Land for new aquatic centre

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Responded By: Hon Kate Jones MP on 13/08/2015

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 need for an indoor aquatic centre for the communities of Maleny and the broader Blackall Range. The existing facility at the Maleny State School is unable to accommodate the need for access of the various communities. An indoor facility would allow for all year round access to the three primary and one high school to run effective swimming programs, competitive swimmers and recreational swimmers of all ages. After extensive investigation the Sunshine Coast Regional Council has determined that Maleny State School remains the ideal location for such an indoor aquatic centre.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to prioritise the transfer of land at Maleny State School either as freehold or as trust or lease from the State to the Sunshine Coast Regional Council as a first step in delivering the new indoor aquatic centre.
