The clean outs are well underway in Queensland. Take note John Key..this is how you clean house.

The Newman government has asked all 12 members of the Queensland Heritage Council to resign and reapply for their positions as part of a major review.

Sources within the conservation movement today said many members were shocked by the call, which was made in a letter from Environment and Heritage Protection Minister Andrew Powell last week.

A spokeswoman for Mr Powell confirmed the move in a written statement to this morning.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the QHC, which was formed in 1992 as part of the Queensland Heritage Act to compile a Queensland Heritage Register.

“The Newman government wants to renew, consolidate and strengthen the Queensland Heritage Council to reflect its increased standing and recognition in the environment portfolio and in government,” the government spokeswoman said.

“As part of this process, current members have been asked to resign, to allow a considered process to be undertaken.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
