The ULDA’s current proposed Development Scheme for Greater Flagstone has used the preferred option 1 (identified from Logan City Council consultation for LOGAN CITY COUNCIL STRUCTURE PLAN, November 2009) as the basis for preparing its current plan for Greater Flagstone.

The Logan City Council presented 3 planning options for Greater Flagstone in November 2009. Logan City Council’s Consultation Report ( 2010) for this process states that the Council received feedback from a total of 125 submitters - of which 100 were private submitters.

In 2006 there were approximately 20 325 people living in Flagstone, Greenbank, New Beith, Munruben and North Maclean. This means that the submissions received represented approximately 0.5 % or 0.6 %.Therefore Logan City Council’s preferred Option 1 (used by the ULDA) is not representative of the opinions of the majority of the community.

It is ludicrous to think that such a significant planning process for Greater Flagstone by the ULDA is based on only the preferences of 125 submitters .

Logan City Council provided 3 development options, the “pros and cons of each scenario were provided with all three options receiving similar preference”. Therefore Logan City Council’s preferred Option 1 (used by the ULDA) is not representative of the opinions of the majority of the community.

In the 3 Options proposed for Greater Flagstone by Logan City Council, the land uses for Greenbank Central , Greenbank East and North Maclean were almost identical in all 3 Options. Options 1 and 2 were identical and Option 3 had no industry located at Greenbank East .

Consequently the community has NEVER been given the democratic right to reject or seek alternatives for North Maclean , Greenbank Central or Greenbank East .

If you care about the future of North Maclean , Greenbank Central or Greenbank East, make a submission to ULDA Greater Flagstone UDA by May 20 to have your input considered. There will be little point in complaining in the future.

Koalas, quolls, powerful owls, glossy black cockatoos all use the habitat in these areas.
