Redlands Coast Regional Sport and Recreation Precinct

The Precinct site is located at 277-293 Heinemann Road, Mount Cotton and is approximately 101ha in size. The partially cleared area located at the northern side of the site is planned to be utilised for sport and recreation purposes with the remainder set aside primarily for conservation values (approx. 57ha). It is envisaged however, that trails would offer recreational activity and connections as well as help with land management.

The Redlands Coast Regional Sport and Recreation Precinct is being delivered on land purchased for the purpose at 277-293 Heinemann Road, Mount Cotton.

The project, delivered by Council with assistance from the Queensland Government and in consultation with the community, will provide Redlands Coast with more sport and recreation facilities. The precinct will allow Council to better meet current and future City needs while also protecting a significant area of natural habitat.

The sport and recreation precinct will:

  • provide more sport and recreation parkland for the city
  • deliver high quality sport and recreation facilities
  • accommodate city wide and regional sport and recreation events
  • protect areas of existing natural habitat

    Council expresses its thanks to everyone who attended the community drop-in information session at Mount Cotton Hall on 15 September 2019.

    During the drop-in session and other community consultations over the past six months, we have received numerous messages of support for the project and some great ideas about city-wide recreation and sporting interests.

    A key outcome from these consultations is a recognition that Redlands Coast will need even more land to meet its current and future recreation and sporting needs. As a result, Council will be investigating additional land opportunities and how to improve the quality of existing facilities.

    We look forward to hearing your views about how the draft master plan meets the city’s needs for now and well into the future.

    Thank you again for your support of this exciting project.

    Where are we now?

    Precinct master planning activities have started and are scheduled for completion by the end of 2019. These activities include:

    • understanding trends and emerging issues
    • supply and demand investigations
    • detailed site planning studies
    • the development of precinct concepts and a master plan
    • targeted stakeholder engagement, including consultation with neighbours

    Implementation of the master plan will require ongoing collaboration between the Queensland Government and Redland City Council, and will involve community engagement. Timeframes for implementation will depend on prioritisation of budgets.

    What is next?

    Council will conduct a number of technical studies, including cultural heritage, ecological, geotechnical and services capacity, and residents may see contractors on site.
