ULDA to face group

WEEKS of petitions and protest have payed off for Save Greenbank Inc, who will this week have the opportunity to put their concerns to ULDA CEO, Paul Eagles.

Mr Eagle's consent to meet with the action group on March 9, has arrived in the wake of a meeting between Save Greenbank Inc and the Premier and Attorney General.

Spokesperson for the Deputy Premier's office, Thea Phillips said Mike Kelly and other members of Save Greenbank Inc had a combined informal deputation with the Premier and Deputy Premier at the Community Cabinet at Caningeraba State School on Sunday, February 27.

“The Deputy Premier has subsequently undertaken to meet with this group again to discuss their submission further,” Ms Phillips said.

Chairman of Save Greenbank Inc, Mike Kelly said the action group and greater Flagstone community were looking forward to finally meeting with the ULDA boss.

“Up until now the opposition to this development has been managed and funded by a small group of committed residents intent on preserving our lifestyle and highlighting the unacceptable legislation that allows the ULDA to approve developments without any right of challenge by those constituents to oppose these developments through our courts,” Mr Kelly said.

The ULDA boss, along with the developers of the proposed high density development at Greenbank and a number of Ministers, including the Minister of Infrastructure and Planning, Stirling Hinchliffe had to date declined invitations to address the community at their weekly meetings.

Mr Kelly revealed how in a letter received in February from Mr Hinchliffe, the Minister stated “As Minister I do not have a role in deciding a development application under the Urban Land Development Authority Act, this is a matter for the Urban Land Development Authority (UDLA) to decide.”

Which is why, Mr Kelly said, the ULDA CEO coming to address the community at the meeting on Wednesday night was “massive”.

“Everything we've worked for as a community these past crazy weeks has been to fight for our right to have a say with the ULDA,” he said.

“We now have the opportunity to do that.

“We now have an opportunity to make a difference.

“What he feels after leaving that meeting will have a huge impact on the decisions he makes with his board regarding both this development and the Greater Flagstone region.”
