Development of a car park, Weinam Creek PDA

Eligibility - Electors in the Division of Redlands

Principal Petitioner:

Lindsay Hackett
16 Cotton Tree Avenue

Total Signatures - 466

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 1/11/2018

Tabled Date: 1/11/2018

Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 3/12/2018

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

The petition of electors of the division of Redlands draws to the attention of the House the application made by Redland City Council to Economic Development Queensland concerning the development of a car park at Moores Road, Redland Bay Qld 4165 within the Weinam Creek PDA. This application is the result of many years of community consultation and review. It will provide essential infrastructure for the benefit of the people of the Southern Moreton Bay Islands, of Redland Bay, and of Redland City.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to ask Economic Development Queensland to approve the application on its merits urgently and without requiring further consultation or review. This car park is needed initially so that vehicles can be moved from the ferry terminal and bus interchange area at Weinam Creek to enable construction of the long awaited multi-level car parking station at the ferry terminal. The car park then will be repurposed to accommodate cars with boat trailers, and for local area overflow parking.
Your petitioners particularly draw the attention of the House to:

• the petition supporting the need for parking at Weinam Creek that was presented to the Legislative Assembly on 19 October 2009, signed by 1,715 people; and

• the two similar petitions on the matter presented the Redland City Council, one on 19 October 2009 signed by 1,717 people, and the other on 16 April 2011, signed by 6,151 people.
