Helen Andrew started this petition to Sunshine Coast Council and

Transition Towns Sunshine Coast is starting a dialogue with the Sunshine Coast Council to reduce red tape and provide more supportive policies, enabling rural landowners to use their land for community benefit. The Sunshine Coast, like many regional areas, is faced with many challenges including:

Agricultural Land - Landowners are under increasing pressure to manage and care for their land.  Many landowners are resource-poor and would like to be supported in caring for the land by others committed to the environment.  

Inclusive Housing - Homeownership is disappearing, the homeless rate is growing & the number of millennials entering the home market is increasing. We need to provide flexible & inclusive housing options.

Food insecurity - Food insecurity is real for many Sunshine Coast residents. We have an opportunity to open up fertile growing land to create a more resilient local food supply ecosystem that is sustainable and accessible.

Social Enterprise - Landowners have a valuable asset they would like to use to solve some of our local social, environmental, and cultural challenges like meaningful employment, climate change, and mental health.

Please support our petition and have your voice heard.  If you would like to contribute to our working group please complete this Expression of Interest.
