Gold Coast Beaches

Principal Petitioner:

Shannon Willoughby
C/- Gold Coast Bulletin
PO Box 1
SOUTHPORT QLD 4215

Total Signatures - 379

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 6/08/2013

Tabled Date: 6/08/2013

Responded By: Hon David Crisafulli MP on 29/08/2013

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

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House Gold Coast beaches are the spine of the Queensland tourism industry, luring millions of visitors each year. Wild storms and king tides have severely eroded beaches, causing showers and boardwalks to collapse and leaving beachfront infrastructure on the edge of collapse. Council says it will cost $30m to repair.

 

Your petitioners therefore request the House to urge the State Government to pledge half of the $30m to make the beaches fully operational again.
