Noosa Councillor Amelia Lorentson has welcomed the funding from Sandy Bolton MP to assist Council in the purchase of a wheelchair beach mat for Noosa Main Beach.

“We boast some of the best beaches and a huge thanks to Sandy Bolton for helping open up the ocean to a lot more beachgoers,” she said.

Council is working with potential stakeholders to finalise details on how best to deliver the mat.

Cr Lorentson said Council was committed to giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy a day at the beach.

“Inclusion is very important to me and our council and this mat makes the beach much more accessible to people with a disability, those in wheelchairs, assist mothers with strollers, and the 7-9ers ie our pink cap seniors ” she said.
