The report outlines ‘key stakeholder’ research and analysis where broad housing issues confronting the Bowen Basin region were examined. The key stakeholder research drew its qualitative sample from the northern, central and southern Bowen Basin areas, as well as some “head office” interviews in Brisbane and further afield. Interviews were carried out with Government, industry – private and publicly-listed enterprise, industry associations, NGO’s and community organisations. Qualitative research and analysis of the views held by the key stakeholders about the social impacts, drivers of housing development, and workforce movement within the Bowen Basin form the basis of this milestone report. Milestone report 1 informed the framing of the stakeholder research for this report; and an earlier draft of this milestone report informed the refinement of the Milestone 2 report. A draft of this report has also served to inform and confirm the framing of the case study research; the miner and community survey to be reported on in Milestone 4.
