Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Wendy Wilson
596 Rode Road
CHERMSIDE QLD 4032

Total Signatures - 49

Sponsoring Member: Hon Stirling Hinchliffe MP

Posting Date: 20/09/2011

Closing Date: 20/03/2012

Tabled Date: 17/05/2012

Responded By: Hon Andrew Powell MP on 18/06/2012

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

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House that a proposal to further develop and continue to operate a Waste Transfer Station directly opposite major health facilities in Chermside is unacceptable to the community.  Waste Transfer Stations milling, crushing and grinding concrete and building wastes should not operate near hospitals, businesses, residents as they pose health risks.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to introduce legislation that stops development applications for operating Waste Transfer Stations within a safe distance from hospitals, businesses and residences and areas sensitive to the environment such as waterways.
