Beerburrum residents are invited to come along to a public information session on Thursday, May 24 to discuss Sunshine Coast Council’s plans to develop basic trailhead facilities in Beerburrum, in partnership with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.

Division 1 Councillor Rick Baberowski said council was developing a draft concept landscape plan to guide detailed planning for Parrot Park Bushland Reserve’s current parking area to allow it to function as a new southern trailhead for the Glass House Mountains National Park.

The concept plan aims to:

  • inform opportunities for improvements;
  • enhance the site’s attractiveness to visitors to the region;
  • determine the recreation opportunities and constraints of the site;
  • improve access to the trail network;
  • reflect the community’s vision, priorities and hopes for the future of the Beerburrum township.

“These works are focused on connecting the township to the national parks in a more effective way, and to connect the trails to the rail line to provide a ‘rail to trail’ functionality for the Glass House Mountains region,” Cr Baberowski said.

Community members will have the opportunity to view the draft concept plan and receive information about the upcoming works at the information session on Thursday, May 24 at Beerburrum Community Hall from 5pm.

Local residents can also share their views by visiting council’s website and making a submission.

The community feedback will then inform a final concept landscape plan which will be released to the community in July 2018.

Submissions close on Sunday, June 24.
