Petition update

A petition regarding the Kenilworth Community Transport Service trial containing 134 signatures was recently tabled at Council’s May Ordinary Meeting.

Thank you to everyone who gave feedback on this popular trial service that provides transport to Kenilworth residents living within a 6.5km radius of the Kenilworth Post Office The service is currently suspended due to COVID-19 to protect the health and wellbeing of everyone in our community.

Overall, the service which is pre-booked by residents through the Kenilworth Visitor Information Centre, has been well received by the community with it providing its first trip in June last year.

It’s run by volunteers, enabling residents of Kenilworth access to Nambour, Maleny, Mapleton and Eumundi. Given we recently celebrated National Volunteer Week, I must give a huge shout-out to these volunteers. They are the heart and soul of our community.

I understand the petition would like to see the 6.5km radius expanded and also include services to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

I will keep you updated on any further progress and thank you once again for your feedback.

Community Survey

Council’s First Nations Partnership team has recently launched a community survey - www.surveymonkey.com/r/FirstNations. The First Nations Partnerships team facilitates First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) collaborations and partnerships on the Sunshine Coast. They hope to be a leader in First Nations engagement, while nurturing a shared future that embraces culture, heritage and diversity.

If you have a spare moment please consider participating in the short survey. All information collected will help shape future promotional material as well as key policy documents.

We recently celebrated National Reconciliation Week by paying tribute to the Traditional Owners of the Sunshine Coast local government area; the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples.

Please email or call me if you have any questions or concerns. david.law@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au  ph 07 5441 8373; m 0437 825 569
