YOUR SAY

HAVE YOUR SAY ON STRENGTHENING YOUR COMMUNITY Redlands Coast residents are invited to share their ideas on how their communities could be made even stronger. Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said Council has opened public consultation on two important draft strategic plans aimed at safeguarding Redlands Coast’s much-envied lifestyle. “The Redlands Coast Stronger Communities Strategy 2024-2027 sets out a framework for planning and delivery of approaches and initiatives to ensure that we continue to strengthen the social fabric of our city,” Cr Williams said. “Also open for comment is the Redlands Coast Young People’s Action Plan 2024-2027 that is focussed on building safe, strong and connected communities that cater for the needs of our young people." Community consultation on both plans is now open. The consultation period continues until 5 December 2023.

Mayor Karen Williams said the one-off $500,000 Civic Support Fund aimed to assist residents who have been impacted by cost of living pressures. “We know there are people on Redlands Coast who are doing it tough and this fund has been established to offer assistance to the community where it is needed the most,” Cr Williams said. “It aims to support not only those who have been financially or materially impacted by rising costs of living, but those who have increased risk factors such as experiencing or at risk of homelessness or domestic and family violence.” Cr Williams said eligible community organisations were able to apply for grants for initiatives that addressed local needs in areas not covered by other levels of government.Applications will remain open until 30 June 2024 or available funds are exhausted.
