Valuer-General the DNRME for Land Valuations, to allow 'online access' to the public at all times to the historical land valuations (minimum 10 years) for all property/land in Queensland

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

WEST END QLD 4101

Total Signatures - 156

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 7/02/2019

Closing Date: 5/08/2019

Tabled Date: 20/08/2019

Responded By: Hon Dr Anthony Lynham MP on 19/09/2019

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

Queensland residents draw to the attention of the House to the "Land Valuation Act 2010" Queensland, through which the 'Annual land valuation notices' are issued by the Valuer-General in March each year to the property/land owners, for the 'New Valuation' on their land, providing an opportunity to the property/land owners to assess and if to disagree with the 'New Valuation' and make an objection to it.

From the time that the 'Annual land valuation notices' are issued till the end of June (about 4 months) the public has 'online access' to information for only the 'Current' and 'New valuation' for all properties/land for the purpose of comparison to aid in preparation to lodge an Objection to the 'New Valuation'.

The 'online access' time of about four months a year is restrictive, an unfair limitation of time to view the online information, in regard to the property/land valuations.

The 'online access' information for the property/land valuation for two years is only for the 'Current valuation'. So the 'New valuation' is restrictive and unfair to be able to form a view for the preparation of the Objection to the 'New Valuation'.

The public interest demands transparency fairness, and accountability.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to make changes:

To permit 'online access' to the public, property/land owners to the historical land valuations (minimum ten years) for all properties/land.

To permit 'online access' to the public, property/land owners at all time without limitation to four months of the year.
