Project Overview

The first stage of the Mooloolaba Foreshore Revitalisation project is nearing completion with the highly anticipated Northern Parkland set to be unveiled in July.

Sunshine Coast Council is seeking community views on two elements of the foreshore master plan:

  • The meeting place and public amenities: to help inform the design and uses of the Central Meeting Place, including public amenities and facilities such as the deck areas.
  • Cove Kiosk, (in the Northern Parkland): to understand your views about a potential new Cove Kiosk and food and drink outlet options in the Northern Parkland.

Our community is invited to provide feedback through an online survey from 30 March to 4 May 2022.

Loo with a View - what you need to know about the current structure and design

Council has not determined the outcome of the existing facilities and won’t do so until community engagement is finalised.

Constructed in 1997, the Loo with a View includes toilets and showers, public seating, viewing and event decks and local artwork.

However, recent independent engineering and access assessments have identified that the building is suffering from the effects of age and environmental impacts. The building does not meet People with Disability access requirements. It has limited access for those in our community with a disability using mobility devices or prams.

Toilets, handwashing, and shower facilities all need to be included in the public amenities in the Central Meeting Place.

To meet modern building design standards and Universal Access Requirements, refurbishment of the existing facility will require significant redesign

One of the outcomes of the engagement will show how strongly, or not, the community values equitable access for all.

Cove Kiosk - what you need to know

The Placemaking Mooloolaba Master Plan, endorsed by council in 2015, provides for access to food and drink in the Northern Parkland. This was called the ‘Cove Kiosk’ on the Master Plan and is shown as a permanent structure on the endorsed Plan.

However, as some time has passed, Council would like to understand current community views about what type of food and drink outlets should be available in this part of the Foreshore. And, if food and drink in this location is still important to the community.

Why we need your input

In the upgrade of the Mooloolaba Foreshore council made a commitment to draw on community feedback and nature as inspiration for foreshore enhancements.

Since the endorsement of the Placemaking Mooloolaba Master Plan (2015) and the Detailed Design Plan (2019) there have been social and environmental changes affecting the Loo with a View and Cove Kiosk. In the light of these changes, council is seeking your views on these facilities.

Where to from here

The feedback received through this engagement will assist council to develop informed options for the Central Meeting Place and Northern Parkland to present back to the community later in the year.

Thank you, we look forward to hearing your views.
