Greens Table Petition to Stop Kangaroo Bay Land Transfer

Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens' Member for Franklin

I had the pleasure of tabling a petition signed by 273 Bellerive residents in Parliament today, calling on the Hodgman Government to stop the transfer of public land in Kangaroo Bay to Chambroad Petrochemicals. 

Almost all of the petition’s signatures were gathered in a single day.

The Hodgman Government is in the process of transferring land owned by the Bellerive community to a Chinese petrochemical company to build an enormous building on Cambridge Road.

Liberals and Labor United on Crown Land Deals

Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Environment spokesperson

Labor and the Liberals voted together against a Greens' Motion calling for far greater transparency in Crown Land deals with private developers.

Under the Hodgman Government, deals are being done with developers over public land, through the secretive Office of the Coordinator-General.  There is no requirement for public consultation on unsolicited bids or a decision by the State Government to make publicly owned assets available.

Why Did the Premier Take Crown Land Responsibility Away From Groom?

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens' Leader 

In a move he failed to explain when asked by the Greens in Question Time today, the Premier has relieved Environment and Parks Minister, Matthew Groom, of his responsibility for Crown Lands.

We believe this move is unprecedented.  Crown Land Services has customarily been the responsibility of the Minister for Environment and Parks.  To hive off this relatively small area of the portfolio is more than unusual.

Desperate Liberals Mislead over Crown Land

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens' Leader 

In the middle of a private developer feeding frenzy over public Crown Land assets, including treasured coastal areas, the Liberals have released a laughably desperate list of properties sold under the previous government.

Every government, to some extent, will make available for sale or lease public property that is either surplus to requirements, no longer in use or could be put to a substantially better use.
