Jobs, development key topics at Gladstone Community Cabinet

GOT a suggestion for the State Government on how they could help Gladstone?

You'll have the chance to tell them yourself when the premier and her ministers visit Gladstone for the first Community Cabinet session of 2016.

It has just been announced in parliament that Tannum Sands High School will host the event on January 31 and February 1 - exactly one year after the election.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Gladstone would play an important role in job creation and expanding Queensland's economy.

"We understand the importance of striking a balance that protects the environment, while also supporting economic development, jobs and future trade growth.

"These are all key issues to the future prosperity of the Fitzroy region, and the Gladstone Community Cabinet meeting will provide an opportunity for locals to sit down with my Ministers and department heads to discuss issues that are important to them and their local community," Ms Palaszczuk said.

The session will give the community the chance to speak face to face with the people representing Queensland and

Gladstone MP Glenn Butcher wants as many people as possible to get involved.

The Gladstone Community Cabinet will be held on Sunday January 31 at Tannum Sands State High School.

A public forum will be held from 1pm with formal deputations to take place from 2.30pm-4.30pm.

The community is encouraged to request a formal deputation to ensure a meeting.

It's only been two years since Gladstone last hosted the State Government Community Cabinet where more than 120 people and groups took the opportunity to speak directly to ministers.

When he arrived in August 2013, former Premier Campbell Newman was greeted with protests.

The session highlighted issues including land sales - specifically land for the future Calliope High School, road infrastructure and crime prevention strategies.
