Nambour Activation Plan

Nambour Activation Plan

Its no secret that Nambour is on the cusp of some dramatic change, its been evolving for a few years now. The great news is that a plan has been developed to activate the spaces in and around the Nambour CBD plus four key projects have been identified.


The Nambour Activation Plan provides the framework to activate the streets and places of Nambour and enable local businesses and community to continue to energise the township and celebrate their place.

Nambour is a well-resourced service centre with a diverse range of education, health and social infrastructure in close proximity to key growth areas and economic game changes on the Sunshine Coast. Nambour is well positioned to build on these valuable assets and look towards a bright future.

In February 2015, a two day ‘Nambour Place Creation Workshop’ was held to discuss the future direction for Nambour. Facilitated by Place Focus, the workshop was attended by community members and council officers and involved a placemaking and urban design skills training program, and a visioning and scoping exercise to formulate a place activation plan for Nambour.

From a combination of this workshop, placemaking studies and previous studies of projects in Nambour and the surrounding area a Draft Nambour Activation Plan was created.  Council endorsed the draft Nambour Activation Plan on July 23 for community comment.  Following this process, the Nambour Activation Plan was adopted by the Sunshine Coast Council on 15 October 2015.

This Activation Plan belongs to the community, local businesses and land owners. It is council’s intention to support and assist the implementation of the Activation Plan where appropriate; however the success of the Activation Plan rests with the community.

Now more than ever Nambour, and the surrounding towns, need to build confidence in the area as it reinvents itself as a thriving and extraordinary place to live, work and play.
