Have your say on Burleigh foreshore concept plans



BURLEIGH Heads residents will now have a chance to speak their mind about their foreshore.

The Gold Coast city council is seeking community comment on concept sketches for landscaping along part of the public foreshore at Burleigh Heads.

Area Councillor, Greg Betts said the sketches showed a number of proposals for landscaping between Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club and the Mermaids Restaurant building.

"The old Paragon restaurant building will be demonished next year and the car park is being moved back to create a larger area of public open space along the foreshore," Cr Betts said.

"The sketches show ideas for a major 'arrival plaza' that would connect the Burleigh central business district with the Oceanway and the beach.

"The idea is that it would become a major celebration plaza for the city with an international profile," he said.

Cr Betts said the Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club was planning to redevelop its building. The concept plans would ensure the two projects complemented each other.

"The sketches show a new pathway running from the Goodwin Terrace pedestrian crossing at the highway, through the arrival plaza with an iconic sculpture to the Oceanway pavement next to the Surf Life Saving Club building."

Cr Betts said the sketches were early drafts of concepts not final plans.

"It's important to emphasise these sketches are early drafts of concepts; they are not final plans. They are being released to generate community comment," Cr Betts said.

The sketches are available on council's website on www.goldcoastcity.com.au

All comments should be directed to Peter Challenger on 55816433 or pchallenger@goldcoast.qld.gov.au
