Andrew Powell MP Member for Glass house, today encouraged community members to get involved in the conversation about Queensland’s future before consultation closes on 30 August.
“Don’t keep your ideas to yourself, make sure you add your voice to The Queensland Plan,” Mr Powell said.
‘We have already unearthed some great thoughts, ideas and perspectives in Glass House to help guide our 30-year vision, but if you haven’t taken part there is only just over one week left to respond to the six questions.
“Talking about change isn’t enough; let’s make sure we all do something about it.”
In the Glass House region, locals have made it clear that identifying community solutions to community problems, maintaining a greener focus and supporting and promoting small business are most important to them.
“Do you agree that these are the most important themes to lead Queensland into the future, or do you have other thoughts?” Mr Powell said.
“It is now even easier to answer the questions online with more choices available. You can select from options already provided by your fellow Queenslanders, or respond to a ‘quick think’ question if you are short on time.
“Alternatively, you can join with family or friends and provide a group response.
“People have come together in so many different ways, be it through a sporting club, dining room table or community group. It is terrific to see Queenslanders’ passion for our great state in action,” Mr Powell said.
Responses to The Queensland Plan are open until 30 August 2013 at www.qld.gov.au/queenslandplan.
A summit will be held in Brisbane on 9 and 10 October 2013 where the results of all the engagement from throughout Queensland will be discussed and prioritised into a clear direction for The Queensland Plan. The plan will be released in late 2013.
