Residents draw to the attention of Brisbane Council the surge in charity collectors, or “Chuggers” in the Central Brisbane District which has left workers, shoppers and visitors feeling uncomfortable walking in certain areas without being, what can be perceived as, ‘accosted’. Residents also draw attention to the safety concerns regarding the impact to pedestrian flow on busy footways such as Adelaide, Queen and Edward streets by these charity collectors.

We ask that Council make a legislative change to limit the concentration of charity collectors and adopt guidelines around specific behaviour of individual charity collectors to ensure that residents and visitors have the right to go about their business without being accosted.
