This competition is the latest initiative by Sunshine Coast Council and the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce to encourage support of Caloundra businesses during council’s Bulcock Street streetscape upgrade.

For all the details, visit www.shopcaloundra.com.au.   

Division 2 Councillor Tim Dywer urged the community to help support local businesses during construction.

“The streetscape upgrade is an investment that will create a vibrant new look for Bulcock Street and transform the Caloundra CBD,” Cr Dwyer said.

“It will enhance the look and experience of the area, improve safety and access, and provide a new drawcard which maintains and builds a sustainable economy for Caloundra.

“However, council understands that construction may impact businesses, as often occurs during a major street revitalisation, so it is important locals support these small businesses over the coming months and beyond.”

It includes a modern, dynamic canopy lighting feature, a new street profile that removes upright kerbs to cater for events, contemporary street furniture, and extra trees and shrubs.

Other features include advanced smart city technology, a major stormwater drainage upgrade (which included replacing the water main in cooperation with Unitywater), directional signage and public art.

The upgrade will transform the section of Bulcock Street from Felicity Park to just past the Minchinton Street roundabout and is scheduled to be completed in early December (weather permitting).

*How to enter

Write your name and phone number on your receipt and place in the entry box at one of seven business locations throughout Bulcock Street including Baskin Robbins, Café 21, Night Owl, Caloundra Newsagency, Chilli Jam Café, The Source Bulk Foods and the Visitor Information Centre. One entry per valid receipt. The Golden Voucher can be used at participating Shop Caloundra businesses between 9 November 2016 – 31 January 2017.
