Council plans for future growth
I am excited to welcome the release of the draft South East Queensland Regional Plan, which acknowledges council’s extensive planning for population growth. Following strong and consistent advocacy by council, the draft plan identifies Beerwah East in the Urban Footprint, a preferred location for long term growth. The draft plan also provides growth for other Division 1 townships such as Glass House Mountains and Landsborough, recognising their suitability for urban growth given they are located on the North Coast Rail Line transport corridor.

Anzac Day Service
I hope you can all make it to one of the region’s Remembrance Day services, I’ll be attending the Beerwah and District RSL service. I was very pleased to have been asked again to be a part of the day, it is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge all who have served. I would like to invite all residents to join me to reflect and to remember the sacrifices of our service men and women at the Beerwah Remembrance Day service, November 11. A service will also be held by the Peachester History Committee at the Peachester Cemetery from 10am, followed by lunch at the Peachester Hall.
Landsborough and District Historical Society AGM
The Landsborough and District Historical Society have accomplished a great deal over the past year, and I would like to acknowledge their efforts and commitment. With thousands of hours of personal time devoted to improving community outcomes, these amazing volunteers deserve our thanks for the work they have done over the past year and for their continuing commitment to the year ahead. The accomplishments for the year included; four new mobile display banners, grants to purchase new visitor chairs, soon to be released new education kits, participation in heritage networking group’s and much more.
Facility improvements at Landsborough Sports Complex
The facility improvements at Landsborough Sports Complex has recently been completed. The sports complex is a multi-use facility and is home to a number of sports and community clubs. The improvements included a permanent sight screen and 170 meters of PVC fencing which fenced about one-third of the main oval, a portable sight screen and the replacement of the AFL goals on the main oval with removable goalposts.
