Strata insurance inquiry


The parliamentary inquiry into residential strata insurance in tropical Queensland rolls into town rolls at the end of the month. Public submissions to this inquiry close next Monday 16 January and should make for some interesting light reading. Public hearings are to be held later this month in Port Douglas, Cairns, Townsville and Mackay:
  • Port Douglas – Monday 30th January, Port Douglas Community Hall, Mowbray St 9am – 12pm
  • Cairns – Monday 30th January, Sebel Hotel, 17 Abbott St 2:30pm – 5:30pm
  • Townsville – Wednesday 1 February 2012, 9am-3pm, Reef HQ, 2 - 68 Flinders St, with videconferencing available to Mackay from 1pm-3pm, Central Queensland University, 6/G.03 Boundary Rd, Planlands. 
Loose Change may be absent on a southern family sojourn so sadly is likely to miss the hearing theatricals. The inquiry is being conducted by the House Standing Commmittee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs which has been supplemented for this inquiry by the inclusion of Warren Entsch.

Recent commentary related to Council rates and strata units has also been noted as local elections draw closer and Loose Change is sure to return to this topic being a subject of keen  personal interest.
