TOONDAH ACTION GROUP
TAG – Call to ACTION
To all Members (and friends) of the Toondah Action Group (TAG)
This Wednesday morning our Council will consider the community petition to stop the Toondah PDA. That is the time to rally (from 9am) and exercise our democratic rights to inform Council what we think about their stance on Toondah.
This action was foreshadowed last week and we asked TAG members to “pencil in the date, place and time so we can show Councillors the level of community anxiety and opposition to the Toondah scheme.
The council is considering what can only be described as a feeble report on the petition. The Report has been complied by the Redlands Investment Corporation and does no justice to the matters at hand or for the Councillors supposedly considering a community petition, a petition signed by over 1400 people.
The stop Toondah rally will be on Wednesday….7th March 2018.
When: 9- 9:30 am (in advance of the actual meeting)
Where: In front of the Redland City Council Chambers, in Bloomfield Street Cleveland
What to bring: a pair of Gum boots or walking boots (or even old shoes) to wave and show we want to give Walker’s the BOOT (a good photo shoot).
Who should attend: Any one concerned about the 3600 apartments planned for Toondah Harbour, the delayed upgrade of the port facilities, the impacts on the Ramsar area and other environmental values, the traffic and congestion in Cleveland and impacts on the existing CBD and so much more.
Further the deceitful consultation and the poor planning that underpins the current development scheme should be dealt with now to re-start the planning process in a modern and transparent way. The Toondah Development has been poorly planned since its inception but the Report to Council clearly shows the secrecy and commercial commercial-in-confidence arrangements have been used to keep the community in the dark on so many aspects of the scheme.
Color, noise and movement is the order of the day from 9am until 9:30am. Those wanting to witness the performance of Councillors should then proceed to the Council Chambers. Other members of TAG may adjourn to Bloomfield Park for a debrief, conversation and a coffee.
Help stop the rort, and fix the port!
Come along Wednesday for 30 minutes or so! Make a stand our Councillors can’t ignore.
