Council is in the ‘hearing’ loop!

Council is leading the way with amplification systems installed at its main community facilities to make it easier for hearing impaired people to pick up the speaker’s voice and other important audio.

Facilities with an amplification system include Council Chambers, Customer Service Centres, mainland libraries, Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC), the Donald Simpson Centre and community halls at Capalaba,Thorneside, Redland Bay, Point Lookout (North Stradbroke
Island), Macleay Island and Russell Island.

Please let our staff know you’d like to use the amplification system and they will be happy to assist.


Corporate Plan – last chance to have your say!

The draft plan is open for comment until this Friday 24 April. To view copies of the draft plan, which will guide Council’s decision-making for the next five years, and to complete a comment form visit our website, libraries or customer service centres.
