The aim of REPA Inc. is to contribute positively to the planning process in ways which will preserve the rural amenity of the district which now comprises the major part of the Pullenvale Ward. REPA Inc. is a community-based planning association which has been active in the Brookfield-Pullenvale-Moggill area, and adjoining rural suburbs, since 1973. REPA operates for the long-term benefit of local residents and the balanced development of the City of Brisbane and also participates in local environmental community projects.
REPA is currently (June-July 2015) involved in three court cases regarding local developments.
One of the three court cases has recently been 'struck out'. This was Appeal 3383/12 (land at 3334 Moggill Road) in which the owner appealed against the Council for refusing his application to subdivide nearly 12 ha into 26 lots on well vegetated land in Moggill.
REPA is of the opinion that its participation in the case reinforced Council’s position regarding refusing the application and may well have contributed to the case being 'stuck out', though that now may be challenged. The outcome is good news for that piece of land which is connected to other areas of good habitat and also good news for several neighbouring residents.
REPA is still pursuing the other two court cases, in both of which REPA has elected to be a Co-Respondent in support of Council’s refusal of the respective proposals.
These cases are carefully reviewed by REPA at each of our Committee meetings.
Please join REPA to receive additional information regarding these court cases.

There are currently (mid-2015) several development applications for properties in Moggill that are located within a "Koala Assessable Development Area" (KADA). These are subject to certain regulations regarding vegetation clearing. REPA considers that all the remaining koala habitat in Moggill needs to be preserved if the koala population there is to be retained. REPA has objected to several subdivision proposals, two are currently the subjects of appeals by the developers. Others are still in the planning stage.
The Appeals are both in the Planning and Environment Court, Nos 3383/12 and 144/14. Details may be accessed on the eCourts web-site as indicated under Moggill Country Club.
