Your Voice. Your Noosa.

As an Independent Member of the Queensland Parliament, I am honoured to represent the wonderful diversity that is Noosa, not a political party or personal ideology. This is liberating and empowering for the residents of our electorate and provides opportunity to create a future that you have envisioned. One that is bold in researching ideas and trialling new ways to address our challenges, through the development of partnerships and a focus on what unites. One that encourages open discussion and respectful debate which concentrates on common ground and what can be achieved. One that considers all viewpoints and perspectives, with objective research and a passion for people, that puts Noosa first.

I am your voice. It is your Noosa.

MP AFTERHOURS - NATIONAL PALLIATIVE CARE WEEK 🙏🏼This week gave occasion to catch up with the Palliative Care Queensland Inc. team and understand what we need to do to ensure that this year’s theme of ‘Its Your Right’ is understood by all, especially governments. Their message is simple - every person that has a life limiting illness has the right to live as well as possible, for as long as possible. You can support Palliative Care QLD in this mission by lighting a ‘virtual candle’ via palliativecareqld.org.au/candlesforcare/. Their website can also be used as a resource for lots of important information, including 60 minute courses on a wide range of topics, like how to help children with loss. And yes - I am aware that my sign is upside down, but thankfully Shyla's was right side up😂 #givenow #compassionatecommunities #candlesforcare #ambulancewish #pallilearn ... See MoreSee Less

KIN KIN RD 10t LIMIT UPDATE FROM TMR MAY 24 2022. The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) advises that the temporary 10 tonne limit (the total weight of a vehicle, including its load) remains in place on a section of Kin Kin Road. TMR is reviewing this daily. This temporary restriction applies on Kin Kin Road from Louis Bazzo Drive in Pomona to Cooloola Way near Como. Variable message signs (VMS) have been in place on Kin Kin Road and some local connecting roads to advise motorists of these temporary restrictions since the mass limit was implemented on Thursday, 12 May 2022. The limit is being applied under Section 46 of the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994. The maximum penalty for breaching these restrictions is 200 penalty units, which equates to $27,570. This is enforceable by TMR's Transport Inspectors.Based on reports of heavy vehicle use exceeding the 10 tonne limit on this section of Kin Kin Road, additional signage is being installed to increase awareness and TMR Transport Inspectors are operating on Kin Kin Road to monitor and enforce compliance.TMR has provided a general exemption for school buses, and a single use permit for a truck to remove effluent from school and public amenity septic tanks in Kin Kin prior to potential flooding, but no other exemptions have been given to date.This is a short-term measure only, to preserve the road from further damage with recent and ongoing rain, and while we continue to schedule repairs.These restrictions will be lifted as soon as possible, when TMR determines that it is appropriate. This will be a measured and balanced determination with considerations including current and predicted weather conditions, road and pavement conditions, scheduled repairs, impacts on businesses, and the need for community services such as refuse collection to resume as quickly as possible. TMR is reviewing daily and will send further advice when the limit is lifted.TMR is continuing pavement repairs on Kin Kin Road as weather and pavement conditions, and scheduling permit. Periods of heavy rain mean potholes and defects can form quickly, and unfortunately repairs sometimes do not hold if there is continued wet weather. We urge all road users to drive safely to the prevailing conditions.If you require more information, please contact the TMR North Coast Region office on 5451 7055 or email northcoast@tmr.qld.gov.au. ...
