Forde Electorate: Meadowbrook Golf Club
We have all looked on at times at various legal disputes that have dragged on for years and years, and I'm sad to share with the House one such dispute going on between a local club—actually, it's in the member for Rankin's electorate, but many of the members are from my part of the world—Meadowbrook Golf Club and Logan City Council.
I've had the pleasure of playing golf at the Meadowbrook Golf Club regularly over the past 30 years and also have a membership at the club. But the ongoing saga of the sewer pipeline that was put through the course—the work started in 2011—its impact on the course over many, many years and the ongoing differences in terms of what should have been compensation between the council and the golf course are yet to be resolved. I would ask both parties involved in this matter to take the time to sit down and have a constructive discussion and to bring these matters to finalisation, in the interests of the members of the golf club and in the interests of the ratepayers of Logan City Council. I call on both parties to do that.
