Total Signatures - 1591

Sponsoring Member: Steve Wettenhall MP

Posting Date: 29/11/2011

Tabled Date: 29/11/2011

Responded By: Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk MP on 3/01/2012

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

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the Cairns Airport Draft Land Use Plan (December 2010), wherein provision is made for future expansion of the airport to include a second parallel runway and commercial precinct.  This construction, if it proceeds, will inevitably lead to:


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to:


1) Remove any provision in the Cairns Airport Draft Land Use Plan 2010 for a Movement Expansion Precinct; and

2) Restrict any site development that results in the removal of any mangrove wetland surrounding the Cairns Airport.
