To whom it may concern

I am a Leading Vocational Teacher at the Southern Queensland Institute of TAFE. I have been in this position for over fifteen years and a significant portion of my role is devoted to improving the health of communities across the Maranoa through healthy cookery classes designed to accommodate a variety of demographics.

I am writing in support of the continuation of the Be Healthy Maranoa Initiative. I have a vested interest in the longevity of this project, as I have worked closely with Be Healthy Maranoa since its inception, with very positive results for my organisation, the Roma area and the wider community.

Examples of the classes I have collaborated on with Be Healthy Maranoa include healthy catering, diabetic cookery, heart health, catering for sporting groups and general healthy cookery classes. I was also recently involved in a cookery demonstration for “Healthy Weight Week” in conjunction with the BHM team and Queensland Health.

BHM staff are instrumental in identifying target markets for classes, recruiting students, engaging in promotion and collating feedback. They also attend my classes and deliver educational components relative to the particular group. The hands-on nature of my delivery, combined with this educational aspect, has been shown to be ideal for student satisfaction and positive outcomes in regard to community health.

Performance of the roles as described above is of significant benefit to me, as I can focus on delivering quality training, knowing that the necessary preparatory work is taken care of.  We have developed these roles over time into what is now a streamlined process in which everyone is confident and comfortable.

Attendance at BHM meetings is not solely about healthy cookery classes. The major benefit to me, and to TAFE as a whole, is the networking that occurs there. I recently introduced our rural teacher to BHM and she made a contact which will generate business for TAFE and assist the rural community as well. Being a small rural area, it is essential that different organisations work together in order to bring about change. BHM promotes a culture of working together, which enhances our professional interactions and sees us achieving the goals we set as a team.

My original contact with BHM was Julie Neil. She was innovative, proactive and motivated. I was extremely sorry to see her go and concerned about how she could be replaced. I believe she created a position which is now essential in the community. Natalijia has embraced Julie’s legacy and made it her own. She presents excellent ideas and has the work ethic to ensure these ideas come to fruition. Her outstanding communication skills and knowledge of the local area and its people make it easy to formulate projects and see them through to completion.

My support of Be Healthy Maranoa is long-standing. I believe that Natalijia’s position is essential, particularly given the dire statistics recently released on the health of rural residents. BHM and Natalijia in particular really make a difference. Please continue the position.

Sincerely

Fiona Flanders

To Whom It May Concern

 

Maranoa Health Enhancement Program (MHEP) under the auspice of Blue Care conducted a DOHA funded Rural Primary Health Service in the Maranoa and Balonne for a period of 9 years concluding 30th June 2013, with goals of achieving improved health outcomes for the rural communities of our region.

 

As such Maranoa Health Enhancement Program has worked closely in partnership with Maranoa Regional Council during this whole period, with successful collaborations across the Maranoa involving infrastructure, program delivery and policy change to improve health outcomes by addressing health determinants and by providing support to all in our communities to make improved lifestyle choices that build capacity and sustainability.

 

Some of the programs include the collaborative between Maranoa Regional Council Healthy Community Initiative and the MHEP Preventative Health Initiative which focused on the establishment of community gardens in small communities of the Maranoa and Balonne, purchase of outdoor gym equipment now managed by council in these centres, and promotion of healthy food choices by information provision, workshops and in store identification. Shared resources and promotion of programs were reciprocated by both parties ensuring decreased duplication and improved sustainability. Our organisation has also been involved in BHM since inception and values this forum to facilitate the shared goals of improved health outcomes for our communities. The associated Co-ordinator and Healthy Communities Officer position is pivotal in identifying, maintaining and co-ordinating responses to these desired outcomes and having these positions sit within such a regional presence is of definitely advantage.

 

Many other successful collaboratives between our two organisations have focused on reducing incidents of chronic disease burden in our community with emphasis on increasing physical activity, reduced alcohol and tobacco consumption, improved nutritional choices, mental health and co-ordination and access issues. These programs were always evaluated for relativity, learnings and application and rated highly and in the main between 75%- 95% satisfaction. Blue Care continues it partnering with your organisation through the delivery of nutritional education to our aged care cohort also.

