Should we not be concerned that while our population is growing, our open space recreational areas are diminishing!
I am sure I am not the only one who chose to live or regularly holiday in Peregian Beach because of the visionary and sustainable Town Plan.
OK, you may not have looked up the zoning map on the Council Website or the hard copy Noosa Plan at the Council chambers like I did, but it is obvious, when you walk through the town and along the beach where the beautiful bushland dunes conceals the low rise housing, that this is a great plan...a model town...with a community that has clear values.
The Peregian Beach area is unique and one of the only coastal Australian towns that is centered around a town square with a defined commercial precinct in the centre of a receational precinct.
This town is a great model for small independent retail & commercial businesses creating unique character for the place.
It is a walkable town in a wonderful subtropical climate.
It has regular markets and music in the park to support the local surf club and the social & cultural needs of the local community.
In order to keep this beautiful balance there must be respect for the town plan and all the community group values and visions.
The Peregian Beach Community have shown unity again and clearly communicated to our Council that they do not support commercial development on the Bowls & Beach Volleyball site.
The Bowls Club site has always been used for open space recreation. Forty years as a lawn bowls club and currently a beach volleyball venue.
It is zoned open space recreation and it has been identified that Peregian Beach is under provided in open space recreation.
Please find another letter sent to Council by the PBCA opposing commercial development on the Bowling Club site.
The Sunshine Coast Council's new townplan is yet to be present to the community for their thoughts and views.
