Newman willing to listen on review

DE-AMALGAMATION for the Rockhampton region isn’t out of the question, according to Campbell Newman.

The new leader of the LNP said if elected, the party would consider reviewing some amalgamations that were done under the Labor Government.

“We’re prepared to say that we will have a boundary review commission and we’ll look at opportunities for de-amalgamation,” Mr Newman said.

But he said if the Rockhampton region wanted to be included in the review, ratepayers would have to plead their case.

“The only ones we’re committing to specifically look at, at this stage, are Noosa, and also Port Douglas, Mossman. We are prepared to look at other locations though but we’d have to hear what people have to say first. We have some criteria, it can’t cost the state of Queensland any money and it can’t cost the rate payers money.”
