Returning SDDCA President Matthew Druce said, “The SDDCA would like to thank all of the community members and VIP Guests who attended the meeting along with the evening’s speakers.

While we value all of the speakers and topics covered, of special interest to us as a community representative and advocacy body is the announcement of the proposed community facilities precinct presented by James Brownsworth on behalf of the Crosby family. This development has the potential to deliver long overdue and much needed community facilities. We will be investigating, exploring and seeking feedback from the community, together with council’s position on this proposal over the coming weeks and months.”

Mr Druce went on to say, “Sippy Downs was poorly planned and delivered but after 10 plus years we may just be on the precipice of seeing some of the biggest oversights delivered. Thanks to the commencement of the expanding Sippy Downs Town Centre, Cr Christian Dickson is now able to explore funding opportunities for the delivery of a library and meeting room facilities. Delivery of the proposed community facilities in these two precincts would see Sippy Downs residents enjoying facilities afforded to other master planned communities.

“We are fortunate to have a strong working relationship with Councillor Christian Dickson and the SDDCA is now calling on residents to learn more about the development proposal on the Crosby land (which includes land dedicated to sporting fields, community buildings and a community garden) and support the Association in our approach to council planning staff.”

More information including detailed maps will be able to be viewed on our website when we release detailed information tomorrow.

Official Release Date: 14 September 2017

Potential delivery of Community Facilities Precinct for Sippy Downs

Potential delivery of Community Facilities Precinct for Sippy Downs

An exciting inclusion in this week’s community meeting and SDDCA AGM is a presentation on the potential delivery of a community facilities Precinct for Sippy Downs.

Last Friday SDDCA Representatives had the opportunity to meet with Steve Dickson MP for Buderim, Cr Christian Dickson, Landowner Ben Crosby and James Brownsworth from Innovative Planning Solutions onsite to take a look at this proposed development for Sippy Downs.

The Crosby family are seeking to develop this land as they understand the need for community focused land and facilities that have historically never been provided for in and around the Sippy Downs area.

Currently under negotiation with Sunshine Coast Council this development has the potential to deliver much needed sports fields and community facilities for the Sippy Downs area and based upon the information provided to us thus far the SDDCA supports this project going ahead while simultaneously seeking community feedback over the coming weeks leading up to a formal submission to SCC.

A full presentation will be delivered at this Wednesday nights community meeting and AGM.
