Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 31/05/2018

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) have advised in writing and at a public meeting that the Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) will be conducting an investigation into a major road corridor to the west of the existing Bruce Highway. MBRC have also advised that this investigation will be completed within 12 months and will inform/impact on MBRC currently proposed major roads in the Morayfield South, Burpengary and Narangba localities.

Not all of MBRC proposed roads are currently shown on this proposed amendment, there have been recent cases where the current land owners has been informed by developers of MBRC's plans for a road going through their property. These proposed roads are not shown in the proposed amendment.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to:

  • call upon the Minister for Transport and Main Roads advise when the stated investigation will commence, what level of community engagement will occur and the expected completion date.
  • call upon the Minister for Local Government to reject MBRC's proposed major roads shown in the proposed major amendment No l to MBRC regional plan that may be impacted by the proposed TMR investigation.
  • ensure that MBRC desist from providing developers with information on "proposed roads" prior to notification of affected land owners
  • ensure all future actions by MBRC that may impact on the community be carried out with meaningful consultation/engagement.
