Major Grants now open
Calling all not-for-profit local community groups. Do you have a great project idea to make your neighbourhood more active, vibrant, inclusive, resilient or creative? Make it a reality with support from Sunshine Coast Council’s Community Grants program. More than $600,000 is up for grabs in the current Major Grants round, which is open now and closes on 15 March 2021. Eligible not-for-profit organisations can receive up to $15,000 for projects, events and activities that meet community need and provide community benefit. See council’s website for more information and start preparing your application early. Best of luck.
Join the movement
Council’s popular health and fitness program, Healthy Sunshine Coast, is back for 2021 for the whole community to enjoy with a variety of free and low cost activities on offer.
Many favourite classes will return including indoor and outdoor exercise sessions, group fitness, yoga and Zumba with more free activities and new classes in different locations including Mapleton, Nambour and Yandina. This is a dynamic program and will have new activities added regularly. Be sure to register for the program as bookings are essential for each class through the provider. Visit council’s website for more information and register with the Kenilworth Community Transport Service to get you there, subject to their terms and conditions.
New planning scheme process
In partnership with the community, we will spend the next few years developing a new planning scheme, which will shape land use and development across our region.
Council’s next steps in a long process will require input from across the organisation, external stakeholders and everyday locals.
