I recently joined local residents at the Bellvista Community Meeting Place for a very informative and engaging meeting with representatives from Stockland to learn more about stage 1 of the new Bells Creek arterial road. Stockland advise that further information sessions will be held at the Caloundra Public Library over the coming months to inform the community about the project.
How safe is your pool or spa?
It’s now time for the 34,000 plus swimming pool owners across the Sunshine Coast to check their pool or spa meets the new pool safety laws.
From November 30, 2015, all swimming pools in Queensland must be registered with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC). Once registered, pool owners should check the pool safety guidelines on the QBCC website or follow the links from Council’s website to be sure their pool or spa barriers comply.
Community action for data cable
Council has lodged a submission with the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to declare an offshore cable protection zone on the Sunshine Coast. Such a zone would encourage the private sector to deliver an international undersea broadband cable, enabling the Sunshine Coast to offer direct international connectivity to global markets.
Securing an international telecommunications cable could change the nature of high-tech industry on the Sunshine Coast and South East Queensland for generations. Visit Council’s website to learn more about this exciting project and how you can help this submission.
