The recent launch of the Caloundra South development is exciting news for Caloundra residents. The city will attract significant business investment which will, in turn, create work opportunities for locals. The Infrastructure Agreement is also a major win for our community, and will see well-sequenced infrastructure delivered in pace with the development. Developer Stockland has agreed to provide the infrastructure necessary to service the Caloundra South Priority Development Area, with this commitment representing a massive $1.3 billion investment, including the local road, cycle and pedestrian network and generous open space. There will also be land for community facilities, clubhouses and a Community Development Infrastructure Fund will be established. Council’s main objective all along has been to ensure the project went ahead and we captured all of the benefits it will bring to the region - but that there would not be any residual costs for ratepayers beyond those that would normally be the responsibility of council.
How safe is your pool or spa?
New state regulations regarding pool safety come into effect next week. Compliant pool barriers prevent young children from accessing swimming pools, which makes homes safer. In readiness for a safe and happy summer, all pool and spa owners are reminded that their pool barriers are required to meet the new Queensland pool safety standard before November 30, 2015. Learn more about pool safety guidelines on the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) website or follow the links from www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
