Sippy Downs Parks Master Plan – Project News and Survey

Sippy Downs residents here is you chance to truly have your say about future parks upgrades for the entire area.

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.
