Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Marie Watson
PO Box 7235

Total Signatures - 1583

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 5/03/2018

Closing Date: 20/03/2018

Tabled Date: 21/03/2018

Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 20/04/2018

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the negative impact on lifestyle, specifically traffic congestion and community safety that will occur if the Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) Planning Scheme - Major Amendment 1 - Warner Investigation Area is adopted.

The planning scheme should be rejected because of the effects of extreme traffic congestion and inadequate road infrastructure based on current vehicle movement. South Pine Road (Brendale/Albany Creek), Eatons Crossing Road (Eatons Hill/Warner) and North Road (Warner). Additional high density housing will increase the congestion and associated traffic problems.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to -

  1. Cause the Minister for Transport and Main Roads (with reference to the Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning) to urgently review the MBRC Planning Scheme - Amendment 1 - Warner Investigation Area
  2. Cause the MBRC to review and redesign the Warner Investigation Area Planning Scheme to a Medium to Low density development. By building fewer buildings we believe that the pressure on road usage would be minimised.
  3. Require that any future proposed development within the Warner Investigation Area is subject to a full and transparent community engagement process which specifically addresses community concerns regarding to traffic and road safety.
  4. Engage (or require MBRC) independent, appropriately qualified professionals to review all traffic/transport impacts of the MBRC - Amendment 1 for the Warner Investigation Area and to share those findings publically.
