Characteristics to help shape new design strategy
A REGION-WIDE set of design guidelines which will help promote and maintain the Sunshine Coast’s distinct characteristics is being developed by Sunshine Coast Council.
Council is inviting the community 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 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 the Coast.
“Council has produced some fantastic, award-winning projects in recent years like the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve Rainforest Discovery Centre (pictured), Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden Arts and Ecology Centre, the Palmwoods streetscape upgrade and Beerwah Town Centre,” Cr Jamieson said.
“It’s this sort of high-quality design we want to see more of.”
