Submitted by webmaster on Sat, 31/03/2012 - 7:48pm

How will you address Council’s failure to follow best practice community consultation (i.e. as per IAP2 fully developed model attached – and therefore ensure that respect for neighbourhood plans is maintained (rather than having non-consultative changes such as “Corinda as a community hub” rather than Sherwood, 5-storeys where 3-storeys were planned, the Sherwood Bus Depot, and the Nosworthy Park bikeway)?

Oxley Road to Nowhere

Submitted by Nicole Johnston on Tue, 07/02/2012 - 12:03pm

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has today confirmed secret plans to upgrade Oxley Road to four lanes over the next 11 to 20 years as part of Brisbane’s Long Term Infrastructure Plan 2012 – 2031.


Councillor Johnston said that Council’s plan, to be debated at today’s meeting, came without any consultation with local residents.


“Making Oxley Road four lanes without addressing the single lane choke point at the Walter Taylor Bridge is appalling planning. It will create a road to nowhere and cause further congestion and delay for residents,” Councillor Johnston said.
