  • Community invited to have a say on Keppel Kraken Maintenance Options

    11 Sep 2020

    Council is launching an online survey this week to gauge the community’s preference on a number of safety options being considered to improve Yeppoon water play feature, Keppel Kraken.

    Mayor Andy Ireland said the Keppel Kraken is a popular tourism drawcard for the Yeppoon foreshore precinct but some elements of its design presented safety concerns for young children who use the facility.

    “There are a number of hexagonal blocks that make up different sections within the waterpark play area, and they range from single levels, to multiple levels of approximately 1.5 metres,” Mayor Ireland said.

    “While the lower section of the children's wet play area had soft fall installed on the surfaces of its blocks in 2018, there are still sections that require some method of protection for playground users.

    “As a result, Council resolved to establish a business case to explore several options of improved safety measures to ensure the facility operates smoothly while assisting in maximising the lifespan of the attraction.

    “Some of the options residents will get to choose from include covering the tops and side of the hexagon blocks with soft fall, removal of levels of the blocks, or removing the blocks and replacing with seating and gardens, as well as water features.

    “Council has included the estimated construction costs of these options for the community to consider when providing its feedback, to understand the impact on Council’s future budget considerations.

    “Please note that at this stage Council has not secured external government funding for any of the options being considered.

    “These works are an important step to ensure the safety of all children and families who regularly enjoy this wet play area and we encourage residents to jump online and have their say on what improvements they’d like to see carried out at the facility,” Mayor Ireland said.

    Visit Council’s online engagement platform, Get Involved, to take part in the survey at https://getinvolved.livingstone.qld.gov.au/

    The survey is now open and will close Friday, 18 September.

    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.
