No ball games at Rec Clubs

The Principal Bodies Corporate have implemented a rule at the Rec Clubs to ban all ball games. This is due to the risk of breaking the glass pool fencing and the decision came in response to Workplace Health and Safety (WH&S) legislation which dictates that a committee must act if they determine a hazard in a public area. 

Our Security Team will be enforcing this rule.

Please note that tennis balls are only allowed on the tennis courts and that ball games are still allowed on the Rec 2 oval.

Water conservation - check your sprinklers

Did you know that South East Queensland is still working under the Queensland Water Commission's Permanent Water Conservation Measures (PWCM)? The PWCM relates to the use of town water (not including recycled water).

 

Many residents are understandably using their irrigation systems at the moment. Please check your sprinklers to ensure that you are using water efficiently, even when using recycled water. Some systems have been seen not working properly including sprinkler heads not popping up (under grass) and spraying in the wrong direction (including onto driveways and roads).

Are you a responsible pet owner? Did you know that pets in Coomera Waters must comply with both CW by-laws and Gold Coast City Council local laws?  Here's a list of all the rules ...

DOG rules according to the Gold Coast City Council's Local Law No. 12 (Keeping and Control of Animals) requires all dogs to;

Our CW by-laws also state that dogs;

  • be kept on their owner's property AT ALL TIMES - you can be issued with a $75 fine if your cat is found outside your property and the animal may be impounded
  • wear an identification collar
  • be microchipped
  • be desexed at an early age
  • cat registration is no longer required by Council.

 

Our CW by-laws require that cats;

  • be kept indoors overnight from 6pm till 6am
  • wear an identifying tag or be microchipped
