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.
