NO DECISION YET for 820 Greenbank Rd .
The decision timeline has been extended by 15-20 days apparently because the applicants have agreed to this.
This gives our community more time to lobby and get organized. This is a small win but an important one which has come about as a result of successflly campaigning on behalf of the community.
Please see next article for ideas to help you MAKE YOUR OWN SUBMISSION
This comes despite the verbal assertion by state government planning assessment officer is that a
decision will be made on or before Wednesday 27 January 2016.
Community is being denied a formal consultation process but despite this we can - and should - communicate our concerns to state and federal government!!

Comments close 23 October 2015
ADD YOUR VOICE
It is disappointing that Logan citizens were denied an opportunity to attend a local workshop with planners to gain better understanding of what the discussion paper means and its implications for future planning in Queensland.
Logan and Albert Conservation Association LACA exec members have shared concerns with the Environmental Defenders Office Qld EDQ, Queensland Conservation Council QCC, Friends of South-east Queensland group FOSEQ and Redlands 2030 who have each put together some very detailed and substantial documents for which we can also endorse support.
To illustrate three issues for protection Greenspace, Koala Habitat and Coastal Protection are missing from Planning Bills.

The words of Edward Burke "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" serve to remind us that silence on an issue is construed as its support. When economic gain surpasses and overrides significant social and planetary wellbeing those concerned must raise their voices.
BREC advises us of the following concerns:
The Greenspace provisions and green fauna infrastructure have been left out of the initial bill, provision of the ranges of parklands, trails, open space, and bushland, are largely no longer defined or compulsory, and six different programs covering a wider range of greenspace including recreation reserves, inter urban breaks and National Reserve System largely no longer exist. The future greenspace of Queensland will have to be subsidised by Ratepayers as the UDIA Policy is "no more contributions".
New Residential Infrastructure capping gaps in some cities will also have to be subsidised by Ratepayers. This fast track legislation trashing of decades of integrated interagency planning, environmental advice and public consultation is a developers dream he said . "This is a return to the 1980s Planning."
