Responded By: Hon Stirling Hinchliffe MP on 4/10/2016

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House a route proposal for light rail that would follow the Gold Coast Highway through Palm Beach. There has been very limited community consultation by Gold Coast City Council with the people of Palm Beach/Currumbin who will be directly affected by this proposed route. Parking both sides of the highway would be removed and there would be a negative impact upon all those who live along or near the Gold Coast Highway as well as many of the now thriving local small businesses.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure there will be thorough community consultation with residents who live in this location before any decision to proceed with light rail in Palm Beach.
