The National Parks and Leisure Australia 2022 Regional Awards recognised local councils for excellence in strategic planning work, this year celebrating a Queensland council’s commitment to a sustainable future. 

Sunshine Coast Council received the Award of Excellence at the National awards for the Council’s development of the Sunshine Coast Recreation Parks Plan 2021-2031.

The recently developed Plan is set to serve as a roadmap for parks on the Sunshine Coast. The document is a planning tool that supports the Council’s commitment to preserving spaces and parks to promote a healthy lifestyle and environment on the Sunshine Coast.

Endorsed by Council in December 2021, the Recreation Parks Plan will assist park planners and managers within Council and the development industry to design and deliver recreation parks that achieve Council’s strategic goals. It will also assist the community in understanding how, why and where Council locates park activities and infrastructure that supports recreation.

The Recreation Parks Plan is one of many ways Council is delivering on its Environment and Liveability Strategy (ELS), which provides long-term direction to guide growth and shape a sustainable future for the region.

The plan demonstrates the Council’s intention to enhance the variety of services that recreation parks provide for Sunshine Coast communities to complement the region’s character and lifestyle. The Plan was created to ensure that community values are always reflected in the design, management, operations and maintenance of parks.
