Council OM will determine the fate of Proposed Community Facilities Precinct
Dear Members and Residents,
Tomorrow (Thursday 20 June 2019) at the Sunshine Coast Council Ordinary Meeting (OM), Sunshine Coast Councillors will vote on the final determination of the Palmview Urban Investigation Areas with the northern portion (UIA B North) on Peter Crosby Way, Sippy Downs including the proposed and much anticipated Sippy Downs Community Facilities Precinct.
At this time we would like to thank the 351 community members who completed “Letters of Support” which have formed an integral part of body of information submitted to council for consideration and a very sincere thanks to Cr Christian Dickson for his enthusiasm and support for the proposed facilities precinct.
Below for your information and in the interests of transparency is copy of the SDDCA Management Committee’s Letter to all Sunshine Coast Councillors:

SDDCA Management Committee
SDDCA Inc to Councillors 16.6.19
Referenced Letter from State Government
Through town planning consultant Innovative Planning Solutions, the Sippy Downs & District Community Association Inc (SDDCA) has been engaging with the landowner re a parcel of land bordering Chancellor Park Estate, located on Peter Crosby Way, Sippy Downs. The late Peter Crosby farmed the land for almost 50 years and had a vision to see community facilities delivered on this land for the benefit of Sippy Downs residents. The SDDCA has been engaging with Ben Crosby, who continues to have a contractual interest, and new landowners Living Choice Australia.
To paint a clear picture of the development site – it is mainly cleared farmland. All of the mature trees bordering Red Cedar Street and Sippy Creek would be retained. Of the 50ha site, only 13ha is proposed for development.

This has been achieved through everyone’s hard work volunteering and fundraising through the season. Our club has one of the most affordable fees – even within our Churches association.
Not only that but next year the kids will be running around the paddock in brand new jerseys – thanks to a generous sponsorship agreement with Banjo’s Bakery, Sippy Downs.
Can’t wait to see you all on the fields in the new year.
Good morning all,
Please see the attached incoming and outgoing correspondence relating to pickup and drop-off facilities and improvements at Chancellor State College.
Safe school travel (SafeST) program
The safety of students travelling to and from school is one of the most important issues for school communities. One way this is achieved is by providing the safest possible journey to and from Queensland schools. The Department of Transport and Main Roads supports safe school travel with the SafeST program and resources.
Addressing school safety issues
Establishing a SafeST Committee is the first step in identifying and addressing school safety concerns. The SafeST Committee will develop a school road safety action plan for implementing strategies and solutions.
Ideally an action plan would outline:
- what the school is planning to do to improve road safety
- how it expects road safety will improve
- how the school will monitor and evaluate the success of the plan
- when it will be done
- who is responsible for making it happen.
School road safety is a matter that requires whole of community awareness and commitment. Improving the safety of school travel for all children relies on the involvement and engagement of schools (including parents associations), local government and state authorities such as Education Queensland, Queensland Police Service, TMR and TransLink and/or bus operators as required.
Re: TEMPORARY CHANGES TO TRAFFIC CONDITIONS SATURDAY 24 NOVEMBER, 6AM – 5PM.
Temporary closure of a section of Sippy Downs Drive (between University Way and Siena Catholic College) and traffic detour via Service Road.
Dear Sippy Downs Residents and interested stakeholders.
Thank you for your ongoing patience regarding construction of the Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade Project. We will soon be issuing another construction update which will include news of the construction break over the Christmas and New Year period and details regarding next year’s 2019 construction program.
In the interim and as part of the project, Council must dig trenches across Sippy Downs Drive to install stormwater pipes.
To safely undertake this work a section of Sippy Downs Drive, between University Way and Siena Catholic College, must be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic for a period of one day, Saturday 24 November from 6 am – 5 pm (weather permitting).
On this day, light vehicle traffic will be redirected along the Sippy Downs Drive Service Road as one-way traffic. Buses and heavy vehicles will be detoured via an alternative route. University Way will remain open.
Please refer to the map below for more details.
The speed limit along the Service Road will be posted as 40 km per hour and signage and traffic control will help to redirect motorists.
The entry to Siena Catholic College will also be temporarily closed during this time. The project team thanks the School Principals and Parish Council for their assistance.
We thank you in advance for your understanding of these mandatory works and request that all motorists exercise additional caution when driving along the Service Road this Saturday.
Should you have any questions about this work, please feel free to contact us via the details below.
