Cr Law - Out and about in Kenilworth
  • Wednesday 12 May 2021

Out and about

On Tuesday 20 April I attended the Kenilworth Arts Council AGM. We reviewed the past year, including the COVID-19 changes, and it was nice to share ideas for the coming year and events that the committee would like to work on and bring to the community. There’s some terrific events in the pipeline so stay tuned. For more information on how you can get involved visit www.kenilwortharts.org.au  

Free tree day

On Monday 24 May from 9-11am I will be holding a Councillor drop-in session and also a free tree day. Come down and grab some seedlings and shrubs and you’re also welcome to provide myself with any council feedback. Please see my Facebook page for full details closer to the day.

Night-time feral animal surveying

You may have noticed council officers performing night-time feral animal surveying recently along Walli Creek Rd/Walli Mountain Rd in Kenilworth.

Surveying is used to determine the distribution, population, size, habitat use and impacts of feral animals.

It’s vital to understand the extent and magnitude of feral animals in the region and monitor where they are so that activities can be implemented to minimise their impact on our environment and the community.

Data collected from these surveys is used to inform and assess the effectiveness of council’s feral animal control programs and to assist with targeting problem areas.

You can report sightings of feral animals in your area to council. Council officers are available to assist with education and action for landowners to minimise the impact of feral animals on their property.

For more information contact council at mail@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au or phone 5475 7272.

Have your say on stormwater management

Did you know Sunshine Coast Council owns and manages more than $1.5 billion worth of stormwater assets? Kenilworth experiences a big impact in major rain events so please help us understand Kenilworth’s storm water and complete the survey. Council wants to ensure we have an integrated stormwater network that is effective, sustainable and contributes to waterway health via the Stormwater Management Strategy. Visit Council’s website to have your say by 14 May.
