Vote for our beaches

While the majority of the beachgoers pictured in the Gold Coast Bulletin’s article today said that they were happy with the way the Campbell Government has gone about its business and that Campbell Newman has done a good job to get Queensland back on track. I bet there would have been a different response if those very beachgoers who were enjoying Burleigh Beach actually new that the Campbell Government to date has done nothing for Gold Coast beaches.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane.

The Campbell Government repealed the half-good-job of the previous government with ripping its money hungry teeth right through the Queensland Coastal Plan.

Changed ‘definitions’ and ‘types of development’ in the Plan to allow the destruction of dunes to make way for unsustainable pathways and other ‘removable/ temporary’ structures.

Remember the ongoing argument between Stuckey MP and Mayor Tate in the wake of ex TC Oswald due to no State assistance to help the City of Gold Coast should I dare to say, ‘fix Gold Coast’s beaches’.

Attempted to remove references to sea level rise from local government planning policies and documents to open more coastal areas for unsustainable development.

The list goes on… o, and how could I forget the open-ended development application process for the most ridiculous, unsustainable, beach-killing cruise ship terminal planned for Wave Break Island.

Believe me, trust me and follow me by NOT voting for LNP. Vote for a Government that will develop and drive the right policies for the good of our beaches, our culture, our economy and our community.
