Urgent - TPA meeting tonight

Submitted by TPA Editor on Wed, 19/08/2015 - 2:12pm


Dear TPA member

A last minute reminder the make sure you don’t miss tonight’s meeting.

Hear first-hand a personal experience from a Teneriffe resident who has been impacted by a decision of the BCC which has caused a couple years of stress and financial hardship.

You will be told how a meeting between six long term Teneriffe residents and the BCC could have avoided all of this but the BCC chose to not consult directly with them.

Healthy Waterways

Submitted by Ben Pritchard on Mon, 27/07/2015 - 10:47am

Healthy Waterways, a quasi-governmental organisation (QUANGO), has issued the attached email survey requesting feedback from anyone who uses, enjoys or has an opinion about the health and usefulness of the waterways in Southeast Queensland.

We will discuss at the August meeting whether TPA should make a response to the submission, but if anyone wished to complete the survey in their own capacity and identity, please follow the link in the attachment.

Thank you to Stephen Harper for bringing the survey to the attention of TPA.

Dogs on cross river ferries

Submitted by Ben Pritchard on Fri, 10/07/2015 - 2:44pm

At the Teneriffe Festival on Saturday 4 July, the most popular comment posted on the TPA comments board was a request/suggestion that dogs should be permitted to travel, with their owners, on the cross river ferry from Bulimba to Teneriffe.

I have asked Translink to consider making a (small) change to its network-wide ban on animals, except guide dogs, travelling on public transport. The email reply - copied below -  says that the request will be referred to the appropriate committee of Translink (State Government) for consideration.


Telstra mobile antennae

Submitted by Ben Pritchard on Thu, 09/07/2015 - 12:23pm

I have been sent a letter of notification from Telstra, which advises the community of plans to install new antennae on Goldsborough Place, 39 Vernon Terrace. The letter asks for community feedback to be sent to the company by 27 July 2015. We will discuss this at the July meeting - Wednesday 15th, 7:00pm - so if you have comments or interest in this matter, please come along to the meeting on Wednesday.

The attached photomontage shows how the antennae will look from the Vernon Terrace side of the site. Similar antennae are proposed for the river elevation of the building.
