Social Housing Proposal in Palm Cove Far North Queensland

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Kate Dewar
5 Trivia Street
Palm Cove Qld 4879

Total Signatures - 226

Sponsoring Member: Rosemary Menkens MP

Posting Date: 23/04/2010

Closing Date: 15/09/2010

Tabled Date: 16/09/2010

Responded By: Hon Karen Struthers MP on 15/10/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland Citizens draws to the attention of the House: of Queensland, that they oppose the construction of a high density, three story housing project on the corner of Harpa and Oliva Streets, Palm Cove. The project is inconsistent with the tourist amenity of the beach side village.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to halt the current housing proposal for Palm Cove and relocate the project to an area of demonstrated need, which also has appropriate infrastructure for the target population.
