Bulk water charges in Moreton Bay Region

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Chris Kelly
PO Box 196
LAWNTON QLD 4501

Total Signatures - 202

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 22/05/2015

Closing Date: 3/06/2015

Tabled Date: 4/06/2015

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 3/07/2015

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that water prices and rates have increased over $500 in the last three years in Moreton Bay Region. In response, the Queensland Competition Authority handed down a report on April 1 recommending a freeze in bulk water charges for  Moreton Bay Region instead of a $49/year increase. The State Government has failed to respond to this report.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure that the State Government urgently adopts the recommendation to freeze Moreton Bay Region bulk water prices on July 1, 2015 to avoid residents suffering a further cost increase.
