- Honourable Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
Thank you to everyone for signing this petition and your comments. It has all been put together with our paper petition and will be going to parliament next week. Our Facebook page will keep you updated with how it goes.
The Petition of the electors of the Division of Gladstone draws to the attention of the House:
That the State Government of Queensland is selling a parcel of land that has been put aside as the proposed site for a High School in Calliope, 55 Don Cameron Drive, Lot 126, CTN 1493, Parish STOWE, an area of 14.7 Hectares, Zoned COMMUNITY USE.
This is the only remaining parcel of land in the area left for a proposed high school as the Labour Government in 2008 sold the other proposed site.
It would have adverse affects on our community and our future generations to sell this parcel of land for residential development, particularly with the forecast population growth of this area over the next few years, the lack of other available parcels of land and the hours our local children spend each day on a bus to get to school.
We, the undersigned, support stopping the sale of this parcel of land, 55 Don Cameron Drive, Lot 126, Calliope, CTN 1493, Parish STOWE.
Your petitioners therefore request the House to ensure that this land is retained as Government Land and not sold, to ensure the future of our community and the future education of our children.
The Don't sell Calliope High School Land petition to Honourable Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland was written by Lynda Ninness and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
