University_of_Queensland

The vast majority of St Lucia residents have expressed their serious concern to our Greens team about UQ’s masterplan, specifically the potential expansion of their Community Infrastructure Designation (CID) to include areas around Hawken Drive and the Avalon Theatre and Long Pocket precincts. Significant concerns have also been raised about the undemocratic makeup of the Senate – the key decision-making body of the University.

 

The Greens will:

  • Oppose any expansion of UQ’s Community Infrastructure Designation
  • Oppose the introduction of a mass transit bridge in Guyatt Park for buses and taxis
  • Propose changes to Queensland’s Universities Act that seek to democratise the University and increase the number of elected staff and student positions on the Senate.
