The Future of Moggill-Bellbowrie

A forum on how to win what the Moggill-Bellbowrie community needs

Moggill-Bellbowrie has been neglected

Successive governments have ignored the needs of this rapidly growing area, so when Brisbane flooded early in 2022 the peninsula was entirely cut off: parents were stranded separate from their children, businesses couldn't get people to work. The community rallied, but it was clear to me that it is long past time for there to be a vision for the future of the community that tackles the persistent, interconnected problems residents have raised. 

Let's talk amenities

One of the key features of a sustainable city is having public amenities and green space easily accessible without a car. Moggill-Bellbowrie doesn't have enough public amenities to allow residents to stay in the area for their daily essentials, nor is it served well by public transport infrastructure so they can connect with amenities elsewhere. As a result, road safety and traffic congestion continue to cause headaches. Yet major projects tackling transport and amenities for Brisbane do nothing for Moggill-Bellbowrie.

A designed solution

Community members are the experts of their area, so their voices should be prioritised when designing infrastructure. Too often, governments ignore the voices of community members. I want to work with the residents of Moggill-Bellbowrie to design a comprehensive, planned solution that considers the needs of the community holistically. 

Come discuss solutions

💡 A public transport bridge that takes cars off Moggill Rd and connects with public transport across the river, while doubling as an escape route in emergencies.

💡 A new high school, a library, a neighbourhood centre and specialist medical facilities to reduce the need to travel.
