REPA seeks to improve the standard of local development by:
- Helping residents with interpretation of The City Plan and to examine restrictions relating to the new Rural and Environment Protected Areas, including assisting in the retention of environmental and aesthetic values in Brookfield/Pullenvale/Pinjarra Hills/Anstead/Moggill areas within the confines of the City Plan 2014.
- Engaging in active dialogue with the City Council on environmental issues e.g. Mt Coot-tha Development Control Plan, Land for Wildlife, Voluntary Conservation Agreements.
- Supporting environmentally sensitive development applications.
- Objecting to insensitive development and where appropriate taking the developer to court.
- Recent examples have been continuing involvement over the upgrade of Gap Creek Road; support for the residents of Karana Downs in their objection to development on the Golf Course and submissions on the draft Moggill / Bellbowrie Local Plan.
- Maintain a watchful eye on potential major issues such as a possible Western Brisbane Bypass and other transport issues.
- Consider the merits and demerits of all development applications for our area, recommending improvements where desirable.
- Support environmental groups undertaking revegetation within the REPA area, including Moggill Creek and Pullen Pullen Creeks Catchment Groups.
- Promote revegetation with species native to our area through our book "Putting Back the Forest: A Landcare Guide for Broofield, Pullenvale and Moggill" (written and produced by REPA members).
- Promote knowledge of weeds and weed control through various publications.
- Organise an annual walk each spring to places of scenic or cultural interest within our area.
- Provide an information stand at the annual Brookfield Show and Brookfield Country Market.
