'Can we activate the future potential of the present moment by living a more beautiful world today?'
This Facebook page was developed to be about a place where ideas, local knowledge, current happenings and natural cycles can be shared, explored and nurtured.
The page was called Peregian Beach Village as part of the InPeregianBeach.com website I built in 2011, so there was a place where visitors & locals could connect to the natural beauty of a place & all the voluntary groups activities happening in the local community. I changed the fb page name & dropped it off the map in May 2016 to give it the opportunity to be more metaphysical and without fear of representing developers & the real estate agent/traders association who have their own agenda for the place.

The protection of the origin of a natural spring became a significant reason to site the community garden where it is.
Soil from the Peregian Springs Coles construction site became the boundary berm and the old pavement bricks from Hasting Street became the pathways and common area.
In 2009 we formed a co operative of three local designers working in unison to assist community projects and develop council urban design and town planning initiatives.
Our objective was to bridge the gap between the townplanning & public art policies and the private & community developments.

Here's hoping the new Noosa Council revisits the design of their street banners and considers this design concept.
This website has been designed as a placemaking project to showcase the town in which I lives-Peregian Beach, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.
It aims to associate place meaning with place economics.
The concept is to create a virtual place to identify the social & environmental wealth and values held by the local community.
This is an excercise using facebook as a social medium for public interaction in current everyday community activities & happenings. The objective of this project is to connect with the natural cycles & beauty the place aswell as highlight the efforts of groups & volunteers in our local community.
In 2013 I became caretaker secretary for old Peregian Beach Bowls Club that had closed down and reformed as the Peregian Beach Sports & Recreation Club.
The Vision on the Village is the legacy of the club.
This proactive community driven document was a major conponent for reinforcing the importance of this site in the master plan for town and it's contribution to the recreational precinct that is inherent to the character of the town.
In 2014 the developer negotitating with the land owner, withdrew their appeal in the Environmental Land Court for Supermarket development.
