Council grants support free activities in Queensland Youth Week


Redland City Council is once again offering grants to help local not-for-profit youth organisations run free events during Queensland Youth Week (1-11 April 2022).

Mayor Karen Williams said this was the second year Council had offered the Redlands Coast Youth Week Grants.

“These grants were established to recognise the great work done by not-for-profit youth focused organisations across the city,” she said.

“These organisations not only support our local youth, but provide them with safe spaces to meet, share experiences and to have fun.

“Through these grants, funding of up to $1500 is available to facilitate a free event or activity during Queensland Youth Week.

“Seven grants were awarded last year, with activities ranging from an obstacle course at The Cage Youth Foundation in Redland Bay, to parkour with Running Wild at Macleay and Russell Islands and screen printing t-shirts at the Redland Community Centre in Capalaba.

“Council is pleased to offer the grants once again this year to support events which will give young people the opportunity to come together and make new connections.”

Redlands Coast Youth Week Grant applications close on Tuesday, 15 March 2022.

Redlands Coast residents urged to prepare for more heavy rain


Redlands Coast residents, who are still feeling the impacts of the weekend’s extreme weather, are being urged to heed all current storm warnings and prepare for more heavy rainfall.

Mayor Karen Williams warned there could be further impacts across Redlands Coast, with heavy rainfall and severe thunderstorms forecast for today and into the weekend.

“Council has opened all of its sandbagging stations again today and we have also organised for filled sandbags to be sent to Coochiemudlo, Karragarra and Lamb islands,” she said.

When sandbagging, residents should lay down a tarp against the property and place the sandbags on top. For further sandbagging tips, visit the SES website.

Cr Williams urged people not to travel around looking at the damage across the city or in neighbouring areas as this could hinder emergency crews.

“Council crews have been out assessing the damage across the city and I urge everyone to be patient as we work through all the issues caused by the intense rainfall, which inundated not only our beautiful city but all of south-east Queensland,” she said.

“This includes repairs to damaged roads, including potholes, removing fallen trees and branches, and mowing grass which will be very long in parks and public spaces following the heavy rain.

“Council crews are attending to all of these issues as quickly as possible.

“We know about many issues already, but if you come across damaged public infrastructure or other potential hazards, contact Council on 3829 8999.

“This will ensure we capture all the issues which need addressing across our city.

“After a severe drenching the ground is very wet and trees may be at risk of falling with wind gusts, so please be aware of that.”

Cr Williams thanked local SES volunteers for working tirelessly throughout the extreme weather event and said some teams were preparing to deploy throughout the Brisbane and Moreton Bay areas from today.

“If you see one of our orange angels, please thank them,” she said.

“If residents wish to help with the clean-up, they should start close to home by checking on neighbours, family and friends.”

If people would like to volunteer in other flood affected areas please register with the Emergency Volunteering (EV) Crew through Volunteering Queensland, register.emergencyvolunteering.com.au, and you’ll be advised as opportunities become available.

Cr Williams also urged people to take care out on the bay, with the potential for debris to come out of the Logan and Brisbane Rivers.

Council workshops to help upskill community organisations


Redland City Council is inviting volunteer committee and board members of Redlands Coast community groups, and any locals interested in volunteering in a leadership role, to attend a free training program in March 2022.

The training program will be delivered through a series of workshops across the city, covering topics that include governing a community organisation, volunteer management and keeping your organisation viable.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said Council was pleased to be providing professional training and support to volunteers and potential volunteers to enhance their knowledge and skillset.

“Redlands Coast committee and board volunteers play an important role in leading community organisations that enrich lives, connect people, build cultural value and protect the environment,” Cr Williams said.

“These groups serve our community day in and day out and Council is proud to be delivering these workshops to strengthen community groups, boost morale, and provide members in a committee role with training opportunities to grow their skillset.

“A total of 12 workshops will be held across the mainland and North Stradbroke (Minjerribah), Russell and Macleay islands next month at no cost to participants, with the first workshop planned to be held on Tuesday 8 March 2022 at the Victoria Point Bowls and Recreation Club.

“The workshop series consists of practical information pertinent to overseeing the management of a community organisation, and I encourage volunteers in a committee role or anyone interested in applying for one to reserve your place.”

The workshops will be facilitated by an organisational development consultant with experience in working with community services and not-for-profit organisations.

Bookings are essential and can be made by visiting the program’s Eventbrite webpage or by contacting Council on 3829 8999 from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Council aims to deliver the workshops as COVID-safe, face-to-face events. However, if required, workshops will be transitioned online and held as webinars.

Council will notify all registered attendees of any changes to the workshops.

