Principal Petitioner:

TOOWOOMBA QLD 4350

Total Signatures - 1248

Sponsoring Member: Trevor Watts MP

Posting Date: 14/10/2014

Tabled Date: 14/10/2014

Responded By: Hon Jarrod Bleijie MP on 3/11/2014

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 the Premier's instruction upon the appointment of the Minister for Local Government to empower local governments to improve front line services and give local people a real say in the future direction of their community.

 

The Government should give councils a high level of autonomy and authority, and responsibility to plan, solve local problems and manage the growth of their local communities.

 

Your petitioners therefore request that once all probity and other necessary checks are completed by the CEO of the Office of Liquor Gaming Regulation, the authority is satisfied that the applicant is suitable, the democratically elected local government should have the final decision making autonomy and authority to accept or reject the location of an adult entertainment permit in their community.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to repeal all laws and amend any regulations that prevent Local Governments from having the authority to approve or restrict the location of Adult Entertainment Permits.
