OUR VISION

Unity is a team of people who are passionately committed to making Cairns a better place to live and do business.

Unity is an apolitical group largely made up of people who have strong community ties and business backgrounds and who are united in their goal of ensuring the future prosperity of Cairns.

Unity’s guiding principles are to:

Stimulate and grow our economy and encourage investment;

Deliver a cost competitive council;

Ensure funding levels are adequate to maintain our assets;

Improve the livability of Cairns

Maintain or improve the level of service to the community;

Provide for new community infrastructure; and,

Place the smallest possible burden upon ratepayers in terms of the increase in rates and charges.

Unity believes that good governance is about building public trust in its ability as corporate managers and community leaders.

To that end, Unity’s focus has always been to make decisions that will enable Cairns to reach its potential as the country’s premier regional city and the biggest urban area of Northern Australia, and build upon its global tourist reputation as a must-visit destination.
