March update

Redlands Coast Regional Sport and Recreation Precinct is an exciting, intergenerational project that will help meet the sport and recreation needs of our growing community while also protecting a significant area of natural habitat.

Council has an important role in providing sports and recreation facilities for enhanced community health, and this project is expected to bring a range of health, wellbeing and economic benefits for Redlands Coast locals and the wider south-east Queensland region.

Following Council’s referral of the project under the Australian Government’s EPBC Act, the Department has determined that the project will be treated as a ‘controlled action’ and will be requesting that additional information be provided before the final referral decision is made.

Council has high environmental stewardship credentials, and the self-referral of the final design for the precinct is a clear sign of our commitment to providing our existing and future communities with a green, liveable and active city that supports their physical and mental wellbeing.

Council planned and prepared the project and subsequent referral to be potentially treated as a controlled action by ensuring the precinct was optimally designed to reflect best practice of avoidance, mitigation, rehabilitation, dispersal and protective environmental actions.

We hope the project will not be unnecessarily delayed, thereby enabling Redlands Coast sporting organisations to benefit from the new facilities, and other city-wide sporting and recreation groups to benefit from the transformation and unlocking of vacated sites.
