SunROC hosts forum to address noisy sports issues
The Sunshine Coast Regional Organisation of Councils (SunROC) will host a Community Forum to start a recently commissioned project in relation to noisy and hard-to-locate sports across the region.
SunROC Chair and Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said the Community Forum will be conducted by SunROC's Sunshine Coast Noisy and Hard-to-Locate Sports Project Team led by Caloundra City Councillor Don Smith and Maroochy Shire Councillor, Greg Rogerson.
"The forum will ensure that individuals, clubs and community groups involved in such activities have an opportunity to provide input into current investigations," Cr Aldous said.
"The project team will establish which motor sports, shooting disciplines and other associated noisy and hard-to-locate activities are under pressure from urban growth.
"It will identify what activities the community requires, what might be realistic in terms of future provision and they will then prepare a plan for the future of these sports.
"Ideally, future facilities will be located in areas where they will not be put under pressure from future urban growth and development."
The Sunshine Coast Noisy and Hard-to-Locate Sports Community Forum will be held at the University of the Sunshine Coast on Tuesday, 4 December, at 7pm. Registration is essential and can be made by telephoning the Maroochydore Office of Sport and Recreation Queensland on 5479 1199 by November 30.
The Community Forum forms part of the Sunshine Coast Noisy and Hard-to-Locate Sports Study which is funded by SunROC, Sport and Recreation Queensland and the Department of Infrastructure and Planning, Property Services Group. The study will be conducted from November 2007 - February 2008. During this time the community will have further opportunities to provide input via an online survey conducted by TredWELL Management Services, the consultants managing this project.
