Yesterday the SDDCA officially announced that the boundary fence line facing university way between Oxford Close and Scholars Drive, Sippy Downs will be repaired cleaned and repainted over the coming weeks as part of a joint project between the themselves, the Buderim Men’s Shed, Mr Steve Dickson MP for Buderim an Councillor Christian Dickson, councilor for Division 6 Sunshine Coast Council.
Residents who rear fence bounds University Way between Oxford Close and Scholars Drive Sippy Downs are having their fencce repaired, cleaned and repainted under this collaborative community project intern improving the visual aesthetics to this major access point in and out of the Sippy Downs area.
The SDDCA has for a number of years explored ways to engage residents to assist in delivering much needed repairs and maintenance to fencing along University Way Sippy Downs by conducting email and mailout offers to residents with limited success and engagement.
Recently SDDCA representatives have visited all of the residential properties along the section of fencing listed above and sought approval from them to have this project delivered free of charge with all but one resident taking part. Under the Dividing Fences and Trees Act of 2011 while residents who share a boundary fence with other residents are required to share the cost of fence replacement, residential properties whose fencing faces public land are solely responsible for the replacement and repair costs.
This creates an issue should individual residents begin to replace sections of fence that they own with different styles and colours of fencing as it can potentially lower the visual amenity of the main thoroughfare in the area.
The SDDCA, on behalf of the entire community, sincerely thanks the Buderim Men’s Shed, Steve Dickson MP and Cr Christian Dickson for their contributions assistance and support!
