Shadecloth for Airlie foreshore

By Mark Beale

A NEW shade sail has been approved for construction at Lion’s Market Park near the Airlie Beach foreshore.

The Whitsunday Lions Club will build the shade sail, which was approved by council at last week’s meeting.

Whitsunday Regional Council Mayor Jennifer Whitney said council would waive all development fees associated with the construction.

Whitsunday Lions Club president Bill Harrison said that the shade sail would replace the temporary shade structure the club had to erect each time the markets are held.

“It’s going to enhance the facilities of the market and makes the market more user-friendly during the hotter times of the year,” he said.

“It’ll be somewhere people can go and rest with their children and get out of the sun.”

Mr Harrison said the Whitsunday Lions Club appreciated the assistance that council had given them in facilitating the construction of the structure.

Mayor Whitney said council was pleased to help the Whitsunday Lions Club provide essential community infrastructure to help make the region’s parks more enjoyable all year round.

“The new permanent structure will provide benefit to the general public at all times and will be able to be used for any function in this location,” she said.
