Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner and Councillor Adam Allan have broken their election promise to residents of Northgate Ward.
They have cut the BMX Track, Dog Off-Leash Area, Fitness Path and Playground from the current contract tender for the Nudgee Recreation Reserve District Sports Park Project. Residents therefore call for the immediate reinstatement of the BMX Track, Dog Off-Leash Area, Fitness Path and Playground in the current construction contract.
Why is this important?
The Lord Mayor has announced the project would now not include a BMX Track, Dog Park, Fitness Path and Playground in its first stage, after a budget blowout. These simple assets of local community benefit were promised to the residents as an LNP election commitment in 2020 and were already tendered out. The decision, with the full support of Cr Adam Allan, to negotiate these out of the current construction contract show poor community priorities while other items in the contract including irrigated sports fields, a leased clubhouse and a 200 space car park are unchanged.