 

Our organisation fully supports the Be Healthy Maranoa program and as such the staff attached to this and hope to continue our successful partnerships and shared goals of improved health for the communities of the Maranoa well in to the future.

 

Yours faithfully

To Whom it May Concern,

 

Letter of Support - Be Healthy Maranoa Initiative

 

I am writing to display strong support towards the continuation of the Be Healthy Maranoa (BHM) program that has been operational within Maranoa Regional Council for three and a half years and would like to highlight some positive and beneficial aspects which have enhanced sport and recreation delivery during that time, within the Maranoa.

 

Being involved with BHM from the project inception I have seen valued growth and collaborated assistance with a wide range of community groups in the Maranoa.  Representatives from local health care groups, aged care and seniors groups, disabled and indigenous groups and sport and education, meet regularly through BHM to canvass ideas and link together and partner on various programs.

 

Benefits I have witnessed of the BHM program are wide-ranging across all communities in the Maranoa taking into consideration each one’s unique situations of age and cultural demographics. This has included the sharing of resources and opportunities to increase data bases for promotion and awareness of services and programs being conducted across the Maranoa. 

 

As Coordinator Sport and Recreation with Maranoa Regional Council, I have worked closely with Kate Thompson, Julie Neil and Natalija Pearn, Coordinators for BHM to identify community needs and work toward improved sport and recreational prospects for a range of varied community members. My favourite BHM projects delivered are the installation of outdoor gym equipment and community gardens along the walking trails, web page with sporting group contacts for new residents to view, and the document prepared for a western extension route to Roma’s Adungadoo Pathway. I have enjoyed an extremely positive and rewarding relationship with all Coordinators and believe it is vital to retain a health-focused position within Council, for a networking and coordination focus involving numerous pivotal health-focused groups within the region.

 

In conclusion I reiterate my overall support towards the efforts of the BHM Initiative and would like to see this project retained within Council to progress current programs already in place, those in the planning stages and to continue partnering and building valuable tools and resources to be used by community members.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

 

 

Fiona Vincent

Body of Report

 

Background Information

 

The site is situated at 129-131 McDowall Street, Roma, shown in Figure 1.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Figure 1: Subject Site (Source: SARA mapping online)

 

Council issued a development approval for a Motel (25 units and manager’s residence) on the site on 29 July 2013. The applicant subsequently sought and obtained a Negotiated Decision Notice for the development on 18 December 2014.  It is a requirement of the Negotiated Decision Notice that an amended awning design be submitted to Council for review and approval.

 

Condition 56 of the Negotiated Decision Notice reads:

 

“An awning over a pedestrian footpath must be provided in accordance with the approved plans listed in condition 3 and must accord with DTMR requirements for lateral and vertical clearances for awnings along both streets and truncation. The design of the awning is to be amended, where necessary, to ensure that the bottle tree located within McDowall Street (shown on Drawing No.00197/11, sheet 4), is retained and protected”.

 

To satisfy the requirements of condition 56, the applicant has submitted an amended awning design for Council’s consideration. 

 

The proposed awning has been designed to align with a 6x6 metre truncation at the corner of the site on McDowall Street and Quintin Street, and extends along the footpath in both directions for a distance equivalent to the former Empire Hotel awning.  The awning measures 2.1 metres in width and is located clear of the existing bottle tree in McDowall Street. 

 

The design comprises cantilevered beams over the footpath with a mix of colorbond roof sheeting and decorative panels to add light and variation.

 

The awning design was reviewed by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) as a concurrence agency for the original application.   DTMR have advised that the design appears compliant the requirements of their Road Planning and Design Manual.  DTMR have also advised that a Road Corridor Permit will be required to establish the awning within the road reserve. 

 

The awning design achieves the outcomes sought by both the current Roma Town Planning Scheme and draft Maranoa Planning Scheme with respect to local character and pedestrian amenity.  The awning will be subject to building works approval.
