Mission Beach Town Centre to be revitalised

CASSOWARY Coast Regional Council has revealed that construction is scheduled to commence in April 2024 on the Mission Beach Town Centre Revitalisation Project.

It is envisaged that this project will transform the Mission Beach town centre through infrastructure roads, drainage, landscaping, and lighting.

The construction contract has been awarded to RMS Engineering and Construction Pty Ltd. Construction is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2025.

The $18.98 million Mission Beach Town Centre Revitalisation Project includes the upgrade of ageing stormwater infrastructure and redevelopment of the Mission Beach Village Green and adjacent Porter Promenade.

Guided by the 2018 Mission Beach Strategic Master Plan, Council endorsed the project design in October 2023 following extensive community consultation.

Assistant Minister for Local Government Ali King said that the government was proud to help Queensland’s hardworking councils to build and upgrade priority infrastructure.

“The transformation of the Mission Beach town centre is just one of the projects we’re supporting to make this community even better, while also delivering good local jobs,” she said.

“Since 2015 the Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program has supported seven projects across the Cassowary Coast, creating or supporting more than 285 jobs. Over this period LGGSP has provided more than $9.3 million to Cassowary Coast Regional Council.”

This project is proudly funded by the Queensland Government’s Local Government Grants and Subsidies program in association with Cassowary Coast Regional Council.

Construction will be undertaken in a staged approach to minimise impacts on local businesses along Porter Promenade and the Village Green.

RMS Engineering and Construction will commence upgrading of the stormwater outlet along the Foreshore working their way through the village green area. Parking changes during and after construction along David Street will be communicated to minimise inconvenience to the public.

As the project progresses, and timeframes are confirmed, updates will be provided on the Council’s Project website, Facebook page and through fortnightly community updates.

These updates will provide further details on what the community can expect to see at each stage of the works.

The Cassowary Coast Regional Council remains committed to minimising disruptions (where possible), engaging with the traders and operators to keep all informed about the next steps in this transformative journey.

A site office will be available on weekdays for the community to drop in and ask any questions or collect up-to-date information.

Cassowary Coast Regional Council will soon be launching a “Shop Mission Beach” campaign to support the local traders and operators through exciting initiatives.
