Powers of ULDA Urban Land Development Authority are to be replaced by MEDQ - a corporation solely designated to facilitate economic development. There will be a new Minister for Economic Development Queensland. Former UDAs will be called PDAs Priority Development Areas and few local councils have had control returned - certainly not Logan with Yarrabilba and Greater Flagstone.
Teviot Downs at Greenbank is another development considered as a future stage of Greater Flagstone. The developer currently is waiting for a decision for the second relodged application - first withdrawn. Teviot Downs submitted DEV2012/284 on 15 May 2012; for 1017 residential lots, 1 community lot, 1 utility installation lot, 8 balance lots, a new road & a park. Notice of application commenced on 26th July 2012, this provided the community 20 business days to lodge submissions. The submission period ceased 3rd Sept 2012; this provided the 15th Oct 2012 being the 40 business days for determination of the application by the ULDA.
Save Greenbank suggests residents contact their local member and other government minsters, to remind them of their pre election promises/statements to this community. That the community be consulted and involved in appropriate development, and for existing communities (as per 4BC interview Campbell Newman & Mike Kelly-SG 26th Mar 2012). Save Greenbank believes that the decision has been delayed to date, to allow the current application to be determined utilising the new legislation which commenced 12th Dec 2012.
Lets see what happens!!
One of LACA's major concerns is that there have been no significant flora and fauna studies done for these areas and the inevitable loss of habitat will impact negatively on wildlife currently living there. Business as usual development is not a creative solution. LACA works with and supports all community groups in region to obtain better environmental outcomes.
