SANDSTONE Point residents are pleased Moreton Bay Regional Council has finally revealed a plan to fix Pebble Beach common but they fear if the works do not begin soon the plan will be ineffective.
Sandstone Point Community Association president Herb Coleman said the association was happy with the plan, but if the council did not get around to fixing it before the wet season it would be useless.
"The plan is fine if they can fix it before the wet season arrives," he said.
"We did have a few problems with it such as planting hedges which we think would be a rubbish trap. Generally we are happy with it but let's see some action."
Mr Coleman referred to a plan that was announced a few years ago which never came to fruition.
"I guess money is tight but it takes so long to get anything done," he said.
Mr Coleman said the main issue with the common was the inadequate drainage, which was disastrous in the wet season.
"It looks fine now as it has been dry for a while but it was a swamp for a long time," he said.
While Mr Coleman said the world would still turn if the common was not fixed, it was something the community had been fighting for at least five years.
A Moreton Bay Regional Council spokesman said the Sandstone Point Community Association had been kept up to date on the project's progress.
"The association has been advised tenders for the project have been called and are currently being evaluated,'' the spokesman said.
He said construction was expected to begin later this year, subject to negotiation with the successful contractor.
