Preferences of 125 submissions determine planning for Flagstone

Last Updated on 12 March 2012

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.

 

Greater Flagstone - what is your vision?

Last Updated on 12 March 2012

Flagstone_UDA.wmfGreater Flagstone - what is your vision?

An area criss-crossed by roads - all needing to be upgraded and with extra lanes?

An area where increased human settlement of affordable housing - constructed before adequate wildlife and biodiversity studies are completed by impartial consultants?

An area already being cleared without adequate erosion and sediment controls in place

An area not contained within one connected geographical space

An area where the concept of identified growth areas is include within the UDA Urban Development Area [ renamed in last SEQRP from INVESTIGATION AREAS to identified growth areas - a misleading use of language and terminolgy for those new to the area and SEQRP documents]

 OR DO YOU WANT AN AREA WHICH DEMONSTRATES THE ON GROUND PRINCIPLES OF

ECOLOGICAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT?

Although many of us want to have better roads all the road changes will mean more tree clearing - meaning loss of habitat and other services provided by trees.

Have you seen Mt Lindesay Highway recently [ at least 3 koalas were seen in area by the wildlife spotters] ? This is an example of what is to come .

Following roads are listed in ULDA documents Teviot Rd (Middle Rd  -  Kilmoylar Rd  •Homestead Dr ( to  Teviot Rd)  •Cusack lane ( Teviot Rd -  Johanna St) •Johanna ( Cusack Lane -  Mt Lindesay Hway •Camp Cable Rd ( Mt Lindesay  - Waterford-Tamborine Rd) •Crowson Lane ( Greenbank - Mt Lindesay Highway) •Greenbank Rd ( Crowson Lane – Mt Lindesay Hway) •Stoney Camp Rd ( Teviot Rd – Mt Lindesay Highway) •Mt Lindesay Highway  (Johanna St  to Logan Motorway) •Chambers flat Rd ( Chambers Flat to Waterford-Tamborine Rd)  •Goodna Rd – Springfield Greeenbank Arterial – Middle Rd.

Where is Greater Flagstone Urban Development Area?

Last Updated on 12 March 2012

greater-flagstone-uda The major land mass for Greater Flagstone is west of the interstate railway line. Click on image to open ULDA map file.

Many people do not asociate Greenbank and North Maclean with an urban footprint tagged with Flagstone. Until now Flagstone has not even been a suburb of Logan but part of the suburb of  Jimboomba. The Flagstone estate has been an area with small acreage development for many years with both primary and secondary schools within the area.

The use of creeks and rivers as the boundary line - cutting some proprties into two - is cause for concern since there are policies for protecting riparian corridors - but policies without teeth in legislation offer no protection.

To have such disparate areas proposed as a model city for development does not match my vision - or community vision expressed at WOSPP. Teviot Road and Cusack Lane are major access roads used by present population. High density development west of rail line will mean multiple crossing across the rail line to access Teviot Road.

There are many documents on ULDA website to read to make an informed submission. EDO workshops will be held to help you with submissions.
