De-amalgamation of Warwick Shire

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Mary Rofe
6 Wattle Court
STANTHORPE QLD 4380

Total Signatures - 6

Sponsoring Member: Lawrence Springborg MP

Posting Date: 21/08/2012

Closing Date: 28/08/2012

Tabled Date: 11/09/2012

Responded By: Hon David Crisafulli MP on 10/10/2012

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the Warwick Shire was forcibly amalgamated with the Stanthorpe Shire in 2008 against the wishes of the majority of electors in both shires. Your petitioners acknowledge that any costs associated with de-amalgamation will be the responsibility of the de-amalgamating council, not the remaining council, should a de-amalgamation occur.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ask the Minister for Local Government to refer our request to de-amalgamate Warwick Shire to the Queensland Boundaries Commissioner for review and analysis.
