Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection, Steven Miles, will address an environment community action meeting in Maleny this Saturday.

To be held at the Maleny Neighbourhood Centre, the community action meeting will address the urgent need for strong, sensible vegetation management laws in Queensland.

“Recent scientific reports have laid bare the terrible effects of rampant tree clearing throughout Queensland,” said Labor candidate for Glass House, Brent Hampstead.

“This face to face community meeting with Minister Miles gives locals an opportunity to not only hear Labor’s plans for stronger environmental safeguards, but also voice their own concerns about the future of our state’s environment.”

Since Campbell Newman’s Environment Minister, Andrew Powell, dismantled Queensland’s vegetation management laws and unleashed the bulldozers in 2013 we have seen:
• More than 1 million hectares of bush likely destroyed
• An area twice the size of the Glass House electorate cleared each year
• An estimated 68 million animals killed between mid-2013 and mid-2015
• The Great Barrier Reef put at further risk from sediment run-off

“To add insult to injury, Andrew Powell voted against Labor’s tree clearing bill when it came to parliament in 2016,” said Mr Hampstead.

“And now Queensland finds itself with one of the worst deforestation records in the developed world.”

Community Action Meeting: 4pm, Saturday September 23
Maleny Neighbourhood Centre, Bicentenary Lane, Maleny
