WE THE COMMUNITY OF THE GOLD COAST CALL UPON THE HON CAMERON DICK MP, Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning as the Qld State Governments representative to the Spit Master Plan negotiations
1. TO REMOVE ANY DISCUSSION OR RECOMMENDATIONS TO HAVE THE GOLD COAST TRAWLER FLEET REMOVED , RELOCATED OR REPLACED DURING SPIT MASTER PLAN DISCUSSIONS.
The Gold Coast Trawler Fleet and their location is not only classed as a tourist attraction to many families who repeatedly visit the gold coast every year but is an Iconic example of the way many Queenslander's lived and procured their fresh sea food from their local area's since before the 1950's.
The Fleet has and continues to provide the community of the gold coast, fresh and cheaply bought seafood caught in our local waters with no fear of it's quality and without the need to deal with middle men who raise prices to a level that many families today can not afford to have seafood at Christmas.
To remove this fleet or alter its way of operation would be paramount to destroying a natural heritage of not only those people of the gold coast by enjoying the way our fathers and grandfathers had always sought to give luxury to their families but would deny future generations the knowledge and involvement of the past practices of our state.
2. TO PROVIDE THE GOLD COAST TRAWLER FLEET A 50 YEAR LEASE WITHOUT CONDITION FOR THE USE OF THE LAND AND FACILITIES CURRENTLY USED.
The Trawler Fleet's location has been under threat for many years, not by developers but by those who believe they deserve a life style that mimics over seas examples and have failed to recognize that our heritage is more important than american crafted boardwalks and restaurants.
This kind of Yuppyism is not iconic to Queensland or Australia, it is a fake concept that takes away who we are and how we live.
The members of the Trawler Fleet have for many years despite the hardships of gaining a living from the sea provided to the community protection from fear of contaminated seafood and done so at a cost to themselves and deserve to be in comfort that they shall have the opportunity to continue that support to the community without fear to their way of life.
3. TO REMOVE ANY AND ALL MEMBERS OF SAVE OUR BROADWATER, SAVE OUR SPIT AND MAIN BEACH ASSOCIATION FROM ANY FURTHER INTERACTION WITH THE SPIT MASTER PLAN NEGOTIATIONS.
These people raised the idea of removing the trawlers and replacing them during the 2016 council elections.
The public outcry against them was so strong that they publicly reversed their decision and made public assurances that they would never raise the matter again.
Their current use of the negotiations to move in secret to restore their own personal plans in contravention of their commitment to the public has shown that they are not representatives of the public, they are acting for their own personal gain and therefore must not be considered at any time as presenting the wishes of the community.
