Residents draw to the attention of Brisbane City Council the eviction of the tenants of 'Rankins on the Mall' Newsagent in Queen Street Mall, Brisbane City. This kiosk is a Brisbane icon and landmark, and its loss would be greatly detrimental to the appeal of Queen Street Mall, significantly changing the dynamic of the area and removing a widely-known and well-patronised establishment in exchange for 'open space' that is superfluous, given the abundance of open space already available in the immediate surroundings.

Your petitioners therefore request that Council immediately renew the lease for the tenants of 'Rankins on the Mall', and continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
