BeCA had its first meeting for 2011 on Jan 31st. All members were in attendance. Click on any of the photos below for a larger view.
(1) concerns on rubbish and lawn clippings being dumped on Council property. This was seen as an issue for SCRC rather the BeCA.
(2) the behaviour of traffic at the front of Bellvista Market Place and the positioning of crossing points. Some traffic seems to travel fairly quickly in this area so the issue was put on an agenda for discussion with the Councillor. The photo left shows the crossing points concerned. Anyone would be foolish to cross here.
(3) concern by a resident on the quality of recent grass mowing on the estate. This issue has been dealt with in another post here on the website. SCRC Parks and Gardens has been asked to respond on the concern.
(4) an email enquiry to hire the Land Sales Office for a child’s birthday party. This facility is owned by Stockland. To BeCa’s knowledge it is not available for hire. Stockland Sunshine Coast can be contacted at (07) 5444 1333.
(5) an email enquiry on a primary school being included in the plans for Bellvista2. Preliminary plans that BeCA has seen do not include any school. However BeCA will raise this again when speaking with Stockland who appear keen to meet with BeCA in the near future.
The meeting then moved on to Reports and General Business.
The first Newsletter for 2011 ‘The Bellvista Connector’ is about to be printed and delivered to all homes on the estate. BeCA seeks further volunteers to assist with delivering the Newsletters. Usually a person is asked to deliver between 120 and 200 newsletters. Contact the BeCA Secretary via email by clicking HERE or by phoning 0407546311 if you are available to help.
There is a concern over several bushes beside the street sign which tend to restrict the view of traffic entering and leaving Bellvista Market Place. SCRC Parks and Gardens will be contacted to remove the plants.

There has not been any negative feedback from residents effected by the carpark lighting at Bellvista Market Place since baffles have been installed.
BeCA wishes to arrange a meeting in the near future with Councillor Anna Grosskreutz to pursue issues effecting residents. These issues include road line marking and traffic movement outside Bellvista Market Place, any further action on the dangerous bus stop in Bellcarra Place, the dangerous crossing point at the foot of Bellvista Blvd, the deterioration of roads on the estate especially Bellvista Blvd following recent heavy rain, an emergency exit/entry to the estate, an update on the construction of the Toilet Block at the main park and, any further activity on renaming the main park area.
BeCA will invite a representative from the SCRC to speak at the next Public Meeting (March 7th) on Emergency Management on the Bellvista Estate. This should alert Bellvista residents on how the SCRC would react to an emergency here on the estate.
BeCA has heard that several residents have been injured recently when falling on slippery pathways around the estate. BeCA wishes to remind all residents of the need to be careful when walking after rain and to wear appropriate footwear. “Slippery When Wet” signs are NOT available for pathways. Residents will need to exercise full care in these situations. See the photo below.
The next BeCA meeting is a Public Meeting and will be conducted at 6:45 pm in the Land Sales Office on March 7th. All residents, business owners and landowners are invited to attend.
