A new public pontoon and walkway for the Noosa River
  • Thursday 25 September 2008

Sunshine Coast Council’s Regional Strategy and Planning Committee today supported a recommendation to build a new public jetty and walkway on the Noosa River, referring it to next week’s Ordinary Meeting for consideration.

The provision of a public jetty was included in the assessment of the Settler’s Cove subdivision and is proposed for the southern bank of the Noosa River adjacent to the Settler’s Cove development in Noosaville, opposite Noosa Sound.

Acting Director (North), Regional Strategy and Planning, Allan Hazell, said the new river access would benefit residents and visitors and that the proposed conditions would retain the visual amenity of this reach of the Noosa River.

“Work at Settlers Cove includes an access path through the development linking the local pathway network to the proposed jetty which will benefit locals and visitors looking to enjoy the area,” Mr Hazell said.

“Council hopes the proposed new public access point to the river will relieve pressure for private jetties and pontoons and that by requiring the structures to be finished in muted tones and non-reflective aluminium surfaces the visual amenity of the area will be retained.”

The Ordinary Meeting will be held at council’s Tewantin Office on Thursday 2 October.
