City of Gold Coast is seeking your input into a review which will determine what sorts of activities might be allowed on our beaches and how they’ll be managed.
Acting Gold Coast Mayor, Donna Gates said the City wants to hear from anyone with an opinion about our ocean beaches. “We want to find out if residents want to see more concerts, sporting competitions or to allow coffee vendors or hire companies on our ocean beaches for example” she said.
“We want to get the balance right for communities up and down the coast, and the only way we can do that is if locals tell us what business activities they want to see on our ocean beaches.”
The review is an action under the Ocean Beaches Strategy 2013-2023, developed to help the City manage valuable assets and the environmental, social and economic benefits they bring. After considering the community’s views, the City will develop a management plan for commercial activities on ocean beaches, to be presented to the Council in June 2014.
Consultation activities will run until Monday 14 April, 2014. This is a unique opportunity to get down to your local beach and learn more and have some input. Residents can share their views and find out more by visiting gchaveyoursay.com.au/cab or by visiting one of the following consultation marquees.
