Should Everton Hills Become Part of Brisbane City Council?

2 Aug 2012 Brian Brady 0 Comment

There is currently a debate going on in Everton Park’s neighbouring suburb of Everton Hills, over which council it should belong to.

At present, the city boundary lines between the Brisbane City Council and the Moreton Bay Regional Council exists on Illawara Street and divides residents living between Everton Park and Everton Hills.

The residents of Everton Hills are making is known however, that they would prefer that the boundary lines changes so that they are included in the Brisbane City Council and officially considered as Brisbanites.

The rest of the Hills district and the former Pine Rivers Shire also seem to be in support of becoming part of the Brisbane City Council, not only to gain a stronger connection to Brisbane but also because it seems that Brisbane City residents are paying cheaper rates and water and sewerage charges than those in the Moreton region.

This is particularly pronounced on Illawara Street, where neighbouring homes have shown that they are paying more for simply living on the wrong side of the council border line.

The Electoral Commission of Queensland is currently undergoing an investigation to see if a border change should be made and it if it finds that it should then residents of Bunya, Arana Hills and Everton Hills could all soon become part of the Brisbane City Council.

Residents who want the Hills District to become part of the Brisbane City Council can support the movement by making a submission to Commissioner David Kerslake who is heading the Electoral Commission of Queensland’s investigation.

Those making submissions have until August 20, and they can do so by emailing reviews@ecq.qld.au or by visiting http://www.ecq.qld.gov.au/onlineForm.aspx?ekfrm=6493.
