Community meetings combine for Buderim
  • Friday 22 June 2012

Buderim residents who wish to raise an issue with their local Sunshine Coast Councillor can now have the best of both worlds.

Division 6 Councillor Christian Dickson and Division 7 Councillor Ted Hungerford are set to combine their monthly community meetings. Cr Dickson said the change would enable more thorough and constructive communication with local residents.

"Previously Cr Hungerford and I had staged our monthly meetings separately which sometimes meant issues couldn’t be resolved then and there if a resident came to me with an issue relating to Division 7 or they came to Cr Hungerford with something relating to Division 6," he said.

"From now on both Cr Hungerford and I will be available in the same place on the same day of each month so locals can come and talk to either or both of us about anything and everything relating to Buderim."

Cr Hungerford said the community meetings would take place on the fourth Friday of each month at the Old Post Office on the corner of Burnett Street and Lindsay Road from 10am to 12pm.

"Cr Dickson and I care about the whole of Buderim and all issues relating to our terrific community regardless of whether they’re in Division 6 or Division 7," he said.

"Combining our monthly meetings will enable more constructive discussion and lead to better outcomes."

Buderim community meetings with Cr Dickson and Cr Hungerford will take place on the following dates (for 2012):

  • Friday 22 June from 10am to 12pm
  • Friday 27 July from 10am to 12pm
  • Friday 24 August from 10am to 12pm
