So Cr Warren Polglase wants Tweed Council to sell off all its landholdings?
I am sure most developers would appreciate the opportunity to buy prime real estate at the bottom of the market. Got any buyers in mind, Warren?
The premier of Queensland flogged off millions of dollars community assets and the electors handed her the greatest political flogging on record in that state. Warren justifies the ‘sell-off’ by claiming the money could be used to improve infrastructure.
Wouldn’t releasing more prime land to developers increase the demand on infrastructure given that they contribute comparatively very little to infrastructure costs generated under this council’s generous conditions that accompany DA assessment approvals?
Community real estate assets are essential for the provision of future community facilities, such as parks and recreation areas, libraries, sports centres, auditoriums, and local health and community centres etc. This legacy handed to us by the initiative and foresight of the pioneering forefathers of this shire must not be destroyed by those who live to profit from the present.
