Dear News Of The Area,
I’VE noticed that in recent editions the Bay News Of The Area paper has received some negative views about the resistance to high rise in the CBD.
Or CLICK FOR ADVERT QUOTE
I’d like to point out that it’s not that I object so much about the high rise, although I do think 35 metres is a rather ridiculous height, my main objection is the way council has “mandated” (the word used in the minutes is “endorsed”), without any community consultation at all and, worse than that, miss reported what consensus that was achieved in 2012.
On my own accord I dug out the 53 page “strategy” document from the council website to see for myself and discovered the absolute travesty of it and wrote an assessment and sent it back to council personally, i.e. NOT as a spokesperson for the Tomaree Ratepayers And Residents Association (TRRA).
As you know I let off steam through my pencil.
I’ll leave the gag as my say in the matter.
Thanks for reading, and don’t you have any other issues of a lighter nature that I can get to work on?
