Coolum Community Centre / Coolum School Of Arts
Council is set to remove the trees from wildlife
corridor on the block next to the kindy on Jones
Parade and Banksia Avenue to relocate the shell of
Coolum's historic School Of Arts. This is not the
outcome the community expected from consultations and
presentations back in 2009. Please click and support
this petition asking Council to keep the
building in Jack Morgan Park.

Airport Expansion Proposal
On 9 February, the CEO SCC advised:
"As a valued
stakeholder, Council is now pleased to inform
you that today we have concluded negotiations
with Palisade Investment Partners following a
comprehensive transaction process.
"Palisade has substantial experience in the airport sector through its investment in Airport Development Group which owns Darwin, Alice Springs and Tennant Creek airports. Palisade has also recently invested in Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2.
"The transition of the business to the control of Palisade will take place over the next several months and Council will work with Palisade to ensure that airport operations are unaffected and a smooth transition of the business occurs.
"The transaction that has been negotiated with Palisade will enable Council to proceed with the Airport expansion project, which will have a transformational effect on business, employment and investment growth in our region."
