We are extremely fortunate to have a wonderful new facility such as the new Bellvista Meeting Place. Regretfully, and as with most areas, an element exists in the community which believes it can deface or damage public buildings and facilities at will.
Such as the school boy in full local school uniform who was spotted recently climbing on the new sail. It is a shame we didn’t get a name or a photo of the offender. However the incident has been reported to the school involved!
And there was a group who decided to rip up much of the new safety adhesive tactile sheets designed to make slippery surfaces safe.
Both incidents have been reported to SC Council for attention.
As the Bellvista Meeting Place (BMP) is now owned by the Council, and as with many government buildings, any priority to upgrade any CCTV surveillance is usually dependent on the number of Police Reports recorded. BeCA understands a new round of funding applications for Councils for CCTV coverage will be available early in 2015.
BeCA therefore urges that any case of inappropriate behaviour spotted around the BMP be reported immediately to the Police.
Use these numbers to make a police report: Caloundra Police Station: 07 5439 4444, or Police Link: 131444. Feel free to drop BeCA an email or a report via the Facebook page so we can monitor the activity.
With School Holidays coming up it will be crucial that any inappropriate behaviour be nipped in the bud ASAP.
BeCA seeks the community’s support on this issue. There is also a concern regarding inappropriate use of skateboards on the BMP decking.
