The countdown is on with only 10 days remaining until the region's largest environmental awareness event, Ecofest.

Coinciding with World Environment Day, Gladstone Tondoon Botanic Gardens will provide an ideal backdrop for the environmental spectacular on Sunday, June 2 from 9am to 3pm.

In a first this year, the event will also incorporate a GREAN (Gladstone Region Environmental Advisory Network) Forum, on Saturday, June 1.

Residents are invited to have their say on the proposed $40 million Philip Street Communities Precinct development.

This project is contingent on Council securing funding from sources other than Council borrowings or general rates.

If developed, the precinct will include a 200-unit retirement village, 60 residential allotments and a new child and family centre.
