dow said strategic partnerships made the collaboration a very affordable option for Council.

“This data is now available to everyone and it means our local community doesn’t need to wade through complex statistical websites to find relevant data on Noosa.

“Whether you’re a local wanting to know how our economy is tracking, or a small business looking for information for a grant application or presentation, this data will make project management, small business planning and informed decision making a lot easier,” he said.
