Labor's trigger mapping mess letting everyone down

Published: Comments:
Political Queensland Government


Queensland's new flora survey trigger maps designed to protect threatened or endangered plants have been exposed as error ridden and are creating considerable frustration and angst for landholders throughout the state*.

LNP Shadow Minister for the Environment David Crisafulli said allowing defective maps to be rolled out put unnecessary bureaucratic and financial obligations on landholders.

"These farcical trigger maps on landmarks like The Gabba, Suncorp Stadium and Sunshine Coast canals makes a mockery of a system designed to protect our 'high-risk' and endangered flora," Mr Crisafulli said.

"By having maps not properly assessed by the Government and then forcing them on landholders destroys confidence in the whole system.

"It again shows these laws were based on politics, not science.

"Landholders are now having to spend thousands of dollars on consultants to get these trigger maps on their land removed, yet the government is just dropping them willy-nilly."

"We need mapping that gets the balance right between the environment and landholders, so the community can have confidence in the system.

"It's time for Minister Enoch to come out and take responsibility for this train wreck rather than just relying on landholders to fix her incompetency.

"This mapping is the worst of both worlds and cannot be allowed to remain unchanged."

"Labor needs to understand that government incompetence has real-world implications well beyond George Street.

"The LNP understands how bad science and green ideology can hurt rural and regional Queensland".
