Shadow Fisheries Minsiter Deb Frecklington visits Cleveland

 

 

Queensland’s Shadow Minister for Fisheries, Deb Frecklington visited Cleveland earlier today to inspect the construction of the new floating walkways at the William Street Boat Ramp and to conduct a discussion with key local Rec Fishing industry representatives.

Member for Cleveland, Mark Robinson said the discussions with the Rec Fishing representatives was very constructive and reaffirmed the LNP’s commitment to representing the interests and concerns of rec fishers in Moreton Bay.

'As an LNP member and the Member for Cleveland, I will continue to fight for a fair go for local rec fishers with policy that supports and grows the industry’.

'There are already over 500,000 rec fishers in Queensland and it is essential that we implement policy that supports this $1 Billion industry', he said.

‘The former LNP Government provided funding of $750,000 for the new boat ramp west of the Cleveland Volunteer Marine Rescue building and two floating pontoon walkways’.

‘The funding for the floating walkways was a part of the original allocation of funding to Redland City Council for the William Street ramp’.

Dr Robinson said that the former LNP government invested over $1 million in marine infrastructure with the new ramp in Cleveland and the recent ramp resurfacing at Wellington Point.

‘The former LNP Government provided funding of $750,000 for the new boat ramp west of the Cleveland Volunteer Marine Rescue building and two floating pontoon walkways,’ said Dr Robinson.

‘The funding for the floating walkways was a part of the original allocation of funding to Redland City Council for the William Street ramp’.

‘The former LNP government invested over $1million in marine infrastructure with the new ramp in Cleveland and the recent ramp resurfacing at Wellington Point’.

‘The boat ramps at William Street are very popular with tens of thousands of users every year. The construction of the floating pontoons will make for a better overall boating experience for Bayside boaties.’

‘The new boat ramp and pontoons are a win for thousands of Redlanders who access the bay for marine recreation and fishing.
