Building a stronger Sunshine Coast community together

The Sunshine Coast Community Strategy aims to help us: live healthier and more active lifestyles, better connect with our communities, create more vibrant and connected places and spaces, and celebrate our creativity and First Nations culture and heritage.

The strategy has undergone a refresh after vital feedback from more than 1800 community members.

Collaborative solutions to transport and housing and homelessness support, more emphasis on community facilities and local activities to bring our communities together, and a renewed focus on inclusion and diversity in all its forms are some of the priorities our community has highlighted.

Other priorities suggested by residents include ensuring balance in the built and natural environment, strengthening community connections as we grow and developing further recognition of First Nations people.

Sunshine Coast residents are invited to provide their feedback on the draft refreshed Community Strategy and Action Plan 2024-29.

Sunshine Coast Mayor Rosanna Natoli encouraged all of our community to have their say on this important strategy for our region.

“The draft refreshed Community Strategy reflects our changing Sunshine Coast community priorities,” Mayor Natoli said.

“Here on the Sunshine Coast, we’re connecting and engaging with our communities to build a better future for everyone.

“Residents can provide their feedback by attending one of our community sessions, completing the online survey or, for more detailed feedback, using the feedback template before June 10,” Mayor Natoli said.

“Residents can also get creative and enter the photo competition by sharing a photo that represents our strong Sunshine Coast community.”

Community members who enter the photo competition can win gift vouchers of up to $500, with open and junior categories available.
