Have your say on the proposed Jimboomba locality boundaries
11 July 2017
Department of Natural Resources and Mines Executive Director South Region Ken Sherwood said the proposal involved altering the existing boundaries of the localities of Flagstone, Jimboomba and South Maclean and creating the new localities of Glenlogan and Riverbend.
“The proposed changes will define new locality boundaries to the east of the Brisbane-Sydney interstate railway line within the Jimboomba region,” Mr Sherwood said.
“Whilst Flagstone, Jimboomba and South Maclean are existing localities, Glenlogan recognises the former location of Glenlogan Park thoroughbred stud farm on Lance Road. The name Riverbend is based on a prominent geographic feature in the Logan River at the southern end of that locality.”
Mr Sherwood said Logan City Council suggested these changes in July 2016 to cater for the existing and future residential growth of the Jimboomba region over the next 20 years.
“Reviewing and defining locality boundaries within the Jimboomba region will ensure boundaries reflect the future structure of the community and ensure minimal address changes for new residents,” Mr Sherwood said.
“Stakeholders including Logan City Council, the Public Safety Business Agency, Australia Post, Telstra and the Flagstone Community Association have already been consulted and the Government is now seeking the views of the wider community in the affected areas.
“The public and community groups can make submissions on the proposal until the close of consultation on 21 July 2017. This public feedback is then considered by the Minister for State Development and Natural Resources and Mines before a decision is made on whether to accept and approve a proposal.”
