Stop the sale of Birkdale Commonwealth land for 400 houses.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

The Mayor on behalf of Redland City Council has been negotiating with the Commonwealth Government for the purchase of this land for community use such as educational facilities, recreation uses, environmental corridors in good faith for the last three and a half years. Council has been blindsided by this sudden decision announced in the 2018 Budget Papers that ACMA is proposing to sell this land for 400 houses under the guise of “reducing pressure on housing affordability”. We request that this decision be rescinded and that negotiations for Council to acquire this land without going to open market continue.
