Council has adopted the GRC Corporate Plan 2017-2022. This plan addresses key strategic themes for not only Council but also for the wider community as we move forward as one of the truly evolving regional centres of Queensland. I would also like to thank those members of the community who provided feedback through our community engagement/consultation period which was an important process to bring the finalised Corporate Plan before Council. 

One of the key themes addressed in the plan is our economy. As a community we have seen significant improvements in our tourism visitation right across the Region.

We are also experiencing never before seen housing approvals and construction for this Region. Local businesses are confident of future growth, as per the recent business confidence survey. The Gympie Times supports this confidence which is clearly evidenced by their current advertising campaign.

This reflects that the Gympie Region is not only vibrant, but also growing and changing with Council plans for family friendly places in the CBD, a state of the art transit centre and planned accessibility to the Mary River to name but a few of Councils planned projects over the remainder of this term. I certainly endorse their comments “Our Region is on the move”.

Noosa Road, Tandur – Bitumen Sealing

Summary

Council has allocated funding in the 2016/17 financial year to extend the bitumen sealing of Noosa Road, at Tandur, as shown in the plan of work overleaf.

 

Works proposed

The project will extend the bitumen seal of Noosa Road by approximately 500 metres, up to and including the Madill Road intersection. The finished road will be to a 7.0 metre wide, two lane sealed standard.

The work will include:

  • vegetation clearing and earthworks
  • stormwater drainage
  • road pavement and
  • bitumen sealing

Council endeavours to minimise disturbance of established vegetation on its projects where possible.

 

Traffic management

During construction property accesses may be affected for short durations. Council officers will contact residents, where relevant, to discuss timing for access if work is likely to impact entrances. Your patience during construction is appreciated. Traffic management measures will be in place to ensure the safety of all road users.

 

Timing

Construction is expected to commence in early 2017, subject to weather.
