Councillor Community Chat sessions hit the road

Published:

Here's a chance to have a chat to a councillor in a relaxed and informal setting.

Noosa councillors will visit different parts of the shire on the last Friday every month for a community chat and informal catch up with residents.

The Councillor Community Chat sessions start Friday July 31 at Cooroy, Pomona and Sunshine Beach from 10 - 11.30am.

Mayor Clare Stewart said the sessions aim to give the community a voice.

"Councillors feel it's important to provide a number of ways to engage with the community and these sessions will hopefully achieve that," she said.

"We will visit different parts of the shire from the hinterland through to the beaches, so residents can be heard and get the opportunity to raise any issues,"

"They can pop down, have a chat and even provide some suggestions or ideas," she said.

"It's a relaxed, informal way to hear from as many sections of the community as possible."

Cr Stewart said councillors are excited about the new concept and hope the community takes advantage of the catch ups.

"Their success will depend on the community's response and every councillor is committed to the initiative," she said.

There is no need to make a booking, residents can simply pop in during any time during the hour and a half session and have a chat.

The sessions will be advertised on Council's website and social media platforms.

Residents can catch up with councillors on Friday 31 July from 10am at:

  • Mountain Stop Café 4/8 Reserve St Pomona with Mayor Clare Stewart and Cr Frank Wilkie
  • Cooroy RSL Café, 25 Maple Street Cooroy with Cr Brian Stockwell
  • FOMO 18 Duke Street Sunshine Beach with Cr Amelia Lorentson and Cr Joe Jurisevic
