Support stopping the sale of land proposed for Calliope State High School

Responded By: Hon John-Paul Langbroek MP on 18/06/2013

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

The petition of the electors of the Division of Gladstone draws to the attention of the House that the State Government of Queensland is selling parcel of land that has been put aside as the proposed site for a high school in Calliope, 55 Don Cameron Drive, Lot 126, CTN 1493, Parish Stowe, an area of 14.7 hectares, Zone Community Use.  This is the only remaining parcel of land in the area left for a proposed high school as the Labor Government in 2008 sold the other proposed site. It would have adverse affects on our community and our future generations to sell this parcel of land for residential development. With the forecast population growth of this area over the next few years, the lack of other available parcels of land and the hours our local children spend each day on a bus to get to school. We the undersigned support stopping the sale of this parcel of land, 55 Don Cameron Drive, Lot 126, Calliope, CTN 1493, Parish Stowe.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to ensure that this land is retained as Government Land and not sold, to ensure the future of our community and the future education of our children.
