PETITION TO PRESERVE PARADISE PALMS AS A COMMUNITY AMENITY ASSET, GREEN SPACE,

PUBLIC ACCESS GOLF COURSE AND TOURIST DRAWCARD.

We the undersigned petition the Cairns Regional Council to ensure that Paradise Palms Golf and Country Club is kept operating as the important Community Amenity asset that it is. This is essential to the entire Region’s future
well-being.

We are told that the current owner’s preferred plan for the property is to close the Golf Course and apply to rezone it for residential subdivision. A successful re-zoning application and Development Approval would impact very negatively on the entire community through major loss of amenity, green space and tourists. It would alsocause a significant decline in the property values of existing homes in the area. We ask that Council refuse any application made to re-zone the property for any alternate use and we strongly believe that Council ownership of the facility is an option that should be supported if no suitable alternative buyer emerges.


Principal Petitioner: Robert McPhail, Chairman, PPRA Inc. T/A Save Paradise Palms Golf Course, C/O Lot 8,
Paradise Palms Drive, Latitude North, Kewarra Beach, QLD 4879.
