Were YOU EVER consulted about North Maclean Enterprise Precinct?

Last Updated on 26 November 2015

Documentation relating to North Maclean Enterprise Precinct claims there has been "extensive" community consultation.

Can you provide a comment about level of opportunity for community consultation you had for

North Maclean? It has been a difficult process to follow with multiple name changes. Who would think that Greater Flagstone included North Maclean?

It is at least 8 kilometres away and shares no adjacent suburb boundary or even same POSTCODE? 

A "North Maclean" search of this website for Logan and Albert Conservation Association Inc LACA will produce many articles which together reveal that community has had issues with level of consultation available.

Residents fight for wildlife Industrial estate planned at North Maclean

Residents fight for wildlife Industrial estate planned at North Maclean

NORTH Maclean residents are fighting tooth and nail to protect vulnerable native flora and fauna from an industrial development.

The North Maclean Enterprise Precinct sits on a 117 hectare site on the corner of Crowson Lane and the Mt Lindesay Highway. The applicant proposes to clear-fell the whole site including small areas of the federally endan-gered melaleuca irbyana.
Logan and Albert Conservation Association president and Stanley Court resident Anne Page said the site was valuable habitat for wildlife including the endangered spotted-tail quoll, and vulnerable koala.
The proposal is currently seeking approval under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, with invitations to comment closing on March 9.
Ms Page said the report submitted for assessment was lacking in critical information, including a detailed species survey. "There are other species that are vulnerable in Queensland that won't get a look-in during this consultation," she said.
The North Maclean site was first ear-marked for development by Beaudesert Shire Council in 1996, however by 2007 the council had changed its mind. 
Ms Page said the project had changed names several times since and most of the community was unaware that the area was added to the Greater Flagstone Development Area in 2010.
"We really must emphasise the community has never been given the right to say no to this, ever," she said. "No-one's ever asked us, do you want this huge area of industrial development in the middle of a rural residential area?"

Endangered species future in doubt at North Maclean?

Have YOU been consulted?   Comments close 9 March 2015

  1. Animals and plant species are threatened by proposed clearing of 117 hectares

    Koalas, spotted tailed quolls, grey headed flying foxes, glossy black cockatoos, wallum froglet are known to be using / living in the extant habitat within the former dairy farm having road frontage along Mt Lindesay and Crowson Lane.

  2. Wetland and waterways occur on the property as does the federally endangered ecological community known as Swamp Tea-tree forest with signature Melaleuca Irbyana species. Regional ecosystem descriptions 12.3.11 of concern and 12.9-10.12 endangered are present. Glossy black cockatoos or Glossies in QLD eat the seeds of only two allocasuarina trees:Allocasuarina littoralis andA. torulosa. Having a very restricted diet the Glossy Black Cockatoo is susceptible to habitat loss through land clearing,logging, agriculture and urban development. A. littoralis is present and clearing is proposed – without mitigation. 

  3. Community has not been “extensively” consulted as claimed
