Government reneging on promise for public land for Wacol.

Does Premier Bligh want Wacol’s kangaroo population to suffer slow death from development?

In 2006 then Premier Beattie promised the community that 200 hectares of State government owned land in SW Brisbane suburb of Wacol would be used as “public recreation and open space”, once the Tick Fever Centre which is currently there is moved to another location (later this year).

The current Bligh government is reneging on this promise, click here for details.
