Sunshine Coast residents will be able to provide feedback on a variety of Sunshine Coast Council projects in 2024.

Council’s economic and community development group executive Greg Laverty outlined some of the topics that locals can voice their opinions about, via the Have Your Say Sunshine Coast online platform.

“There will be a diverse range of projects open for community input and feedback this year, including regional projects such as the Sunshine Coast Community Strategy Refresh and proposed dark sky reserve,” he said.

“There will also be a variety of locality-based projects ranging from design and placemaking, to natural areas planning and transport infrastructure upgrade planning.

“Residents are able to register online and update their profile in order to stay up to date and receive important updates on projects.

“By joining our online community you can help shape these projects, our communities and our region.”

Upcoming projects to be discussed include the Nambour Place Plan, the Community Strategy Action Plan, John Hotton Park improvements at Warana and Alex Bluff Foreshore Park improvements.
