Community consultation on ASF’s project

The community feedback will determine the casino’s future.

Australia.- The State Government will begin a two month period in which the community will give its feedback on the proposed US$3 billion casino resort that ASF Consortium wants to build in Queensland, Australia.

According to the Gold Coast Bulletin, the process consists of two different programs, one with the company’s proposal and other on environmental and amenity improvements in protected land on the location. Two reports by the Government will be ready before the consultation period ends in mid-April, and the outcome of this process will determine the next steps of the project. Louis Chien, ASF director, said: “ASF encourages the Gold Coast community to participate in the State Government’s consultation process. We want everyone to have their voice heard throughout this consultation process, and have their say about the Gold Coast’s future.”

“It is time to move forward because this will be an employment hub for now and for generations to come and will make sure the Gold Coast can continue to shine after the Commonwealth Games comes to a close,” he added. The process consists of phone surveys sessions for residents, finance briefings and online surveys.

The project is set to offer more than 10.000 employment positions as well as additional 1 million tourists to the Australian state. The Southport Split integrated resort will be constructed on a 5 hectare waterfront that is located near the Gold Coast Fisherman’s Co-operative, and is expected that it will boost the economy when all the facilities are open to the public.
