Shape strate­gies

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

A RE­GION-WIDE set of de­sign guide­lines that will help pro­mote and main­tain the Sun­shine Coast’s dis­tinct char­ac­ter­is­tics is be­ing de­vel­oped by Sun­shine Coast Coun­cil with the as­sis­tance of the de­sign in­dus­try, pri­vate sec­tor and the broader com­mu­nity.

Coun­cil is invit­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers to have their say on what they love about the Sun­shine Coast, as part of the ini­tial con­sul­ta­tion phase to in­form the draft Sun­shine Coast De­sign Strat­egy’s de­vel­op­ment.

The draft strat­egy will be avail­able for com­ment from mid to late this year.

The Sun­shine Coast De­sign Strat­egy will es­tab­lish how de­sign char­ac­ter­is­tics are trans­lated into the look and feel of build­ings, streets and land­scapes.

Mayor Mark Jamieson said the strat­egy would be a re­source for coun­cil, the com­mu­nity, de­sign­ers and the de­vel­op­ment in­dus­try to in­form plan­ning, guide de­ci­sion mak­ing and in­spire de­sign which re­flects el­e­ments of our Sun­shine Coast.

“Ul­ti­mately, the De­sign Strat­egy will cap­ture the Sun­shine Coast’s spe­cial qual­i­ties and pro­vide a plat­form for how they are re­flected through­out our com­mu­ni­ties now and into the fu­ture,” Mayor Jamieson said.

To have your say, visit coun­cil’s web­site at www.sun­shinecoast.qld. gov.au and com­plete the on­line sur­vey by Fe­bru­ary 15. Com­plet­ing the sur­vey will give com­mu­nity mem­bers the chance to win one of 10 dou­ble movie tick­ets.

En­ter­ing the prize draw is op­tional.
