Surf pool a step closer

THE development application to build a surfing wave pool and tourism facility at the Bruce Highway end of Johnston Road in Glass House Mountains last week took a step closer to becoming a reality.

A public notice has been published in this edition of GC&M News to let everyone know the community submission phase has begun before Sunshine Coast Council assesses the application and gives it the thumbs up or thumbs down.

This stage of the application process gives locals the chance to share their comments, support or objections with the council. Submissions must be made in the proper form found on the council’s development web portal at

Don’t delay as submissions must be lodged by August 25. To read about the development go to and search for MCU20/0381. See the public notice in this week’s GC&M News.
