Creation of a National Park on North Stradbroke Island - Your thoughts

Last Updated on Monday, 12 March 2012 14:20

Satellite_Image_southern_Moreton_BayMark Robinson State LNP member for Cleveland (Queensland) has provided you an opportunity to highlight your support for the creation of a National Park on North Stradbroke Island.  The survey does seem to indicate there is a lack of interest in the National Park idea and more interest in allowing mining to continue.

QCC Queensland Conservation Council and  LACA Logan and Albert Conservation Association believe sandmining must stop. We believe everyone in Queensland should let the member know how they feel and please also send a strong message that we desire 80% of the island in National Park and we desire it sooner rather than later. Sand Mining must stop now!  Sand left after mineral processing should be used for rehabilitation and not sold off.

Free postage is included on printed survey.

The survey asks you to indicate your level of agreement to the following questions / statements

[Strongly agree  -  Agree   -  Undecided   -  Disagree -   Strongly Disagree]

The premier's plan to stop sandmining by 2027 is a good plan

Continue to read the questions on line

Sandmining should be stopped earlier than 2027

Sandmining should be allowed to continue as long as land is properly rehabilitated

Sandmining should be allowed to continue as long as high value koala land is not destroyed

Sandmining should be allowed to continue in old-growth forest areas

The use of excess sand after mining to provide cheap sand and jobs in the construction industry of South East Queensland is a good thing

The premier's plan to turn Straddie into 80% National Park is a good plan

A plan that provides 50% National Park and allows mixed economic activity and conservation on the remaining 30% is a good alternative plan

The indigenous people are fairly compensated for their native title claim in the premier's plan

The premier's plan for indigenous groups to co-manage the National Park is a good step

The direct and indirect job losses resulting from stopping sandmining will cause economic problems for the island

The premier's plan to create 400 eco-tourism jobs to replace  job losses is believable

The premier's eco-tourism plan will generate sufficient income to replace the economic from closing sandmining 

Prior to the premier's announcement I was sufficiently consulted about her decision

IN SUMMARY, I support the premier's overall plan for the island
