Winter does not mean Snakes are not About!

Winter does not mean Snakes are not About!

It might be winter but that doesn’t mean there are snakes out and about around Sippy Downs.

We just came across a post from local Beck Hart on the Sippy Downs Community – Connect Facebook group showing a photo of what appears to be a red belly black snake in a property on the corner of university way and Fitzgerald Street here in Sippy Downs.

After photographing the snake and exploring potential solutions the snake had left this location and as yet has not bee caught. If you leave in the vicinity of this location please be aware that this snake is on the move.

Here in Sippy Downs living on the very edge over National Park always pays to consider that there may be wildlife on your property, potentially wildlife that can do you harm.

Please don’t ever be complacent and always check places like your pets kennels and children’s play areas vigilantly.

SDDCA Management Committee

SDDCA Inc to Councillors 16.6.19

Referenced Letter from State Government

Background :

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.

Eaton Park Upgrades Coming to Sippy Downs Park Network

Hi all,

I am very excited to announce that my office has fully funded some major park upgrade works at Eaton Park here in Sippy Downs.

These upgrades come directly from the priorities raised by the Sippy Downs community in the development of the Sippy Downs Parks Master Plan: https://www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Council/Planning-and-Projects/Council-Plans/Sippy-Downs-Parks-Master-Plan

I am thrilled to advise that works at Eaton Park, Sippy Downs are due to commence on the 24th June (weather permitting).

Works will include:

  • installation of a multi-purpose court and sports wall.
  • relocation of the existing netball post onto a new concrete slab.
  • removal of existing BBQ units (end of life asset and failing) and replacement with a brand new modern double unit.
  • Installation of rugby/soccer goal posts.
  • drainage improvement works.installation of 2x park entry signs.

I’m positive these park upgrades will be a welcomed addition to our awesome Sippy Downs community.

Works are expected to be completed early to mid-August.

Warm regards,

Christian Dickson
