Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Mario Torrisi
59 Davidson Street

Total Signatures - 2555

Sponsoring Member: Andrew Cripps MP

Posting Date: 16/02/2017

Tabled Date: 16/02/2017

Responded By: Hon Dr Steven Miles MP on 7/03/2017

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

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the multiple adverse impacts, such as smell, noise, mess and health concerns on the community of Ingham, including adjacent schools, businesses, community organisations and the environment, of the flying fox colony occupying the Keith Payne VC Botanical Gardens.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to direct the Minister for the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection to take responsibility for dispersing the flying fox colony occupying the Keith Payne VC Botanical Gardens in Ingham to ensure the safety and well-being of the local community and prevent further damage to the trees.
