Total Signatures - 1104

Posting Date: 27/08/2014

Closing Date: 3/10/2014

Tabled Date: 14/10/2014

Responded By: Hon Jeff Seeney MP on 4/11/2014

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the brief period of time residents have to respond to the Kurilpa Riverfront Renewal Draft Master Plan (the Plan).

This plan represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop for the people of Brisbane the last substantial inner-city land bank adjacent to the river.  The Plan has been developed in conjunction with a select number of developers over the past 10 months and to the exclusion of the local West End community and the wider Brisbane community.

The Plan is to oversee the development of the 25 hectare Kurilpa precinct over the next 15 years. However, the local West End and South Brisbane community along with the wider Brisbane community have been given a consultation period of only 30 business days.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to call on the Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning to extend the consultation period for the Kurilpa Riverfront Renewal Draft Master Plan to the end of June 2015 to allow equal consideration by the people of Brisbane and to publicly release all of the planning studies, information and documentation provided to developers.
