Help us shape the future of spaces where we connect, learn and play.

Community centres, historic halls, libraries, parks and recreational facilities are vital in maintaining the lifeblood of our communities. They’re used for everything from mums and bubs yoga, amateur dramatics and dog training to arts festivals and international sporting events.

We're asking for public feedback on a draft strategy shaping how these community facilities might be developed to suit the current and future needs of the district’s population.


The draft strategy


Based on Council’s 2018 report Our community spaces and other detailed research, the QLDC Community Facilities Strategy has been drafted to provide a framework to guide Council’s future decision making relating to the development of new facilities, upgrades to existing facilities, the potential to transition away from facilities that no longer meet current community needs, and opportunities to partner with other providers across the district.

Download the draft strategy from the Documents section on the right.




The engagement summary


We've produced a four-page document outlining the key points of the strategy and how you can have your say.
