Last Monday about 100 residents came (in winter! at dinner time!) and voiced strong opinions about a proposed Territory plan variation that would allow even MORE residential development on two pieces of land in north Watson. (You can see which ones in this survey link https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScMgLyjnFpraLBQgIJ9QepexN9XwM_JpEft0Ax-Fp-q6ME6hA/viewform and please complete the survey before the extended date of 5th August!)
That development would be ON TOP of hundreds of dwellings (some multi storey) already approved in Aspinall St (Norrebro – channel 9), Negus Cres and the old Carotel site. This affects the whole suburb not just those in the north!
Government reps and consultants were asked some tough questions about the survey itself and the consultation process (past and present), about traffic and school numbers, about the encroachment of development on green space and needed amenities, and about the lack of overall planning for the whole suburb.
The fight is on in the short term to retain leisure and community use on these two pieces of land, but also in the longer term to see a master plan established for Watson
COME NEXT MONDAY AND SEE WHAT PART YOU CAN PLAY, BIG OR SMALL, SHORT TERM OR LONG
