Privatisation of Forestry Plantations Queensland; the sale of freehold land as part of the privatisation

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Kel McNamara
203 Pikes Road
GLASS HOUSE MOUNTAINS QLD 4518

Total Signatures - 24

Sponsoring Member: Andrew Powell MP

Posting Date: 10/06/2010

Tabled Date: 10/06/2010

Responded By: Hon Andrew Fraser MP on 29/07/2010

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the proposed privatisation of Forestry Plantations Queensland includes the sale of freehold land which may be later approved for commercial or residential development which is unviable and impracticable given the surrounds of these areas; further that the burden of the development on the communities surrounding this land would be unreasonable.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to halt the privatisation of Forestry Plantations Queensland, or in the alternative, ensure that the Government abides by their promise to sell "the trees not the land".
