Cr Hungerford - Atlass-Aerometrex spreads wings to Buderim
  • Thursday 21 July 2016

One of the world’s leading aerial mapping providers has chosen to relocate its Queensland headquarters to 4/99 Burnett Street, Buderim.

I’m delighted to welcome Atlass-Aerometrex and am confident locals will enjoy having them here. 

The company’s impressive list of achievements includes designing a 3D model to facilitate Pope Francis. It has already employed two local people and is looking to tap further into our region’s knowledge hub resources, supportive business environment and access to talented staff.

Time to bridge the gap

It’s with much pleasure I can advise works are forecast to commence in September on a new $2.9 million freestanding pedestrian / cycle bridge over Eudlo Creek bordering the northern side of David Low Way.

When complete the new bridge will enable a much safer and smoother crossing for the many pedestrians and cyclists who use this busy road.

Parking solution near Matthew Flinders

Local residents and Matthew Flinders parents and student licence holders will appreciate the new parking bays planned for Gleneagle Court, Buderim. Works are scheduled to start before year’s end on stage 1 of an indented parking bay plan, delivering nine new parks. Through indenting additional parking bays in the street and at the same time also extending the pathway, council aims to increase safety and convenience for residents and users. 

Grants now open

If your not-for-profit community group has some great projects planned, but doesn’t have the funding, Sunshine Coast Council’s grant programs might be able to help.

Applications are open until August 1 for the Community Grants – Major Grants and the Environment Levy Grants programs.  Visit council’s website for further information and to apply.

Councillor catch up

Interested in hearing further information about local projects and developments or have some views to share? Maybe just want an opportunity to come and meet the local person who represents your Division 7?

Then please head to the Old Buderim Post Office, Burnett Street on July 22. I’m there the fourth Friday of every month from 10am – midday to catch up with locals.
