Brisbane Road car park site options to be re-evaluated
Council is going back to the drawing board for the Brisbane Road car park redevelopment after the withdrawal of Abacus Investments Pty Ltd. Council has always recognised this important site was under-utilised in its current form. Our priority has always been to optimise what we could see delivered on this site in a way that achieved some of our important place making objectives for Mooloolaba. As a priority, we will now thoroughly explore all options, understanding that the Mooloolaba business community, in particular, needs certainty around the site’s future. When considering potential options, council will at all times focus on achieving the best long-term outcome for our ratepayers.

Get ready for a picnic in La Balsa Park
A new irrigation system will be installed in La Balsa Park at Buddina over coming months. The new system means more than half the park will be automatically irrigated, keeping the grass healthy and ready for your next picnic in the park. We’ll also be monitoring the lawns and re-turfing areas where required, so there will be plenty of grass to run around on.

At Home in my Neighbourhood
Would you like to connect with your neighbours, organise gatherings or a project? Council is looking for “Community Connectors” to help us roll out our “At Home in my Neighbourhood” program. Attend information sessions during July to find out how you can get involved. More details via our website.
