Destination Management Plan for Noosa Shire

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Thank you to all of the residents and businesses that gave input through surveys, workshops, coffee chats and written submissions.

We received over 780 responses to the two surveys, just over 300 participants at community workshops, stakeholder conversations and coffee chats and over 60 written submissions!

Council decided at the December Ordinary Meeting that further analysis of community engagement data collected is required, with further community engagement required in 2024.

You can read the Media Release about the community engagement process dated 15 December 2023 here.

For further details, including the priority issues to be addressed following further analysis of the community engagement data, you can read the Council Report from the Ordinary Meeting on 14 December 2023 here.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Many Noosa Shire residents have come to live here from other places, attracted by the natural beauty, relaxed lifestyle and the diverse landscapes our coast and hinterland towns offer.

We are starting a conversation across the Shire to stimulate discussion and obtain feedback from our Noosa community, on how we can collectively grow well together and sustain and protect the core values and iconic attributes of our place, to ensure Noosa Shire remains appealing and attractive to both residents and visitors. You can read the media release here.

From 15 September to 29 October, we’re inviting all Noosa Shire residents to have their say on their vision for the future of Noosa Shire.

There are a number of actions that Council currently undertakes to manage the visitor economy. We encourage you to read the Discussion Paper and consider a range of opportunities and issues and provide your comments to assist Council in developing a Destination Management Plan.

See the links below to complete the short 5-minute survey, the detailed survey. Or, find out more about all of the engagement opportunities below!
