Total Signatures - 140

Sponsoring Member: Mark Boothman MP

Posting Date: 9/01/2017

Closing Date: 13/02/2017

Tabled Date: 14/02/2017

Responded By: Hon Jackie Trad MP on 10/03/2017

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House a call to review the urban footprint in the surrounding region of Sharton Avenue, Buccan Road and Wilson Road, Buccan.


Residents feel this area has limited environmental value and has suitable topographical terrain for urban development.


Your petitioners therefore request that due to Buccan's location being surrounded by large urban developments such as Woodlands, Bahrs Scrub and, further to the south, Yarrabilba, residents feel their land should be included in the urban footprint.
