As these grounds have been the host for countless events, such as The Big Day Out, Good Vibrations The Iconic Gold Coast Show and many more.
The local council is planning on shutting down these grounds to make room for a housing development
The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the proposed closure of the Parklands showgrounds on the Gold Coast to make way for a large housing project adjacent to the new University Hospital and Griffith University.
The closure will leave many groups including the Gold Coast show, the Big Day Out Festival, Indoor Sports Centre and Gold Coast Harness Racing Club without a large venue to hold community events, sport and festivals, as well as severely impacting on employment and adding further to the traffic congestion in the area.
The Save Gold Coast Parklands Show Grounds petition to Local and State Government was written by Joseph and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
