ROCKHAMPTON Regional Council anticipates the region's population will increase by 35.24% by 2036, creating a demand for substantial housing development.
Much of the growth is expected to follow trends towards compact housing and apartment living.

These ideas will be discussed at its Compact Housing and Innovation seminar in Rockhampton today.
