WATCH out, you could see a woman doing a happy dance around a parking sign in Noosa Junction.

No, she hasn't gone troppo, Sue Harwood is just delighted that after a six-month wait, the 15-minute zone outside her store on Sunshine Beach Rd, Noosa Junction, has been changed to one hour.

And Division 11 Councillor Russell Green didn't have to put it up himself.

That's what he promised to do early this week after Noosa News informed him of the council's inaction on changing the sign.

However, by Wednesday Ms Harwood was having a pre-Christmas celebration and said she was delighted potential customers will now have reasonable parking time for Christmas shopping.

Otherwise she said it looked like people would be donating to council revenue rather than buying Christmas presents.

Ms Harwood sent a petition with 309 signatures to the Sunshine Coast council on August 23, protesting the altered parking time outside her Symbolic Journey store at Sunshine Beach, Noosa Junction.

Ms Harwood said the 15-minute parking was introduced after the parking space had been redeemed from backpacker bus parking to regular carparking.

In her petition, she noted there were other parking spaces available.

The council apologised for the delay in advising the outcome, confirming the petition has been actioned and the time zone had been increased to 60 minutes.
