Region’s first ever Arts Plan
A 20-year plan to grow, strengthen and actively seek opportunities to develop and showcase the region’s arts sector has been endorsed by Sunshine Coast Council, providing a road map for its approach, priorities, programs and investment in the arts.  The Sunshine Coast Arts Plan 2018-2038 is the first arts plan for the region and supports council’s healthy, smart, creative vision.  The arts plan also aims to build an ecology of support that helps us all to be more creative, and for those who choose to make their living in the arts, to be the best they can possibly be.  Developed in conjunction with our local artists and arts sector, our Arts Plan and will provide a road map for council’s priorities, programs and investment in the arts. For more information visit council’s website.


Public transport guide hits the streets
Getting around the Sunshine Coast by bus is made easy with the help of council’s Public Transport Guide.  Funded by the Transport Levy, this latest edition is your one-stop-shop to using public transport in our beautiful region, and is one of several council initiatives that help make it easier for people to get around the region. In addition to bus, train and ticketing information, the guide also contains a network map to help you plan your journey, and information on council’s Flexilink and Council Link services. I encourage residents to pick up a copy of the guide, and learn just how easy it is to use public transport in some areas of the coast. The guide is available at council offices, local libraries and visitor information centres, or by downloading a copy from council’s website.


Celebrate Seniors Week
With everything from morning teas to Queensland Ballet dance workshops there is something to suit everyone during Seniors Week from August 18-26. In recognition of the contribution our seniors make, Sunshine Coast Council has partnered with the network to highlight Seniors Week activities and events.  Head to council’s website to download the Seniors Week brochure to check out what is planned for today and over the weekend.


Working together to improve the health of the Pumicestone Passage
It’s hard to contain my excitement when I see so much dedication from a community network. The Pumicestone Catchment Network, led by Sunshine Coast Council, Moreton Bay Regional Council, the State and more than 30 stakeholders from various backgrounds are working together to preserve and improve the values of the Pumicestone Catchment Network. The Network developed and implemented a follow-up catchment action plan for the 2017-2020 period which features 32 actions to be undertaken between 2017 and 2020 by a wide range of stakeholders, under five broad goals. If you have any enquiries about the catchment management in the Pumicestone, please visit council’s website.
