Margaret Keating, Ocean Shores.
I read in The Echo last issue, that $10million is to be spent to redevelop Cavanbah Centre owing to ‘poor planning prior to construction’. This centre only opened five years ago.
At least we now know where our extraordinary rate rise is being spent.
Who is responsible for this ‘poor planning’ ? And please don’t insult ratepayers by saying the rate rise is being spent on infrastructure to enhance Byron Shire.
If Council got things right in the planning processes, maybe we wouldn’t have needed this extraordinary hardship tax on our community.
Ten million dollars can go a long way to filling potholes.
