Landsborough dog off-leash

Landsborough continues to develop as a great country town with a proud sense of history and a lifestyle that is pretty special.  Its recreation areas are an important part of this, so council has responded to community requests for a dog off-leash area, as we understand what an important part dogs can play in a family or as companions.  The proposed dog off-leash area is located south-west of Pioneer Park along Caloundra Street, Landsborough and would be suitable for dogs of various sizes.  I encourage the community to provide their feedback via an online survey on council’s website or email feedback parkscapitalworks@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au by December 23. 

Pioneer Park replacement fence update

As many of you would be aware, a few weeks ago 24 fence panels, a pedestrian gate and double maintenance gate were shockingly stolen from the All Abilities Playground Park at Pioneer Park, Landsborough. This equipment was custom made with a heavy duty design and will take some time to replace. Council staff have erected a barrier mesh fence in the interim, whilst preparing to replace the fence panels and gates. At this stage, with the busy Christmas period upon us, it is difficult to estimate an installation timeframe, however I am hoping to have the replacement fences installed by February 2017. As always, I appreciate your patience and I would like to thank the many social media users who shared my Facebook post to reach out to any witnesses.  32,751 people saw the Facebook post, with 293 shares. 

Hinterland holiday events

There will be food stalls, coffee, a jumping castle, face painting, nativity scenes, with candles and glow sticks available for purchase. Join in on all the festive fun by singing along to your favourite carols and finish the night off with a spectacular fireworks display, a fantastic family affair!

Beerwah entry sign

The design of the proposed roundabout entry statement has been completed to reflect the Butterfly Towers in the Beerwah Tower Green whilst directing motorists to the town centre via Simpson Street.  Council is seeking to start construction in early 2017 pending Queensland Transport and Main Roads approval.
