Speed reviews on hinterland roads

Traffic counts were installed on Burgum Road, Maleny on 18 March 2017. Council is currently awaiting data analysis to assist our investigations. 

Investigations are also being carried out into the speed limit along Western Avenue at Montville. Council officers will install traffic counts on Montville Road to assist us in our investigations.

Hand carved doors opened at Mary Cairncross Rainforest Reserve

I had the pleasure of joining Mayor Jamieson to officially open the hand crafted wooden doors in their home at the Mary Cairncross Rainforest Discovery Centre.

The doors took the Blackall Range “Woodies” more than 1000 hot hours to carve and are just part of the outstanding contribution the guild makes to the Sunshine Coast community.

What they’ve produced here for everyone to see at Mary Cairncross is simply magnificent. The doors are such a fitting welcome statement for the new centre.

Sister cities association welcomes wood carvers to the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

Today we will officially welcome two woodcarvers visiting the Sunshine Coast on a reciprocal visit –Cecile Sakilia from New Caledonia, Tekohu Taupotini from the Marquesa Islands. Our guests will be making two hand-carved gate sentinels and taking part in the Maleny Wood Expo which kicks off this evening. The Maleny Wood Expo is a wonderful event and I encourage those who haven’t been before to come and see all the incredible works and techniques on display.

Have your say on the draft Environment and Liveability Strategy

The Draft Environment and Liveability Strategy will guide growth and shape the Sunshine Coast for future generations.

The draft strategy focuses on ways to preserve the natural environment while enabling a good quality of life for all residents in an accessible and well-connected built environment.
