Have your say on the Coastal Pathway

I encourage you to take a look at the Draft Coastal Pathway Master Plan and provide feedback by December 23. Council aims to provide a continuous shared pathway spanning 73km of our coastline and while there are many pathways already in place, this master plan will help guide the route and fill in the gaps where pathways need to be upgraded or constructed. You can view the plan on council’s website or in our libraries. Everyone who makes a submission will also enter a prize draw for vouchers to surf clubs, restaurants, sports stores and bike stores.

 Coolum business launch

A Coolum-based business is now competing on the global stage, after the recent launch of a new renewable battery system. I had the privilege of joining Enopte CEO Mark Leckenby to launch their product, which was fully developed here on the Sunshine Coast. This is a great example of a successful cleantech business contributing to our new economy.

A successful year

I recently attended Coolum Business & Tourism’s end of year event. The group has achieved a lot in 2016 and I would like to acknowledge their year of hard work.

Christmas wishes
As we reach the end of the year, my wife Jeanne and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I am very much looking forward to working with you all in 2017.
