Professional Background

After graduating from the university of Queensland in 1985 as a physiotherapist Peter worked in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom in hospitals and private practice. Upon returning to Australia he started Cleveland physiotherapy and sports injuries clinic in 1990.

Peter successfully owned and operated this practice treating more than 15,000 local Redland City based residents.

Peter has also completed his Master of Sport Physiotherapy (Honours) at Griffith University in 1999.

Following this Peter was selected as a physiotherapist for the Sydney, 2000 olympics, and also for the Brisbane Goodwill Games.

Peter has is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and previously of Sports Medicine Australia.

Peter is currently an active member of the Redland City chamber of commerce and is a regular MC at various events around Redlands.

Early in 2015, Peter decided to exit the industry at the top of his game, and wanted to become more community focused and help give back to the people that have been so gracious and supportive throughout Peters professional career and personal life in this great city we call Redland City.

I am one of you; a local resident who has decided this community deserves an enthusiastic and intelligent representation. I am a self-funded independent candidate. My 25 years as a Physiotherapist have taught me to first listen to people carefully and then work with them to solve their problems. Communication between us has been the key.

I have a wide range of personal, business and life experiences that allow me to see issues from the perspective of others, to “walk a mile in their shoes”. I am a married father of 4 grown daughters, widely travelled in Australia and also overseas, a small business owner and a keen sportsman and outdoor enthusiast. I am an active community volunteer and participant in local events.

My work ethic, enthusiasm, and willingness to learn has seen me almost always succeed in the things I commit myself to.

I am now fully committed to be elected as Councillor for Redland City, and to be energetic and innovative, to stay connected to the people, and be a faithful representative of their wishes.

Updated Boundary Of Division 2

The western boundary of Division 2 will return to the existing boundary that follows the Cleveland locality boundary along the Hilliards Creek and then east to South Street resulting in Division 2 retaining 543 electors in the west (from Division 7) that was detailed in the Proposed Determination. In addition the boundary then veers north at the roundabout to follow Wellington Street, before heading east along Bay Street. As a result of this change, 301 electors will be lost in the south to Division 3 instead of the 817 in the Proposed Determination.

All of Stradbroke Island is also included in division 2. This is unchanged after recent boundary reviews.
