Welcome to the blog site of the Community Alliance for Responsible Planning (CARP) Redlands Inc.
If you would like to stop the State Government
from massively increasing the population of the Redlands
before they have provided us the roads, transport, community facilities & jobs
we need now… then please make a submission.
Draft South East Queensland Regional Plan 2015-41
The State Government’s Draft South East Queensland (SEQ) Regional Plan 2015-2041 responds to development industry pressure by planning for 5.35 million people to live in SEQ by 2041.
That’s… bigger than Sydney is now!
Here in the Redlands the Draft SEQ Regional Plan 2041 requires:
- a massive 25% increase in population – to reach a presumed target of 188,000
- this means 38,000 more people needing 21,100 dwellings & bringing some 31,000 more cars
- 14,400 of these dwellings are to be squeezed as ‘infill’ into existing back yards & urban areas
- and 6,700 are to be built on our precious green lands.
As you know, the Redlands is already under huge stress. The attached ready-made submission deals with the problems the State Government needs to solve first for us, the people here NOW.
If massive overdevelopment is not the future you want for the Redlands –
