VIBRANT FUTURE FOR SPRING CREEK
The Scenic Rim’s shared vision for a vibrant community has been strengthened through the adoption of a long-term master plan for an active recreational precinct in Beaudesert.
The Scenic Rim Regional Council received funding from the Queensland Government to develop the Spring Creek Precinct Master Plan and Implementation Plan 2019, which it adopted following extensive community consultation.
Corporate and Community Services Committee Chair, Cr Michael Enright said the master plan was about ensuring a well-designed space to meet the needs of the Scenic Rim community for the next 10 to 20 years.
“The Spring Creek precinct, which includes Jubilee Park, Lions Park and a small section of land to the south, is an important place for people from all backgrounds, ages and abilities in our community to connect and find a sense of belonging,” he said.
“It’s a place where people go to exercise, have family gatherings and come together. It is the venue for established community events like Mununjali NAIDOC Day, growing food events like the Beaudesert Gourmet Street Food Festival during Eat Local Week and thriving community events like the highly popular Ninja Warrior Challenge we held in Jubilee Park recently. All of these events and activities contribute strongly to our social fabric and make the Scenic Rim a better place to live.”
Mayor Greg Christensen said the plan provided strong and clear direction to guide the future development of the site.
“Through this visionary plan, we’re ensuring the community can get the maximum benefit out of this site in the long-term, and that improvements made to Spring Creek are part of a strong long-term plan, and not simply works carried out on an ad-hoc basis.
“I thank the Scenic Rim community for being with us on this journey for the future of our region, and for making such valuable contributions during the extensive consultation period.”
Cr Christensen said priorities outlined in the master plan would be considered against others in the 10 year Capital Works Plan.
