    Hi, The Your say page for “Airlie Beach - Proposed road access changes“ for the Consultation carried out in April 2020 says “Final report - The final outcomes of the consultation will be documented here on this webpage.” https://yoursay.whitsundayrc.qld.gov.au/airlie-beach-proposed-road-access-change When will this be done? Cheers Clay

    HiFromClay asked 3 months ago

    Hi HiFromClay,

    The proposed road changes are currently sitting with the State Government for review. We will update the page once we have received their decision.

    Thanks, WRC Team

    I am absolutely horrified that the beautiful swimming pool at Proserpine is closing down in May This is absolutely atrocious decision With the Olympic Games coming to Brisbane and so many swimmers it’s a disaster to close it Why wouldn’t you work on pool heater and keep it open as this means only Bowen or Mackay would be open Where can lap swimmers swim So manorate payers are being affected by this shocking decision Please please please reconsider I beg of you to reconsider

    Rabbit asked about 1 month ago

    Dear Rabbit,

    Thank you for your feedback. WRC will be replacing the old Proserpine Pool kiosk building with a new custom-built demountable kiosk. Due to the scale of the works and the demolition and construction required, we will need to close the pool temporarily over May and June 2021. The safety of our community is always our highest priority, therefore the Pool will be closed during these major building works. 

    We acknowledge the temporary closure of the Proserpine Pool will be an inconvenience to you and other regular pool users, and we apologise for this. WRC has chosen the winter period for construction works to reduce the impact to the community as much as possible. Please note the closure is only temporary and the Proserpine Pool will reopen in July with a new and improved kiosk building. An alternative free venue is the swimming lanes at the Airlie Beach Lagoon, which are open from sunrise every morning. 

    Thanks, WRC Team

    Hi, I have been signed up to Your Say for several years and never received an email notification of a new consultation starting, why is this? I have seen a subscription function but never been able to “subscribe” to any project, how does this function work? Cheers Clay

    HiFromClay asked 5 months ago

    Hi Clay, thank you for your query. We don't have an email notification service from Your Say Whitsunday to advise of new consultations. We advertise our consultation processes via our WRC communication channels and in the local papers. 

    In some of our projects, we have a 'Stay Informed' widget on the right hand side of the page, where anyone can 'subscribe' to receive more information on that project (for example, email updates or newsletters).

    Kind regards, WRC Team

    Why is the council not upgrading there road dirt roads in rural/residential areas to their own design codes and ausroads guides. I have witnessed large scale maintenance being conducted resulting in non compliance to councils own requirements within the manual.

    William Brown asked 5 months ago

    Hi William, 

    Thanks for raising your concern. However, without a specific location it is difficult to provide a meaningful response.   

    Generally, when we are undertaking routine maintenance activities, it is reinstating the road back to what it was previously constructed to (in terms of trafficable width and gravel coverage). At times, this previous standard may not comply with the current design standards adopted by Council. In these cases, these projects are put forward as potential future capital works upgrade programs, subject to available funding.

    Council reviews and adopts its 10 year capital works program annually as part of setting its overall budget. This program outlines all the asset renewal (replacing like with like) and upgrade (bringing to current standards) projects to be undertaken over the coming years.

    If you’ve got specific queries about individual projects or wish to suggest projects for potential future upgrade, please contact our Roads & Drainage team to discuss on 1300 972 753.

    Thanks, WRC Team

    Is council aware of the Whitsunday region-wide safety issue of, and broad community concern about stray dogs and dogs not on leads in on lead areas? This is issue is regularly raised on the Bowen & Surrounds Community Group Facebook page following sightings of stray dogs; dogs off leads when they shouldn’t be; and dog attacks on people and other dogs. This is not simply a ranger issue ie rangers picking up/impounding S tray dogs - the rangers do what they can - the issue is broader. It’s about responsible animal care/ management. It’s about community safety and amenity. People are concerned about their safety. They are concerned about their dogs safety when they walk them. As a tourist town, Bowen cannot risk undermining its reputation as a great place to visit.

    Retreat@Bowen asked 6 months ago

    Hi Retreat@Bowen, Council is aware of community concern regarding stray dogs and dogs not under effective control in the Whitsunday region. Our Local Law Officers conduct daily patrols and target problem areas to address these issues that place the community, pets and other animals at risk. We promote responsible pet ownership and undertake education via social media, school programs, special events and on Council’s website. Our aim is to achieve greater awareness of responsible pet management in the community. Thanks, WRC Team
