Access to Coochiemudlo Island in all tidal conditions

Eligibility - Electors of the Division of Redlands

Principal Petitioner:

Russell Jackson
33 Shirley Street
COOCHIEMUDLO ISLAND QLD 4184

Total Signatures - 220

Sponsoring Member: Peter Dowling MP

Posting Date: 22/03/2011

Tabled Date: 22/03/2011

Responded By: Hon Craig Wallace MP on 28/04/2011

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

The petition of electors of the Division of Redlands draws to the attention of the House our inability to travel to and from our Island home (Coochiemudlo Island) at low tides.  This problem is getting progressively worse and is now a monthly event lasting for an average of five days.  Six years ago this was not the case.  This is a child safety/emergency matter and the right of residents to travel to and from their home.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to give access to Island residents in all tidal conditions.
