Stop multiple charges to a single property owner under the Emergency Management levy

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Stephen Andrew
PO Box 56

Total Signatures - 212

Sponsoring Member: Mr Steve Andrew MP

Posting Date: 20/08/2019

Tabled Date: 20/08/2019

Responded By: Hon Craig Crawford MP on 19/09/2019

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the Queensland Government has recently changed the rules on how they charge for Emergency Management Levy. Property owners are now charged a levy on every parcel of land even if the parcel is only a few square metres. This means some property owners are paying up to ten times the Emergency Management Levy.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to change the regulations relating to section 108 of the Fire and Emergency Services Act 1990 to restore status quo being that multiple titles having single use are only subject to one levy.