For more information about the workshop topics, please visit Council’s website.

Council starts clean up after extreme weather


Redland City Council crews have commenced a clean-up across the city following the recent extreme weather and is urging the community to report all hazards.

Residents are encouraged to report flooding, sewage inundation, fallen trees and damaged roads to Council so there is a record and a list of works which will be prioritised.

Contact Council on 3829 8999 or email rcc@redland.qld.gov.au

Council crews have been busy investigating reports of fallen trees and branches, and damage to roads.

Drivers are urged to take care on the roads as there may be debris and damage which could take some time to repair.

Please do not travel around looking at the damage around the city or in our neighbouring areas. Remember, if it’s flooded, forget it.

Council mowing crews will be out as soon as possible, and residents are encouraged to be patient as we deal with long grass expected across the city as a result of the rain.

Walking trail closed following land slip

Council has closed off a walking trail at the base of the Esplanade at Wellington Point following a land slip.

Council has inspected the area and will seek expert advice on securing the area.

In the meantime, residents and visitors are advised to stay clear of the area.

Sewerage issues

Due to the current significant weather event, stormwater has infiltrated sewerage systems throughout the SEQ region, causing some stormwater manholes to lift (as they are designed to do).

The majority of this overflow is rainwater so any wastewater is heavily diluted.

But it is very important to ensure people (particularly children) and animals don’t enter or play in any overflowing water in public or on private property.

Residents should contact Council on 3829 8999 or via email rcc@redland.qld.gov.au to report any wastewater discharge on private property so an officer can inspect and provide advice.

Usually, discharge on private properties is released through the property’s overflow relief gully (ORG), located on the outside of the house, so make sure the ORG (a raised circular grate covering a drain) remains clear.

If your toilet is gurgling it usual means your ORG is doing its job and preventing discharge occurring inside your house.

Ensure your property’s overflow relief gully (ORG) remains clear.

Impacts on kerbside bin collections

Redland City Council’s rubbish collection contractor JJ’s Waste and Recycling suspended the emptying of yellow-lidded recycling bins today as there was no access to the Visy recycling facility due to the flood situation.

However, Council has received advice from Visy Recycling that operations at their recovery facility will resume on Tuesday, 1 March.

This means kerbside recycling collections will occur as scheduled tomorrow.

Any recycling bins that could not be collected today (in Capalaba, Alexandra Hills and Birkdale) will be collected by Wednesday.

All other waste collections will proceed as normal but localised flooding may also impact collection of general and green waste from some properties.

Bins missed due to flooding and road closures with be collected when possible.

Cleaning up tips

Take care to dry and clean your house and belongings, throwing away anything that cannot be cleaned.

When floodwater subsides it can leave mould, germs and in some cases sewerage behind. Consider engaging a professional to disinfect your property and keep children and pets away until the clean-up is completed.

All of Council’s Recycling and Waste Centres on the mainland and islands are open as usual today.

Stay prepared

The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted further wet weather this week so make sure you are prepared.

Sandbag stations are open today (enclosed shoes must be worn):

  • Council Depot Cleveland: 199-205 South Street – open until 6pm today

Applications open for new Village Events and Activation Grants


Applications are now open for Redland City Council’s new Village Events and Activation Grant program.

Mayor Karen Williams said the grants totalling $120,000 would support community organisations and village traders in promoting their local village centres and making them more vibrant.

“These new grants are all about celebrating our villages and investing in local business,” she said.

“They will support not-for-profit community organisations and village traders to work together to deliver activities and experiences that bring people together, such as live entertainment and movie events, youth activities, specialty food and boutique markets, decorative lighting and temporary street furniture.

“In the process, the program will build community connection and resilience and will stimulate economic activity in our centres.”

Under the program, one grant of up to $12,000 will be available for initiatives in each of 10 centres across the city – Cleveland, Capalaba, Victoria Point, Alexandra Hills, Birkdale, Redland Bay, Wellington Point, Mount Cotton, Dunwich or Point Lookout on North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) and the Southern Moreton Bay Islands (Russell, Macleay or Lamb Island).

Cr Williams said the grants would help to provide more fun and engaging events and activities, and beautiful spaces for locals and visitors, while supporting the strategic objectives of Council’s corporate plan.

“Council wants to support activities and experiences that bring social, cultural and economic benefits to our community by encouraging visitors and residents to get out and experience what Redlands Coast has to offer.

“These new grants will go a long way to making this happen.”

Grant applications close on 27 March 2022 and successful applicants will have until 31 December 2022 to deliver events.

Information, including grant guidelines and how to apply online, is available on Council’s Community Grants webpage.
