Bayside Bulletin 11/12/07
“Deputy Mayor Peter Dowling accused the State Government of letting the community down by refusing to bury the quarry proposal. Councillor Dowling who voted against the quarry said, ‘the government had missed the point’. It could have spared the council costly and difficult court battle.”

“State member for Redlands Peter Dowling said, ‘I am just amazed that a government that seems so environmentally aware have really turned a blind eye to this for the past six or seven years.'”
