LNP to lift Labor's veil of secrecy on Stradbroke


An LNP Government will establish a Parliamentary Inquiry into the Palaszczuk Labor Government's secret land deal on North Stradbroke Island that is tearing the community apart and threatening pristine environment.

The secret development plan between Labor and the island's body corporate, the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation, paves the way for the development of residential, industrial and resort development on the island's bushland.

"Labor's secrecy and lack of consultation with the community is shocking," LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said.

"This secret land deal will have a major impact on the future of the island and the local residents who will be impacted most were left in the dark.

"The community has every right to be angry because the Labor Government is running roughshod over their island home.

"The LNP's Parliamentary Inquiry will get to the bottom of Labor's secret deal and hold hearings on Stradbroke Island to give the community a powerful voice.

"The LNP will remove Labor's veil of secrecy from this land deal.

"If the Palaszczuk Labor Government has nothing to hide, it should support our Parliamentary Inquiry."

The LNP's Parliamentary Inquiry will be a bi-partisan Committee that will examine:

·         The Indigenous Land Use Agreement – which will be released to the members of the Parliamentary Committee  

·         Performance of the Indigenous Land Use Agreement

·         The process and circumstances around the Temporary Planning Instrument over vast tracks of land now set for redevelopment

·         The value of the deal with the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation

The Committee's report will disclose to the public as much information as possible under a pro-disclosure principle.

LNP Member for Oodgeroo Dr Mark Robinson said there was widespread community anger over the secret deal by Labor.

"The community has a right to know the details of Labor's secret deal that potentially impacts hundreds of blocks across the whole island," Dr Robinson said.

"Labor has completely botched the transition plan for the North Stradbroke Island economy and this secrecy is making it worse.

"Jackie Trad and Labor have torn this island apart.

"This is all based on the still-secret ILUA negotiations of the past Bligh Labor Government.

"I am severely concerned pristine land on North Stradbroke Island zoned for conservation could simply be bulldozed.

"Many parcels of land are affected by bushfire, koala and protected vegetation overlays and significantly more consideration needs to be given to impacts.

"The community deserves better and the people of Queensland deserve better than Labor brokering secret deals behind their backs."
