Following an extensive community consultation process to identify the community's values and ideas, a 15 year visionary roadmap for Landsborough's public spaces has been endorsed by Sunshine Coast Council at its Ordinary Meeting on 30 January 2020. View the Landsborough Placemaking Master Plan.
The plan presents the community's vision for the town outlining placemaking recommendations for Landsborough's streets, public spaces and future opportunities.
More than 1000 people were engaged through surveys, community events, workshops and general correspondence during three engagement phases from January 2018 to September 2019.
Cribb Street Streetscape Project
Between June and September 2019, the community were invited to participate in a series of workshops to have their say about the design for the Cribb Street streetscape.
The concept for the Cribb Street streetscape project has been finalised. View the concept.
Construction of the Cribb Street streetscape project commenced in 2020.
Stages of Engagement
All engagement for the Landsborough Placemaking Master Plan project has been completed.
Stage 1 Engagement - Values and Visioning Phase
In January and February 2018, we engaged with the Landsborough community to understand what is loved about the town and what can be improved to find a shared vision for the future. The online survey closed Wednesday 28 February 2018.
You can read a summary of some what we heard from the community in the draft vision elements.
Feedback from Stage 1 has helped to inform development of the Draft Landsborough Placemaking Master Plan.
Stage 2 Engagement - Testing the Plan
From 18 March to 17 May 2019, council sought feedback on the Draft Placemaking Master Plan and Cribb Street Streetscape project.
Three public display events were undertaken and feedback captured through a survey (available at the events and online). This phase of engagement also tested an early concept design for the Cribb Street Streetscape project.
An overwhelming majority of those who participated (97%) supported the draft vision statement and a majority (95%) supported the Draft Placemaking Master Plan.
Stage 3 Engagement - Cribb Street Streescape Reference Group
A Cribb Street Streetscape Reference Group (SRG) was established through an expression of interest promoted during the Stage 2 engagement period. The purpose of the SRG was to provide input and feedback on the streetscape design at key stages of its development. The group comprised of residents, businesses and representatives from local community groups and organisations.
The SRG convened four times between June and September 2019, plus other small-group meetings and individual meetings, including drop-in sessions with Cribb Street shop owners and traders. A draft streetscape concept was presented to the SRG for feedback in July. The final concept design was present to the broader community at a community event in November 2019.
