Annie Radermacher, Brunswick Heads
Oh thanks Simon Richardson, you have resorted to name calling now? You may have heard our reservations, but obviously you have not listened.
Can I ask how many boarding-houses are in your residential area? One? Two? Three? Oh that’s right, a big fat zero. So, amenities, what do we have here? None, zero, zilch – no connecting footpaths, no connecting cycle ways.
We do have an ageing 30-year-old gravity fed sewage system. But we have no shops, no cafes. We have 40+ hectares of bushland that surrounds our isolated estate, and a storm water system filled with ready mixed cement – is that why it fails? Oh that’s right, it was all supposed to be fixed up, but how long have we been waiting? And don’t forget we have no public transport.
So where is this existing character that allows such a high density, so called ‘affordable boarding-house’, to be built? Again, are we just to allow this, now that you’re saying $500 a week for a boarding house room is fine by you? Wow. Perhaps you could tell us how this fits in with the constant promises of our Council providing affordable housing?
You just might want to look into what’s gone on NSW wide. Sydney key workers are pissed at their promised affordable housing rent being $485 a week. The heading is just pimping affordable housing. Sydney’s key workers backed it, but had no idea the promises were meant to be broken. We in Bayside are used to it.
