Sunshine Coast Council anticipates a flood of thoughts and ideas on the draft Caloundra Centre Master Plan as the end of the public display period approaches.

Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer said he was pleased with the broad interest that the community has shown so far to revitalising the centre of Caloundra.

"Hundreds of individuals, community groups and industry representatives have attended the local information displays and individual meetings and group presentations to share their ideas and visions for the future of our town centre," Cr Dwyer said.

"Displays at the Smart Centre at 63 Bulcock Street, Caloundra Street Fair, Caloundra Music Festival and local libraries have experienced high volumes of interested visitors.

“Feedback has been positive with particular interest in the town square, Otranto Avenue Street Park and the new road proposals.

“The draft master plan proposes a range of economic, social and urban design initiatives aimed at securing the centre’s position as a vibrant, welcoming and prosperous hub on the Sunshine Coast.

“It is the culmination of previous consultation and recent work involving council, the community, local businesses and tourism operators, anchored by a strong vision for the future of Caloundra.

"I commend the planning staff for their efforts assisting the community to have the best understanding of the draft master plan.

"If you haven’t done so already, I encourage everyone to take a look at the draft master plan in the coming days and to be sure to provide feedback to council before the end of the week.

"The convenience of online access to the project website for the community to share their thoughts has proven popular.

“There has been strong interest online with more than 2000 visits to the project website ‘Have Your Say Sunshine Coast’ and under 200 surveys completed since consultation began."

Community feedback will close on Friday, October 7.
