Barung Landcare on the Maleny Precinct Information Night

As we advised at the AGM last year, your management committee has been working with the Sunshine Coast Council to finalise a permanent location for Barung on the Maleny Precinct. This process culminated in the signing of an “Agreement to Lease” with the Council in June. This agreement does not yet commit Barung or the council to a formal lease, but it does set out the terms on which such a lease would be offered. Importantly, it reserves the last remaining accessible unallocated space on the Precinct for Barung’s use, and requires us to finalise a business plan and the site layout prior to signing an actual lease agreement.

This is an exciting step in the long-term future of Barung, and the Management Committee invites you to give feedback as we proceed to the detailed design stage of the Education Centre.

The proposed move needs careful consideration, as it will involve a substantial commitment of time, effort and money, and also has the potential to provide us with modern, attractive facilities that will serve the organisation and our community for many years.
You are warmly invited to the information night to be held at the Verandah Room, Maleny Community Centre, at 6.00 pm on Friday 8th September.

Topics to be covered include:

• Why do we need to move at all?

• Why this location?

• What are the terms of the proposed lease?

• What are the advantages and disadvantages?

• What is the future for our Landsborough nursery site?

• What is the proposed Precinct site layout and design philosophy?

Our architect, Tim Guymer, will be present to discuss the site layout and concept design. Feedback and suggestions on the layout are welcome.
