Sponsor found for University Way Fence Project

Sponsor found for University Way Fence Project

SDDCA MEDIA RELEASE

Sippy Downs and District Community Association (SDDCA) President Matt Druce is pleased to announce that a sponsor has been secured for the final stage of the University Way fence project between Colombia and Albany Streets, Sippy Downs.

Mr Druce said, “This is an important community project as this particular roadway is one of the area’s most used local roads and is in desperate need of repair and paint. A joint project last year between the SDDCA, Cr Christian Dickson, former State Member Steve Dickson and the Buderim Men’s Shed saw the restoration of the fence from Oxford Close to Scholars Drive. This has made an incredible difference to the amenity of the area with stage 2 set to remedy this long-standing eyesore.

“At the SDDCA AGM in August, we made an open call for sponsorship for the restoration of the remainder of the fence along University Way from Columbia Street to Albany Street.  I am pleased to advise residents that through town planning consultants Innovative Planning Solutions, Mr Graham Hobbs and Mr Ian Tregoning, the owners and Directors of Living Choice Australia, have responded to that call and advised that LCA will provide sponsorship for this project.

Completion of stage 2 of this project will see the erection of “Project Thank You” signage at the beginning and ends of stage 1 and 2 of the project, recognising the efforts and contributions of all the organisations and businesses involved. This has been approved by Council for a period of 12 months for which we are grateful.

We are aiming to commence work in the new year and are calling for expressions of interest from local industry relevant businesses to put up their hand and volunteer to assist in the management and delivery of this final stage, in turn securing the opportunity to have their business acknowledged in the “Project Thank You” signage.

“The SDDCA has established good working relationships with many of the landowners in our fast-growing area and it is encouraging to see this genuine desire by Living Choice Australia to provide for the Sippy Downs community.  As well as the proposal of community facilities put forward by Living Choice Palmview on land bordering Chancellor Park Estate, they also have approval for a large residential development in Palmview. Our aim is to continue to work with them and other developers on matters of community interest.”

Mr Hobbs said, “Living Choice provides a wide choice of living options and leisure facilities in safe, secure communities located in sought-after locations. We value engagement with local residents and were only too pleased to provide sponsorship for this community project run by the Sippy Downs & District Community 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.

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.
