New Council...

Eric is presently canvassing options for the creation of a new council covering the greater Woodford, Caboolture, Morayfield , Burpengary and Bribie communities – essentially the present Divisions 1, 2, 3 and 12 of the Moreton Bay Regional Council.

Moreton Bay Regional Council is now the third largest Local Authority in all of Australia.  Yet amalgamation has never worked for the Moreton Bay area.  Many people think it is time to break the area up into two distinct council areas, giving the northern residents more autonomy and a greater chance to rebuild their forgotten communities.

Even the Crime and Corruption Commission of Queensland admits that Moreton Bay Regional Council is riddled with corruption and mismanagement issues.  Its recent report has confirmed many of the problems that Eric has been highlighting over the past five or so years.

With neither Major Party – ALP or LNP – likely to win enough seats in the new 93-seat Queensland Parliament to govern in their own right, this could be the chance of a lifetime to revisit the amalgamation issue and make some sensible changes for the betterment of our area.

If you are interested in being part of this exciting new plan, please contact Eric immediately.
