  • Community engaged in looking forward to 2030


    The preparation of the Sunshine Coast Community Plan has involved considerable input from local residents. It began with an extensive analysis of feedback obtained over the last five years from previous research and community consultation activities.

    Further information was derived from an independent survey of 800 people and a two day community conference held in October 2010, which was attended by a wide range of Sunshine Coast community representatives and stakeholders.

    The community appreciates that there are difficult choices and major debates ahead as we try to balance the competing pressures for economic development, environmental protection and a more equitable society.  Our community has also made it clear that it wants to participate and its voice to be heard in these future debates.

    Join the debate, add your thoughts and ideas to the online discussion forum and help shape our Community Plan and our region.
