Child and Youth Friendly Redlands | Redland City Council

Child and Youth Friendly Redlands

Council's suite of planning tools under the banner Child and Youth Friendly Redlands, will help make the Redlands a city that welcomes, supports and values children and young people.

The tools are the result of the Child and Youth Friendly City project, undertaken by Council, Griffith University, industry partners and young people.

It aligns with the Council’s Corporate Plan 2018-2023 (Item 7 ‘Strong and Connected Communities’) and supports the Redlands Youth Strategy 2015-2020. It will help developers, designers, Council officers and members of the community develop plans and projects that will make the Redlands child and youth friendly.
