Brisbane Road Car Park prepares for new beginning

Published:

The Brisbane Road Car Park at Mooloolaba is being reconfigured as Sunshine Coast Council gears up to construct a multi-deck car park on the north-western half of the site.
 
Divisional Councillor John Connolly said the redesign of the portion fronting Brisbane Road and First Avenue would deliver 93 car parking bays plus four motorcycle parking spaces.  Currently that portion of the site accommodates 67 car parking bays.
 
“To minimise inconvenience to businesses, residents and visitors, and retain the maximum number of car parks, the reconfiguration will be delivered in two stages, starting today (October 8) and continuing until October 18, weather permitting,” Cr Connolly said.
 
“With this staged approach, the car park will continue to be accessible throughout the reconfiguration.
 
“Council informed the traders last month that the reconfiguration works were scheduled to start after the Queensland school holidays.”
 
A development application for a material change of use and operational works for a multi-deck public parking station and commercial outlets on the north-western portion of the site fronting Smith Street and First Avenue was lodged with council on September 2.
 
The proposal includes ground floor commercial tenancies and an eight-storey carpark, which will provide more than 700 public parking spaces.
 
Cr Connolly said as with all development applications, the application would be assessed on its individual merits.

“In the interests of transparency, council has appointed an independent assessment manager to consider this development application, with a report to council expected later this month,” Cr Connolly said.
 
“Council endorsed a recommendation at its September Ordinary Meeting to start construction of the new multi-deck car park in late October. This is subject to receiving a Development Approval and the project reaching other necessary milestones.”
 
The application is available for public viewing on council’s Development.i https://developmenti.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.
