Residents draw to the attention of Council, the Teralba Park project to build a fenced enclosure for paid sporting groups/users only. A fence approximately 2 m high will restrict current park users from entering the space on a permanent basis. The visual impact of the facility does not seem to have been assessed. The financial viability of the facility does not seem to have been assessed. The community's health and environmental concerns do not seem to have been addressed. If Council consents to this section of park being fenced-off, what other parks around Brisbane might be fenced-off in future?

We request that the project construction be postponed until there is adequate reason why our public open space can be restricted permanently without community consultation. We request community consultation be conducted of local residents and park users before construction commences at the end of January 2019.
