A message from Paul Taylor, Councillor for Division 10, May 2016

Welcome to May 2016 Newsletter

All Abilities Playground Broadbeach

The ever-popular All Abilities Playground will be undergoing some much-needed renovation work requiring the playground to be closed for approximately three weeks commencing Monday 9 May. For more information visit CLICK HERE.

Signage is in place advising the community of the impending closure and the availability of alternative playground facilities approximately 200m to the south.

Mobile CCTV Cameras Gladys Moncrieff Park Sorrento

On Friday 22 April the Council endorsed the provision of Divisional funds to purchase two mobile CCTV units for use within Division 10.

It is proposed the units will initially be utilised in Gladys Moncrieff Park following a serious incident which occurred late last year.

At a later date, the cameras can be relocated to other areas within Division 10 as required.

Broadbeach Core Business Precinct Master Plan

The Broadbeach Core Business Precinct Master Plan is now available online. Going forward the plan will ensure Broadbeach remains an exciting and vibrant precinct while providing a vision for future development of the area.

Improvements are proposed in short, medium and long term intervals for public open spaces including the Broadbeach Mall. Principal parks in Broadbeach will also be major beneficiaries and our streetscapes will benefit immensely with their ultimate transformation to become quality pedestrian boulevards that will include additional seating, lighting and street tree planting.

More pedestrian connectivity will be achieved through pedestrian-friendly shared zones that when combined, will support first-rate recreational, cultural and social activities in this major city hub.

This is a really exciting time for Broadbeach, particularly with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth GamesTM on the horizon so visit HERE or HERE.

A trial will commence shortly for mobile food trucks, coffee and beverage venders to operate during limited times and locations in a number of parks across the City.

Pratten Park and Cascade Gardens are two of the locations selected as they are well away from permanent food and beverage outlets.

If the trial is successful, the City will look to make food truck parks a permanent feature of the Gold Coast that are a "must-do" activity for visitors and locals.

Register your dog on line

Owners can now register their dog/s online, making it even easier to manage dog registration.

The new online dog registration:

  • requires customers to upload any supporting documentation (e.g. desexing certificate, pension concessions)
  • fees will be calculated automatically and payment can be made via credit card
  • customers should allow 21 days to receive their dog registration tag and certificate in the mail (in the interim, the transaction receipt will provide proof of registration).

Oasis Shopping Centre Pedestrian Footbridge

The pedestrian footbridge above the intersection of Surf Parade and Victoria Avenue Broadbeach was recently demolished following application by the owners of the infrastructure; the Oasis Shopping Centre.

Its removal has certainly opened up the area with the outlook now providing easterly vistas to Kurrawa Park.
