Birdies on the cards under new lease with Maleny Golf Club
  • Thursday 23 February 2017

Nature-lovers on the Sunshine Coast will have greater access to some of the hinterland’s pristine wetlands and the local golf course will continue expansion plans after council today voted to endorse the final lease areas for Maleny Golf Inc, and the Southern Wetlands Landscape Plan.

The plan will help guide council in wetlands rehabilitation and establish greater opportunities for partnerships with volunteers.

It will also ensure public access and viewing points, creating a haven for animal lovers and birdwatchers.

The adoption of the plan will also enable the Maleny Golf Club to continue with their planned expansion and development of an 18-hole golf course with support from the state government.

Councillor for Division Five, Cr Jenny McKay, said the agreement reached with council and the golf club was a win-win for both parties, and would deliver great benefit to the wider community.

“A lot of work has gone into this process, and it’s pleasing to see such a great outcome for the local community,” Cr McKay said.
