Show us the plan

QUEENSLAND Health needs to be more forthcoming with its building plans at Warwick Hospital if anything is going to be done about the lack of parking, councillors say.

At this week's general meeting the councillors vowed to approach QH and ask for a rundown of future construction plans after Cr Jo McNally said she had heard some staff parking could be lost to new buildings.

"We need to know what the plans are and that way we can move forward," Cr McNally said.

"I definitely think there needs to be better communication; because of the impact it has we should have been advised at the early stages."

Cr Neil Meiklejohn raised concerns attempts to increase the number of parking spaces across the road from the hospital could be futile if more staff parking was lost.

Engineering services director Peter See said he was unaware of further developments at the hospital.

"There is a new building being constructed at the back of the hospital, we have had no official notice. The State (Government) hasn't officially told us anything," he said.

Minister for Health Lawrence Springborg said he was confident the parking issues would be worked through by the new health board, chaired by Michael Horan.

"I am confident that communications between Queensland Health and the Southern Downs Regional Council will be direct and effective," he said.

He said he was sure the board would also work through any parking issues caused by construction works at the hospital.

Cr Meiklejohn said he hoped there would be more information about QH's development plans by the next council meeting so they could consider what resources council needed to cough up in the next budget.

"There is sort of a six to eight week time line (with the budget deliberations)," Cr Meiklejohn said.
