The Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex Master Plan considers:
- arrangements and uses of the site
- the needs across various sports and recreation uses
- the needs of the community and surrounding population
- trends, issues and priorities
- traffic movement/management needs
- relevant council plans and strategies
- relevant planning constraints and opportunities.
The Maroochydore Multi-Sports Complex site is located on approximately 24 hectares of council-owned land. About 95% is cleared for recreational use.
The site is a regional sporting complex. This complex provides open space for formal and informal recreation to promote health and wellbeing.
