Participation sought in Buddina character study
Buddina residents are being invited to have their say on the local area with a new character study.
Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said the Buddina Character Study is an opportunity for local residents to have input into those features of the local area that define Buddina and make up its special character.
"The character study will be used to help guide future decisions for the area in accordance with community needs and expectations," Cr Aldous said.
Divisional Councillor Andrew Champion said the study is in response to residents' feedback following recent consultation as part of the Local Growth Management Strategy.
"Local residents wanted an opportunity to contribute their views about what they see as special or defining characteristics of the area, as well as any potential issues that may affect the area in the future," Cr Champion said.
Cr Champion said residents' input will be used to produce a record of community values and ideas to help shape future planning.
'The study will allow the community the chance to name, describe and photograph those things that help define Buddina, as well as how they would like to see the local area managed in the future.
"Community feedback is an integral part of this study, and I strongly encourage local residents to get involved and have their say," Cr Champion said.
Community information sessions will be held on Saturday 3 (10am-2pm) and Monday 5 November (9am-5.30pm) at the Kawana Community Hall. Alternatively, residents can attend the Neighbourhood Watch meeting this Saturday 27 October from 9.30am at La Balsa Park.
Preliminary results of the character study will be displayed at the Kawana Library and Kawana Shoppingworld in December.
