Harmony at Palmview officially opens

Harmony at Palmview officially opens

This morning the Avid Property Group officially opened Peter Crosby way which is the brand new connection road into Harmony at Palmview.

It has been some 15 years since Palmview was originally envisaged and today marks one step closer to delivery of this brand new master planned community at the very Heart of the Sunshine Coast.

The Sippy Downs and district community association and the volunteers that have driven it along for the past 13 years played an integral part in ensuring that this development had the best possible balance with the least possible negative impact upon the Sippy Downs community.

Councillor Christian Dickson from Division 6, Sunshine Coast Council said of this brand new opening ” This is a fantastic new residential community right in the heart of the Sunshine Coast providing over 20 hectares open space for recreational purposes forming part of the total 100 hectares of open space for the community. This will serve as further community access areas for the existing Sippy Downs community and will provide many new road access points both North to the Sunshine Motorway and South to the Caloundra interchange at Caloundra Road and direct access to the Bruce Highway so in terms of Road access this is good for the community.”

The community association would like to thank have a property group for inviting us to attend and we look forward to forging strong relationships between the entire Palmview community and the Sippy Downs community as a whole.

This is an absolutely fantastic opportunity for local residents to actively take part in providing Sunshine Coast Council and in turn Cr Christian Dickson – Division 6 the information they need to deliver future improvements to parks in Sippy Downs, Queensland that are truly needed and wanted.

It is essential that as local residents we all take part in this survey to ensure that the upgrades to be included in this Master Plan are truly representative of community needs and wants.

We are very excited to not only see these upgrades on their way but thrilled to see the consultation for this master plan being delivered in a way that is truly collaborative, inclusive and available to each and every local resident including mail outs to residents letterboxes for those who do not use social media or local news and information websites.

Been wanting an upgrade to your local park? The more responses you harvest for your local park the greater the likely hood of it’s inclusion in the final plans so share this post as widely as possible.

Planned burn of USC’s Compensatory Habitat

Planned burn of USC’s Compensatory Habitat

As a component of the fire management program for the University of the Sunshine Coast, a small area within the Compensatory Habitat translocation site has been identified as requiring a prescribed burn.

USC Compensatory Habitat
The section for the prescribed burn of USC’s Compensatory Habitat this Saturday is Area 1

This area is in the far corner of the University and adjacent to the University lakes, Claymore road and the Chancellor Park estate. The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of heathland and forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas within the translocated habitat area. This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural heath and forest regeneration.

Prior to burning a permit to light the fire will be issued by the local fire warden.

Suitable weather conditions such as moisture, humidity and wind speed and direction will dictate an appropriate day and time for the burn to take place. Depending on weather & a few other variables it will take place on the first suitable day of the following alternatives:-

Saturday, 23rd July
Wednesday, 10th August

Please note it is not intended to initiate burning for the entire reserve, with the prescribed burn encompassing 1 hectare of the reserve. The burn is planned to commence at approximately 10am on the first of those available days nominated above and is expected to be completed by 11am.

The burn will be undertaken by Officers from Rural Fire Service Queensland. During the burn access will be restricted.
