Development of 2236 Beaudesert Rd and neighbouring area

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Ann Smallegange
5 Dalwood Street

Total Signatures - 70

Sponsoring Member: Duncan Pegg MP

Posting Date: 23/08/2016

Closing Date: 8/09/2016

Tabled Date: 13/09/2016

Responded By: Hon Jackie Trad MP on 13/10/2016

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

Queensland Residents draw to the attention of the House that a development proposal for 2236 Beaudesert Rd for approximately 123 townhouses and apartments also has a ring road proposed to pass through existing parkland and stormwater overland flow area near the western corner of Palatine and Parklands Streets, Calamvale. Developments of density higher than low-density residential (which is approx. 19 dwellings per hectare) have also been proposed for 2222 Beaudesert Rd.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to:

·         reduce the density on the land at 2236, 2222 and 2204 Beaudesert Rd to 19 dwellings per hectare (ie that of low-density residential housing), and also help in reducing traffic and parking problems in the local area;

·         retain vegetation in the overland flow area from the dam south of the Calamvale Central Shopping Centre through to the western junction of Parklands and Palatine Streets, Calamvale,

·         not allow a road to be constructed along the line of this waterway;

·         not allow a road to be constructed through existing parkland at 34 and 34A Palatine St, Calamvale, and 11 Monford Place (Monford Place Park) Calamvale;

·         retain Significant Vegetation (as defined by the Brisbane City Council) on 2204, 2222 and 2236 Beaudesert Rd; and

·         not allow the aquifer existing in the area roughly bounded by Beaudesert Rd, Compton Rd, Gowan Rd and Illaweena St to be breached.
