Residents invited to help plan future

North Shore residents have been invited to help plan the future of their own communities in a series of workshops with the Sunshine Coast council.

To commence the land use planning review for the Maroochy North Shore, the council wants to hear from locals about their ideas for the future and of any challenges or issues that the area faces.

Division 8 councillor Debbie Blumel said the information gained from the workshop “conversations” would be the basis for the development of a future plan for the area. which in turn would feed into the council’s new planning scheme for the Sunshine Coast region.

“There are things that local people know best,” Ms Blumel said

“They are the ones who experience the daily problems with transport, traffic congestion, lack of community facilities, environmental issues, the need for open space, and the need for a fresh new look.

“Through this land use review, I hope we can engage with local people to lay the foundations for vibrant village hubs and connected communities.

“Council officers will be with me to listen to the needs of all the communities on the Maroochy North Shore.”

The community workshops will be held at:

Sunshine Coast Airport, Marcoola (Mount Coolum Room) on:

Saturday, December 6 from 9am until 1pm noon;

Wednesday, December 10, from 6–8pm, and at

North Shore Plaza (outside of Bi-Lo) on Saturday, December 13 from 9am-5pm.

Free parking will be provided for those attending the workshops at the airport.
