Residents are invited to have their say on a proposed community facility near a soon-to-be developed marina.

Sunshine Coast Council is seeking to understand the need and demand for a facility at Spitfire Banks Drive at Pelican Waters, close to the forthcoming Pelican Waters Marina.

A series of engagement activities have been planned during May, including a pop-up engagement activity, an online survey and a virtual and in-person community workshop.

Sunshine Coast Council Division 2 Councillor Terry Landsberg said council wanted to hear from residents and community groups to find out how useful a new community facility would be in Pelican Waters.

“We want to understand the need for a community facility, and the activities that should be on offer at a future facility,” Cr Landsberg said.

“Community facilities can provide spaces for a wide range of community uses such as meetings, social gatherings, or recreational, educational, artistic, and cultural activities.

“Feedback will allow council to plan more effectively by responding to community need rather than duplicating what is already on offer.

“A variety of community engagement activities has been organised so residents can get involved in the way that best suits them.

“During this process, we’ll also aim to identify opportunities such as potential partnerships and funding sources.”

A pop-up engagement activity will also be held at Scribbly Gum Park, Pelican Waters on Wednesday, May 11, from 4pm to 6pm.

“Be sure to attend one of our engagement activities or provide your feedback online by May 23,” Cr Landsberg said.
