A master plan is underway for the Elizabeth Daniels Sports Complex in Buderim, and the Sunshine Coast Council is inviting locals to have their say.
Councillor Christian Dickson said that the objective of the master plan was to maximise the future potential and functionality of the complex over the next 15 years.
“Council is now seeking input from the community to ensure that the draft master plan adequately meets the needs of stakeholders and the community’s expectations of how they want to use the site,” he said.
“We have extensively reviewed how sporting groups and the broader community use the site and have balanced community aspirations with the site’s unique characteristics, such as the potential future widening of the Sunshine Motorway, neighbouring bushland and the site’s prior use as a land fill site.”
Some key features of the draft master plan include the installation of exercise equipment in the recreation park, enhanced traffic flow and management, stronger pathway connections and relocation of the children’s program.
These projects could serve to create opportunities for apprenticeships in the Sunshine Coast when the plans are finalised.
Locals can review the draft plan and provide comment at the ‘meet in the complex’ session on August 24 from 11:00 to 15:00 at the dog off leash car park at the Elizabeth Daniels Sports Complex.
