Survey for Port Douglas Sports Complex & Coronation Park Master Plan

You are invited to play a part in planning the future of the Port Douglas Sports Complex and Coronation Park by completing our online questionnaire.

Douglas Shire Council is preparing master plans for the sites and has appointed CPR Group to develop the plans. You can use this opportunity to make Council aware of the way in which the sites are currently used, how they could be used in the future, and what future equipment and infrastructure could benefit all site user groups.

Even if you or your organisation has not used the sites in the past, you may have ideas to improve the way they could be used in the future.

Have you say by completing this survey, which should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

Submissions close on Sunday, 15th December 2019.
