Have your say on liveability in our region

IF YOU love the Sunshine Coast and want to help protect its environment and improve liveability, here’s your chance.
Sunshine Coast Council is looking to refresh its Banksia Award-winning Environment and Liveability Strategy, which provides long-term direction for guiding growth and shaping the future of the region.
Now in the sixth year of the strategy’s implementation, Council is seeking the community’s input to ensure it remains future-focused and provides a contemporary approach to deliver a healthy environment and liveable Sunshine Coast as we move toward 2041.
Environment portfolio Councillor Peter Cox said our region’s environment and lifestyle were central to maintaining the Sunshine Coast’s character and status as a great place to live.
“From expanding our green spaces, achieving international recognition as a UNESCO Biosphere, to creating great places and spaces, the ELS has already guided many great outcomes for our environment and liveability,” Cr Cox said.
To contribute, residents are encouraged to spend 10 minutes completing an online survey at haveyoursay.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ELSrefresh.
The survey asks residents which environment and liveability issues they believe most need to be addressed, and the priority action required.
Residents are asked to take the survey before submissions close on May 26.
