Because we certainly don’t. The site was bought by Brisbane City Council from the Queensland State Government at about the time of the last state election, and everything has gone pretty quiet since then. All the time that nothing is happening is effectively wasted time for the site, when it could be either redeveloped to revitalise the centre of Wynnum or at least used on a pro tem basis for other events and activities.
Of course the BAM event was held in the old school grounds recently and a small number of voluntary groups have been allowed to use the facilities, but this is nowhere near using the site and buildings to their full potential.
Last year the Chamber’s Wynnum Redevelopment Taskforce conducted a survey of over 600 local residents asking them what they would like to see on the site. The survey findings were presented to council, but no response has been given by council to date.
We are very interested to know what is happening or being planned and we will contact Brisbane City Council soon to see if we can find out. We’ll keep you posted.
