Total Signatures - 11

Sponsoring Member: Geoff Wilson MP

Tabled Date: 15/02/2012

Responded By: Hon David Crisafulli MP on 8/06/2012

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

The petition of Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the desire for the Hills District (Arana Hills, Everton Hills and Ferny Hills) and Bunya to transfer from the jurisdiction of Moreton Bay Regional Council and instead become part of the Brisbane City Council.

 

We present the following reasons:

 

1)    the geographic location of the Hills District to adjacent Brisbane suburbs; 

2)    Hills District residents display a much greater affinity and community-of-interest with Brisbane than Moreton Bay region; and

3)    facilities such as sport/recreation/shopping/schools are already shared between Hills District and Brisbane residents.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to refer our request to the Local Government Boundaries Commissioner for examination and investigation.
