    Council has funding to construct a footpath, approximately 600m long starting at the entrance to the Byfield Store.

    Contrary to public desire, the footpath will be constructed on the right side of Byfield Road (Byfield Store side) as the verge is wider and flatter and on the same side of Yaxleys Road which will ultimately avoid another road crossing in the future. Council officers have consulted with the school on this final decision and all are in agreeance that this is the safest option for the school children.

    Construction of the footpath is expected to commence in May/June 2021.

  • Community identifies top priorities for Council's annual budget

    More investment in roads, economic development, parks and open spaces, sport, and community development projects are just some of the key areas residents would like to see considered in Council’s 2020/21 annual budget.

    Council’s Engagement and Events Team conducted a community survey earlier this year to gauge the community’s thoughts and ideas regarding its priorities for the 2020/21 budget.

    Mayor Andy Ireland said the survey would contribute towards providing a comprehensive scope to assist Council in planning and allocating funding towards capital works and community projects.

    “Council is forecast to invest $34 million towards the renewal of existing assets and construction of new assets for our growing Shire in line with the expectations of the community as captured in the Livingstone Community Plan: Towards 2050,” Cr Ireland said.

    “As a result of the fantastic feedback from this survey, the majority of residents who took part expressed their desire to see more funding allocated towards Council services including rural and urban road networks (gravel sheeting, sealing and resealing), shared pathways (cycle ways, rail trails and footpaths), drainage (floodway construction, kerb and channel, flood mitigation), waste recycling (transfer stations, landfills, education programmes) and wastewater (sewerage, network upgrades and water recycling).

    “Overall the community was clear on what it would like to see in the way of improving our Shire’s services and facilities through enhanced liveability, a thriving community and stronger communication between Council and the community.

    “Livingstone is welcoming, connected, and resilient with a relaxed community spirit, celebrated for its natural beauty, vibrant culture, and thriving economy and Council’s vision is to continue to build on that principle for the betterment of our Shire and its residents.”

    Council is currently undertaking budget deliberations, with the annual budget expected to be adopted in July.

    You can view the survey results via Councils interactive dashboard https://getinvolved.livingstone.qld.gov.au/ under the Previous Events and Activities Tab.
