Rob MolhoekState Member for Southport

How can I help you?

My vision for our City is to see it grow and develop into a City where businesses are encouraged to be enterprising but also supports and nurtures families and community networks. A City which is inviting and safe for residents and visitors regardless of religion, race or origin. A City which is well planned and sustainable, a City which is so outstanding that everyone else on the planet wished they lived here too.

I’m here to serve the Southport Electorate, which includes the suburbs of Ashmore, Keebra Park, Crestwood Heights, Molendinar, Benowa and Bundall. If I can ever be of service please feel free to contact me on 0430 209 995 or at southport@parliament.qld.gov.au

The SOUTHPORT TEN

Legal Precinct & Supreme Court

Work with Council to review planning overlays and conditions to attract more legal services, professional chambers and more court services into the CBD

Light Rail to Gold Coast Airport

Overwhelming support for connection to the airport as a priority. Also support for connectivity from Griffith Uni to Hope Is and Coomera over the long term.

Capacity of local Schools

In-fill development and the Games Village are pushing local schools over quota, all schools in the catchment need to be redeveloped in such a way that maximum greenspace is preserved and building footprints better optimised. Also need a new school in the CBD adjacent to light rail.

War on Drugs

There needs to be a more comprehensive strategy developed to deal with Criminal Gangs and the Ice Epidemic, which may require tougher sentencing, more police and better services.

Sundale Bridge and Traffic Congestion

How do we improve traffic flow into and through Southport, Surfers, The Spit and Broadbeach

Smith St Overpass into Molendinar from West

There is no direct access from Smith St into the Molendinar Industrial Estate, either for heavy vehicles or pedestrian traffic from the new light rail station.

Hooning & rat-running

Better monitoring and enforcement in problem areas, Smith St Motorway and Molendinar Industrial Estate. Improved traffic management and sequencing of traffic lights across the electorate.

Youth Foyer & more Crisis Accommodation

There is a significant shortage of crisis accommodation on the Gold Coast and a real need for more supportive accommodation models for young people in crisis.

Business Attraction CBD

Need to attract large corporations and develop large plate A grade business accommodation into CBD Southport (Old hospital and other key development sites)

Ridgeway Ave TAFE Future

Local residents don’t want the site sold for property development, they would like to see the site recommissioned for community purposes or a new school.

Broadwater Management

On-going commitment to dredging and managing growing recreational and commercial use.

      Laird Marshall President Southport Chamber of Commerce

      I’m not personally aware of any political aspirant, whether they be initially a Shadow member or later, a member of State Government, who’s found the time and ongoing belief in his Electorate, that’s as dedicated as Rob. Rob never loses the belief that changes can be made to assist both Business and the Residents of Southport, to make a holistic difference and advance the opportunities for all and never seek short-term gains that will benefit some but lose our Identity that attracts so many here.

    Rob, fundraisers are great at bringing communities together and raising people’s awareness of the problems some people face each day.

    But why are they necessary ?

    From your experience in parliament, can you explain why services like Vinnie’s aren’t fully funded by taxes already?

    Surely homes for homeless people are more important than most things that the government spends our money on?

    Using homeless people to feather his political nest

    Well done rob, doing well, keep it up and good luck again

    Good on you Rob keep up the good work don’t listen ignorant one’s because God has you in his hands Bro

    Ralph Reilly we all know that politics is a numbers game, but, we should congratulate those trying to make a difference, I know it is hard to differentiate because there are wolves in sheep’s clothing, but let’s try to give credit where credit is due!
    Good work rob molhoek!

    Vote Labor 😊

    I wonder be careful who you vote for aussies think of your children’s future choices are important

    Martina Chelini lets do it!

    To whom it may concern Rob is a Christian Man who always says what he means and does what he sets out to accomplish, dawn Critchlow is the one in Southport no one should trust at all
