Birkdale Community Precinct Info Days cancelled due to wet weather


The Birkdale Community Precinct Info Days planned for this Friday and Saturday, 27 and 28 May, have been cancelled due to wet weather.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said while it was unfortunate the days could no longer go ahead, you could still have your say on the precinct’s Draft Master Plan via an online survey, as well as touring the precinct virtually.

“All the information about the recently adopted Draft Birkdale Community Precinct (BCP) Master Plan is available on the project’s website at yoursay.redland.qld.gov.au,” Cr Williams said.

“This Plan is a vision of what will become one of the largest community spaces in south-east Queensland and one which will unfold over the next two decades.

“The 62-hectare 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.

“There will also be seven Hubs with the following themes: Cultural, Innovation, Willards Farm (Food), Communications, Entertainment, Recreation and Adventure Sports, and Conservation.

“It is the largest, most exciting and most diverse community precinct ever to be delivered by Council for Redlands Coast.

“On the project’s website you can watch a fly-through video of what it will become as well as go on a virtual tour of the site as it is now.

“You can also download the draft master plan and look at detailed maps of what the Hubs will include.”

Cr Williams said the Draft BCP Master Plan community consultation process started on April 30 and would continue until June 6.

“I encourage you to jump online and complete the survey,” she said.
