ANGERED Greenbank residents in their hundreds flocked to the Greenbank Community Centre on Wednesday night to throw their support behind the “Save Greenbank” action group.
The group was formed to protest the development application by Teviot Downs Pty Ltd to turn a portion of the semi-rural community into a high density residential estate with building blocks as small as 320sqm, and challenge the development approval by the Urban Land Development Authority (UDLA).
Spokesperson for the residents group, Mike Kelly believes current legislation fails to address the need for residents to voice their objection to proposed developments such as the one they are fighting.

Koala and quoll populations in a Logan district are set to be wiped out unless the Federal Government stops a major industrial precinct proposed as part of State Government plans for the region, local conservationists say.
