Birkdale Community Precinct consultation closes soon


Time is running out in the current opportunity for the community to have its say and help shape the future of the largest, most encompassing and diverse community project ever delivered by Redland City Council.

The five-week consultation campaign on the Draft Birkdale Community Precinct (BCP) Master Plan closes at midnight on Monday, 6 June 2022.

Mayor Karen Williams encouraged the Redlands Coast community to view the Plan and have their say via the online survey at yoursay.redland.qld.gov.au

“This Plan is a vision of what will become one of the largest community spaces in south-east Queensland as it unfolds over the next two decades,” Cr Williams said.

“Birkdale Community Precinct will include Redlands Coast’s first public swimming lagoon as well as the Redlands Whitewater Centre, which will be a host venue during the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“The Draft BCP Master Plan shares the rich culture and history of the much-loved former farming land on Old Cleveland Road East at Birkdale, and details how this heritage will be protected and celebrated.

“It also explains the unique natural habitat which will be protected and enhanced. And it shows how your thoughts and input are being used to shape it into the world-class community asset that this generation and those to come will cherish.

“This is truly an intergenerational project, set on 62 hectares of land that Council fought to bring back into public ownership to save it from being lost to housing development.

“As such, the community is thoroughly invested in this project. It has been heartening to see the excitement they have for it; the suggestions and ideas they continue to show and share; and the desire for wanting to take part in, and enjoy, all that it will offer down the track.

“Check out the Plan and all that BCP will be and let us know what you love most about this emerging showpiece of our wonderful Redlands Coast.”
