|Topic:||Redland2030 at "Straddie" Markets|
|Venue:||Point Lookout Community Hall|
Redlands2030 will be at the Straddie Markets at Point Lookout Community Hall (map) on 14 January to talk about Toondah Harbour and other issues of interest to Islanders.
We are keen to meet with local residents and visitors to Straddie and find out your views on Island issues such as:
- Access to the Island including implications of the proposed Toondah Harbour developments
- Tourism development and the North Stradbroke Island Transition Strategy
- Proposed World Heritage Area listing
We will be happy to answer Redlands2030 questions:
- What is Redlands2030, what do we do?
- How can people be involved in Redlands2030?
- Why is Redlands2030 so concerned about Toondah Harbour development plans?
Toondah Harbour proposed development
The Toondah Harbour Priority Development Area (PDA) declared in 2013 was supposed to fix the Toondah Harbour ferry terminal.
But it turned into a plan for 3,600 apartments on dredged Ramsar wetlands between the Harbour, the Grand View Hotel and Cassim Island.
Much of the planning by Redland City Council, the State Government and the Walker Group is being kept secret from the community.
But the Infrastructure Agreement shows that the developer will spend very little on upgrading ferry terminal facilities and car parking convenience may be reduced.
Community opinion is turning against plans for residential development at Toondah.
This has been demonstrated though a petition to Council initiated by Redlands2030.
An on-line poll in the Redland City Bulletin in 2017 found no evidence of community support for the current Toondah development plans.
More about Redlands2030
Toondah PDA remains a priority for Redlands2030 but we’re also interested in governance, development planning and community engagement at all levels of government.
Core values of Redlands2030 Inc. come from the Council’s Redlands 2030 Community Plan published in 2010.
It remains the most credible expression of Redlands community values to this time.
Redlands2030 helps the community in a number of ways:
- Publishing news on our website and Facebook
- Distributing an email newsletter
- Holding meetings (monthly), rallies and other gatherings.
Straddie residents often attend our activities on the mainland. So this year Redlands2030 is coming to Straddie!
