We are into Magpie Swooping season and we have a few hot spots around the estate causing some concern. Bike riders appear to be the main targets and locals are taking various steps to minimise the problems.
The Bellvista Blvd/Dumbarton Ave roundabout has one aggressive fellow while again the small park on Glennie Close near O’Reilly Drive sees another chap who gives some bike riders a hard time.
You can keep up with the latest magpie hotspots on this website on our “Living With Magpies” page under the News & Events tab. Or click HERE.
The building going on over at Bells Reach has to be seen to be believed. Another row of double story units and a row of 5 single storey units are currently being built. There is certainly a range of home styles available there.
The fantastic Adventure Playground near the Bells Reach Land Sales Office is so popular it attracts visitors from all over Caloundra.
This is a concern for new home buyers living close by who are having their newly planted nature strip lawns parked on by thoughtless visitors to the Adventure Playground.
These nature strips are soft and newly planted and aren’t capable of standing the weight of a parked car. The driver who then speeds off and digs up the newly planted lawn is also not welcome.
BeCA has approached Stockland on behalf of a Bells Reach resident with a view for some sort of arrangement for local home owners.
The new Cafe at Bells Reach is now due to open in January 2014. There will also be a carpark area which hopefully will remove many of the parked cars from nearby streets.
