17 May 2006  Maroochydore City Centre future planning commences

Maroochy Shire Council is set to provide residents and business owners in Maroochydore the opportunity to discuss the future direction of the city through a series of workshops on 18 and 22 May 2006.

As part of the State Government's South East Queensland Regional Plan, Maroochydore has been designated a 'Principal Activity Centre' for the Sunshine Coast region.

Maroochy Mayor Joe Natoli said Council is eager to gain a greater understanding of issues from every sector of the community in order to assist in the structure planning of the town centre.

"It really is important that we get ideas and feedback early in the process," Cr Natoli said. "The purpose of the structure plan is to guide the future development in Maroochydore and to provide certainty to stakeholders."

Community consultation to obtain information on issues affecting the future development of the city centre and to provide opportunity for response to preliminary options developed from the first sessions will occur in May and June 2006.

The Structure Plan will be made available for extended public consultation in early 2007.

The State Government is a partner in the Structure Planning process and will maintain an active involvement in the development of the plan at all stages, through to implantation as a statutory document.

"We're currently in the process of engaging an Executive Director who will lead the development of Council's Master Plan for the future development of Maroochydore," Cr Natoli said.

"This person will establish effective networks and working relationships with the key stakeholders groups, provide specialist strategic advice on complex issues relating to the project, and facilitate the delivery and successful implementation of the planing for the Maroochydore city centre."
