Mt Coot-tha to be protected under plan

26 June, 2009

Brisbane City Council is getting on with the job of protecting one of Brisbane’s most recognised natural icons with the launch of three public workshops under the Mt Coot-tha Master Plan.

Environment Chair Peter Matic said the Master Plan was about establishing a shared vision for Mt Coot-tha and its multiple attractions over the next 20 years.

"We want to explore with people in some detail the different aspects of Mt Coot-tha, and focus on three strong angles - the historical perspective, recreation and leisure, and environment and sustainability,” he said.

“What we’re trying to do is to get a view on how people think Mt Coot-tha should be preserved into the future, and how its unique features can be shared and enjoyed by people who visit.

"At the end of these workshops, we hope to have a better idea of the next steps for the Master Plan, which is a document that will shape the next 20 years.

Each session will feature a guest speaker and will be followed by a workshop allowing discussion of the theme and encouraging input into the visioning process:
History and memories
Saturday 4 July 2009 - 1.30pm to 3pm
Venue: Bardon Hall, 247 Simpsons Road, Bowman Park, Bardon
Recreation and leisure
Wednesday 15 July 2009 - 6pm to 7.30pm
Venue: Riverlife - Naval Stores, Lower River Terrace, Kangaroo Point
Sustainability and the environment
Tuesday 28 July 2009 - 6pm to 7.30pm
Venue: Lakeside Café, Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens

To register contact 3403 8064 at least three working days beforehand.

Cr Matic said in the first session, attendees will be treated to a unique snapshot of the fascinating history of the area and how Mt Coot-tha has served the community.

“The first session will explore opportunities currently available in the area, what might be missing from these experiences, and how we can build on them,” he said.

“These workshops will reveal more of the many unknown features of one of Brisbane’s greatest assets - all reasons why we need to preserve and plan for its future.”

Cr Matic said people could feedback what they value about Mt Coot-tha through an online survey at www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/mtcoot-tha, before August 4.
