Eligibility - Queensland residents

Tabled Date: 13/02/2008

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The Petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that the signatories to this petition do not want the Maroochy Shire Council's new proposed landfill site at Ferntree Creek Road Kulangoor, north of Nambour, to be approved by the State Government. The proposed landfill site is currently zoned Regional Landscape and Rural Production Area as per the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2005-26. We acknowledge that the Government may not yet have received the Council's Submission. Your petitioners therefore request the House to ensure that when the application for this proposed site is submitted to the Government that it be thoroughly scrutinised and rejected so that the Government ensures that the current permitted land uses of this site remain unchanged.
