Brisbane City Council Shame File # 46

Brisbane City Council needs to enforce better and adequate pollution controls in Henricks Street Hemmant.

Our Group Complained to The Brisbane City Council 2.00 pm 22 September 2003 with reference number R468891

It appears that the Local Councillor has not looked after his DOBOY ward.  Maybe the Councillor should move back into his electorate and look after as he is paid to do so.  I would not want to live in his electorate maybe he doesn't want to either.  Any wonder?

Our complaint was about:

  1. The plastic waste entering the tidal drain opposite.
  2. The Property had no House Number.
  3. The gates of the property opened outwards onto the road and remained open all day.
  4. The owner had not installed an industrial driveway at their entrance.

Yet after six months the site is actually worse.

The Enforcement of Brisbane City Council By-laws appears to be nonexistent in this street.

Maybe we should have electoral voting of enforcement managers and ALL their staff.

It's a shame that the BCC continues to allow this to continue happening.
