PARKS PLEASE

Brisbane  City Council  have  a proposal  for the following networks:
  • Stormwater
  • Transport
  • Park and open space
  • Community and recreational facilities

In 4101, Council  have failed in their provision of social infrastructure (green and open space, recreational and community facilities) for projected populations. The demand for these services is amplified by the volume school aged children living in apartments.

We  now have the opportunity to promote a range of remedies:

  • Mandate that Council spend 100% of developer infrastructure contributions in the postcode they are generated from;
  • Make publicly available and accessible the amount of developer infrastructure contributions being charged, paid and spent within a postcode area within any given financial year;
  • Implement the award winning Green Space Strategy 2015 designed by a collective of local landscape architects and community groups. This includes 7 projects over 2 years.
  • Upgrade Davies Park as per the Master planning exercise Council conducted in 2009-2010;
  • Implement the Riverside Masterplan 2008.
  • Reinstate the provision of a Ferry Terminal (formerly Victoria Street) to service high density areas off Montague Road
We urge you to make a submission by Friday 21 July 2017.
We have prepared a pro-forma submission letter for you to use.  It needs to be signed and for you to provide your name and address.  Note that you can request that these details are withheld from any public display.
