Since 1996, the community at North Maclean and Munruben has never been consulted about the suitability of industry in a rural residential area. There has been no social impact assessment and there is no social licence.
Residents surrounding the proposed industrial precinct rely solely on water from their rainwater tanks for their drinking and cooking. Air pollution from industrial activities, heavy vehicle emissions and dust from trucks will settle on residents’ house roofs and gutters, resulting in the contamination of their drinking water. Polluted water will impact adversely on residents’ health. Air pollution is likely to be carried by the wind much further than the immediate vicinity of the North Maclean Enterprise Precinct and its road corridors. Stormwater pollution from the proposed development will also enter the waterways that traverse the proposed site, which in turn will flow into Logan River and Moreton Bay, with negative impacts on water quality, aquatic and marine life. This impact has never been assessed.
There has been no consideration of the physical, social and emotional impacts on the community. There are already residents suffering from the psychological effects of worrying what will become of their health and well-being if industry appears on their doorstep.
Industry is incompatible with an established rural residential community.
