There are at least 7100 good reasons the Sunshine Coast Council needs to demonstrate the amalgamated Council can nurture and support the unique local character, values and economy of the many communities in the region.
The large Council's handling of the future planning of the Peregian Beach Foreshore Park and popular Peregian Original regular music events is certainly causing some concern in the local community.
Best tap into http://www.facebook.com/PeregianOriginals to hear from the event organisers and supporters.
Where is the community consulation? What is the strategic plan for the recreational needs of the Peregian Beach Community?
The Open Community Forum at the Surf Club was organised by just two of us (members of the local community), to try and demonstrate the need to connect the stakeholder and encourage open communication in our community about issues that effect our local economy and social wealth.
It was a great impromptu get together and there has been many requests to hold another.
We received no acknowledgement of an email addressed to the Mayor, Local Cr. Green, Cr. McKay & Cr. Thompson which included the letter read out & sent (25.08.12)from the Peregian Beach
Local Economic Forum held at the Surf Club three weeks ago!
No acknowledgment at all, even though it included 60 local's signatures and was addressing the LOCAL ECONOMY and SOCIAL NEEDS of our community.
