New recreation facilities are set to be constructed on the Elliott Heads foreshore but first Council is seeking community feedback on the location and inclusions.
Funding for the facilities was announced as part of #BRCbudget19 with residents now given the opportunity to have their say before conceptual designs are finalised.
Bundaberg Regional Council parks portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said feedback for the Elliott Heads recreation facilities was now open until February.
“There are two possible sites for the location of a new recreation area which residents can provide input into,” Cr Honor said.
“One of which would place the recreation facility near the kiosk opposite the holiday park and a second option which would see it situated next to the Elliott Heads Hall and close to the existing playground.
“Our parks team is also interested in hearing local knowledge about the area like how and when it’s used now, which will help them to understand how best to meet community needs around the area’s development.”
Divisional representative Cr Scott Rowleson said, in addition to location, the community was invited to provide feedback on the style of the Elliott Heads recreation facilities and the elements it could include.
“We’d love to hear from local families about what facilities are most needed to keep our youth entertained in this area,” Cr Rowleson said.
“Through the consultation period there will be many options discussed but what we’re really after is feedback from the community.”
Feedback will be open until 3 February 2020.
The feedback will then help to inform the conceptual design which will also be made available for community check-in.
Construction of the Elliott Heads recreation facilities is not expected to be underway until 2021, with the project required to be completed before the end of June 2021.
To provide feedback complete the online survey or head to one of two community conversation days onsite from 9 am to 11am on Wednesday, 18 December and Saturday, 1 February.
This project is a joint initiative of the Queensland Government and Bundaberg Regional Council.
