This Saturday (24/04/21) at 10am, hundreds if not thousands of residents are expected to flock to Langley Ave Park in Wilston for a massive community rally.

Residents in Brisbane’s inner-north are furious with Brisbane City Council over plans to overhaul the Enoggera Creek Sports and Recreation Precinct.

The precinct is also home to multiple sporting clubs, stretching from near the RBWH to Spencer Park.

Residents in the area are furious with the LNP-run Council, saying it’s the “most poorly planned project in history”.

Enoggera Sports Precinct Controversial Draft Plan

The concerns list of locals is long and they’re not willing to let the current proposal fly.

They also say they weren’t consulted properly on the plans before the draft was announced and they only found out about the overhaul thanks to small signs placed in parks.

To fight back against the Council and make sure they’re listened to, residents have set up a Facebook action group which now has around 900 members.

They’ve also started an e-petition which has already reached over 2,000 signatures.

They’ve made signs for their fences and even put their messages on billboards.
