Shade sail, community centre and pathways at Peregian
  • Thursday 08 October 2020

 Shade sail

I’m pleased to advise that Peregian Breeze playground will receive a shade sail before the end of the financial year as I’ve been able to successfully secure funding for this upgrade. The playground equipment is dark and gets too hot to touch during the summer months making the playground unusable. It will be great for families to be able to use the playground all year long.

Proposed community centre

I’ve also had a number of discussions with council staff about how to progress the initial steps required to design and construct a community centre at Peregian Springs. I’m looking forward to discussing this with Peregian Family and Friends and residents in the near future.

Pathway proposal

Coolum High School and parents highlighted the safety issue for students along Havana Road West, Peregian Springs. Feedback is required for the construction of a missing section of the pathway between Brushbox Way and the Sunshine Motorway to give pedestrians and cyclists a safe alternative to sharing the road with vehicles on what is a narrow and winding road. In an attempt to provide a safe off road pedestrian environment and to minimise vegetation impacts, this two metre wide pathway extension is currently being considered for the Southern side of Havana Street West, within the road reserve. A number of existing verge gardens and driveways will be affected and we would like to hear from the residents on this road as well as the students and community members who use the overpass to get to the coast. Please send your feedback to and quote the reference number H9519. Thank-you to those who have already taken the time to have their say.
