UPDATE 29/3/19: Noosa, Gympie and Sunshine Coast Councils have now endorsed the final Regional Facilities Plan for Difficult to Locate Sports. Download and view the Plan in the document library to the right of the page, or view it on the website. Council thanks the community for taking the time to provide input during the consultation period.

A new plan Noosa, Sunshine Coast and Gympie Councils have drafted to ensure the region’s difficult-to-locate sports are better catered for is open for public comment.

The draft Regional Facilities Plan considers the needs of aviation sports, motorcycling sports, competitive powered water sports and shooting.

“These are sports with requirements that are often harder to accommodate than those of other sports, such as access to large land areas or sites where they can make noise without adversely impacting residents,” says Noosa Council Community Development Officer Mark Borgert.

“As people regularly travel across the three shires to participate in their chosen sports it makes sense for the three councils to work together to avoid duplicating infrastructure and to ensure we’re making the most of the facilities already available across the region. This Plan will help to achieve that,” he said.

Mr Borgert said the draft Plan was prepared with input from community sport clubs and State associations. It included various recommendations to help clubs in the four sports across the wider region grow, as well as set short, medium and long-term Council priorities.

Some of the recommendations include:

  • A regional facility to accommodate events within the aviation industry preferred for development at the Tin Can Bay Model Flying Club airfield.
  • An upgrade of Coolum Pines Motocross facility, with further motorcycling trails to be developed on private land adjacent to Conondale Memorial Recreation Reserve.
  • The potential use of an old quarry to create a new watersports lake for the region.
  • Development of a new shooting facility big enough to house all of the existing Gympie-based clubs.
